George H.W. Bush Service Dog Sully to Join Walter Reed Hospital

George H.W. Bush Service Dog Sully to Join Walter Reed Hospital

Former president George W. Bush, the eldest of the four Bush sons, and his wife Laura, along with brother Neil Bush and his family, will accompany their father's body to Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, said family spokesperson Jim McGrath.

The president's casket will depart by railroad on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. CT and arrive at Texas A&M University in College Station, home to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, at 3:45 p.m. "And the contrast between George H.W. Bush and the current president could not be more stark".

The photo touched the hearts of many Twitter users. Wrote another, "Truly a lovely and heartbreaking moment".

Mr Bush, who served as the 41st United States president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94. Sully will accompany Bush's casket on its flight to Washington on December 3. CNET sister site CBS News is covering the memorial events live.

Sully, a yellow labrador, is loved by the Bushes and thousands of fans who follow an instagram account chronicling his time helping the former president during daily life.

"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41", the younger Bush wrote. His casket will be transported by motorcade Wednesday morning to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m. EST.




Bush's casket is set to arrive in Washington on Monday afternoon aboard the USA military airplane that's more commonly recognized as Air Force One.

Bush is shown with his son George W. Bush, who would later become USA president, and wife Barbara Bush in Rye, N.Y., in 1955.

The 41st President will be carried to his final rest wearing socks that pay tribute to his lifetime of service, starting as an 18 year-old naval aviator in war. The number is a reference to Bush's place in the roster of America's presidents.

Dukakis, 85, blames himself for his election loss as the Democratic nominee, saying he didn't respond aggressively to a Bush campaign ad featuring a convicted murderer named Willie Horton who raped a woman and stabbed her partner while out of prison on a MA furlough program.

Donald Trump has ordered the federal government closed on Wednesday for a national day of mourning.
