Sully, a yellow Labrador who became Bush's service dog in June, will make one last trip ith the former president, accompanying his casket to Washington, D.C., a trip McGrath says has the call sign is "Special Air Mission 41".

Mr Bush, who served as the 41st U.S. president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94.

The casket will be accompanied to Joint Base Andrews, outside Washington, by the 43rd president, Bush's son George W Bush; his wife, Laura; his brother Neil Bush and his family.

A highly trained service dog, Sully will now go back into service to help other veterans and is going to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, former President George W. Bush wrote in an Instagram post.

In a second message, she said she hoped readers and ticket holders would understand the decision "and join me in paying tribute" to Bush and "his tremendous contributions to our world". His body will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda for a public viewing from Monday until Wednesday morning.

Jeb Bush also saluted Sully.

To honor the former president, the worldwide nonprofit Points of Light, founded by Bush, invited the public to celebrate Bush by giving a day of service in his memory.

In lieu of flowers, the Bush family has requested that donations be made to the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B.
