Sully The Service Dog Arrives To View Owner George H.W. Bush's Casket

Donald Trump will attend the funeral of former U.S. president George H W Bush on Wednesday, capping days of public praise for the Bush family and ending a feud that has simmered at the heart of the Republican Party for years.

President Donald Trump had no speaking role during the Episcopalian service, a break from recent tradition and in accordance with George H.W. Bush's wishes. Brad Hibbard was among those who brought Sully to the Bush's summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, last June, offering the president companionship and support during his time of grief.

Trump has said some rather negative things about the Clintons and the Obamas in the past. Dignitaries and members of the public have been lining up to pay their respects at Bush's casket in the Rotunda, open until Wednesday's funeral.

George W. Bush greeted Melania Trump with a kiss outside Blair House.

Bush's beloved service dog, Sully, faithfully joined his companion on his final journey to Washington, DC and on Tuesday sat at attention a few moments next to the casket as the President lay in state at the U.S. Capitol rotunda.

Kansas native and former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole has saluted President George H.W. Bush at the casket of the late president. The others are Alan Simpson, the former senator and acerbic wit from Wyoming; Brian Mulroney, the former Canadian prime minister who also gave a eulogy for Ronald Reagan; and presidential historian Jon Meacham.

As a specially-trained service dog, Sully was able to assist Bush, who was suffering from Parkinson's in his later years, by opening doors and being able to get help, should the former president have needed it.

"I'm just here to pay my respects", said Jane Hernandez, a retired doctor.

Michelle Obama has once called George Bush her "partner in crime" at every major event where all former resident of the White House gather to highlight the importance of their friendship for her. Abraham Lincoln's funeral train was the first, in 1865. Bush also occasionally travelled by train in 1992, when he was defeated by Democrat Bill Clinton, including making Midwest stops aboard a train dubbed "The Spirit of America".

The New York Stock and NASDAQ will be closed for the day.
