President George H.W. Bush's spokesman posted a photo to Twitter on Sunday night of the late president's service dog lying in front of a flag-draped casket.

"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 be brought to 41", the 43rg president wrote.

Sully the dog will be travelling with the casket on the flight from Texas to Washington DC on Monday.

Sully will make the journey with his last master to Washington D.C. on Monday where Bush will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol until Wednesday, Business Insider reported.

While the services are split between Washington and Texas, many in Kennebunkport, Maine also feel a personal connection to the late president.

A highly trained dog, Sully can perform a number of commands, including opening doors and fetching items such as the phone when it rings.

A memorial service for President Bush will be conducted at St. Martin's Episcopal Church.

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

He died aged 94 in Houston, Texas. Even after Bush died, though, Sully still looked out for his appointee, whom he began to serve in June, just months after Bush's wife, Barbara Bush, died in April.
