George H.W. Bush flies back to capital for final salute

As the nation mourns the death of George H.W. Bush, he will be honored at multiple services by former presidents, foreign dignitaries and friends.

Bush died Friday at his home in Houston at 94.

Sully, the service dog of former President George H.W. Bush, spent Sunday night lying before Bush's flag-draped casket in Houston.

The picture was posted on Twitter by Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath, along with the caption: "Mission complete".

Jeb Bush retweeted the image, adding "Sully has the watch".

Sully will reportedly be traveling with the former President's casket on his flight to Washington, D.C. on Monday.

Fox News host Bret Baier tweeted: "That is just a great pic of Sully the service dog who served @GeorgeHWBush Wow". He was portrayed by Tom Hanks in a movie about the incident.

The White House announced on Saturday that Trump and first lady Melania Trump will attend Wednesday's service at the National Cathedral. Sully had been trained by America's VetDogs, a nonprofit that provides service dogs.

Bush had a form of Parkinson's disease that caused slow movements and difficulty balancing, among other symptoms. Even before he arrived at his new home with Bush, Sully had his own Instagram page.

KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Sully will return to America's VetDogs in NY and then join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program. There, he will help wounded veterans and service members during their recovery.

Bush will then be returned to Houston for burial Thursday at his presidential library at Texas A&M University.
