Moving photo of President Bush's dog paying tribute

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

Facing the nation for the first time as its president, George H.W. Bush vowed to lead with humility, moral principle and a spirit of unity.

Sully has his own Instagram account; here he is shown "assisting with voting" as Mr Bush cast his ballot in last month's United States presidential mid-term election. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are to attend. As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The plans for Bush's funeral were all put into place before Trump was ever elected, sources tell CNN. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

Former President George H.W. Bush is remembered before the Pittsburgh Steelers play the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA, Dec 2, 2018. Former President Jimmy Carter also will be there. At the funeral for his wife, Barbara Bush, who passed eight months ago, Bush paid homage to his wife's favorite cause, literacy, by wearing socks decorated with stacks of colorful books.

Bush Senior died at on Friday at the age of 94.

Later, he will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.

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

"We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season", the Postal Service said in a statement. "He really does. He was a very special person". Bush will lie in state in the Capitol starting Monday and a service will be held at the Washington National Cathedral later in the week.

The two-year-old Sully has been at Bush's side since June, just weeks after the death of the president's wife Barbara, to whom he was married for 73 years.

After services in Washington, there will be another funeral in Houston on Thursday, followed by burial at the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

Bush's personal relationship with his Secret Service details will also be on full display throughout the week of events. The photo was shared on George W. Bush's Instagram page. The Supreme Court is delaying arguments by a day for the national day of mourning.

Bush had come to be known in recent years for his colorful and symbolic use of socks, wearing different pairs to express his mood or mark occasions.
