George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, is honored: 'Mission complete'

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump on Tuesday will offer their condolences to the "wonderful" Bush family during a private visit to the Blair House on Tuesday, the president announced by tweet.

The Wisconsin Republican was delivering remarks during a ceremony at the Capitol Rotunda where Bush will lie in state, an honor reserved for few.

The Bush family wants to keep services honoring former President George H.W. Bush about his life and accomplishments, avoiding the type of politics that were on display at the late Sen.

Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94, will be memorialized on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington.

Sully worked for Bush over the summer after former First Lady Barbara Bush died.

Former President George W. Bush will be among those eulogizing his late father on Wednesday, CNN reported Monday, adding that several other former presidents are expected to show up at the funeral.

Bush's body is lying in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda after being flown by a plane which often serves as Air Force One to a military base outside the capital from a cross-country trip earlier Monday from Houston, state of Texas.

The crew has been tasked by President Trump with carrying out "Special Air Mission 41".

A person familiar with the arrangements said the Bush team and Trump White House have been in close contact in planning an eventual funeral for the elder President Bush for months, marking a departure from what has been a long-running feud between President Trump and the Bush family.

The casket will then be transported by Union Pacific Railroad to Texas A&M in College Station for burial on Thursday.
