Bush's Service Dog Sully To Help Wounded Veterans

A heartbreaking photo was posted on the dog's social media account Sunday night showing him sleeping in front of the flag-draped casket of his late master, George H.W. Bush.

He became such a beloved part of Bush's life that Bush even had socks with Sully's face on them as part of his colorful sock collection.

Sully, whose full name is Sully H.W. Bush, will return to America's VetDogs, an organization located in Smithtown, New York, that provides service dogs to "veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities", the organization's website says.

Bush family spokesperson Jim McGrath tweeted the picture of the socks Monday morning. President Donald Trump, who ordered federal offices closed on Wednesday for a national day of mourning, is to attend with first lady Melania Trump. His body will be transported by motorcade to St. Martin's Episcopal Church, where he and his wife regularly worshipped. A memorial service at the National Cathedral will follow.

Monday evening's ceremony is expected to begin around 4:45 p.m. The remains will be transported by funeral auto (train) to College Station. He wrote, "Air Force One has arrived in Houston for what will technically be called "Special Air Mission 41" tomorrow and Wednesday". The elder Bush's body will be buried in a family plot at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.

X-Men actress Olivia Munn shared the photo, saying: "President George H.W. Bush". Barbara Bush died on April 17 at their Houston home.
