  • Photo of George HW Bush's service dog mourning at his casket pulls the internet's heartstrings

Sully became a part of the Bush family in June after being trained by the New York-based nonprofit organization America's VetDogs, which provides service dogs for disabled service members and first responders.

Former President George H.W. Bush will be eulogized by his son, former President George W. Bush, along with a mix of family and friends on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral, the most high-profile event in a week of proceedings that will remember the remarkable life of the president who died on Friday at 94.

The 41st U.S. president died at his Houston home on Friday, aged 94, and the image of Sully next to the flag-draped casket was accompanied by the caption: "Mission complete".

The casket carrying the body of George HW Bush is set to arrive in Washington on Monday afternoon, aboard the U.S. military plane commonly known as Air Force One.

US traders also observed a moment of silence before markets opened on Monday in honor of Bush.

Barack Obama, who served as President from 2009 to 2017, and Bill Clinton, who took over from Mr Bush in 1993 and served until 2001, are expected to be at the service alongside George W Bush (01-09).

He will be laid to rest alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April, and Robin Bush, the daughter who died of leukemia at age 3.

According to Jim McGrath, the Bush family spokesman, Bush will be buried in socks that pay tribute to the years he spent as a naval aviator in World War II.

"It's pretty obvious as people look back, and as people are recollecting the Bush presidency, it looks a heck of a lot better than it did at the end of it", he said. The casket will return to Texas for a funeral Thursday afternoon at his presidential library in College Station. "And the contrast between George H.W. Bush and the current president could not be more stark".
