Trump will not be speaking at funeral for George H.W. Bush

The picture was tweeted by Mr Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, showing Sully next to Mr Bush's casket on Sunday along with the caption: "Mission complete".

A photo of former President George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, lying in front of the flag-dropped coffin of his owner has won the hearts of thousands.

The nation's 41st president died Friday at his home in Houston at 94.

While the services are split between Washington and Texas, many in Kennebunkport, Maine also feel a personal connection to the late president.

Sully will make the journey with his last master to Washington D.C. on Monday where Bush will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol until Wednesday, Business Insider reported.

Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B.

Bush received Sully in June from America's VetDogs nonprofit organization. Bush's family has not said who will speak at the service.

He will now work as a service dog, assisting with therapy for wounded soldiers.

It appears that Sully and Bush's connection was near instantaneous, with both the former president and the pup's social media accounts sharing pics of their time together.

Both Bush's wife Barbara, the former first lady who died in April, and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child, are laid to rest on the library's grounds.
