Former President George H.W. Bush's service dog has honored his master with his own tribute in front of the late leader's flag-draped casket.

Bush is the first president to lie in state since Gerald Ford, following his death in 2006. Presidents are traditionally asked to eulogize presidents who have died - and in past state events like this, that has been the case - but the Bush family is unlike any other and has another president in the family who will fill that role. "It was truly an honor to have provided service dog Sully to be by the president's side for the past several months". For the task of transporting Bush's body on Monday, the plane has been renamed Special Air Mission 41, the number being a reference to Bush's place in the roster of America's presidents.

The funeral at the Washington National Cathedral, set to be attended by a wide array of former presidents and politicians, including Donald Trump, will last 90 minutes.

Bush served as Central Intelligence Agency director when Carter first ran for president 1976.

Trump has said he and wife Melania will attend.

President Bush will be interred next to his wife Barbara, and his daughter Robin.

Bush's remains will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda from Monday night until Wednesday. Dozens of foreign leaders and United States luminaries are expected.

Trump, who has not always uttered kind words about the Bush family, offered nothing but praise in the hours after the former president's death was announced.

According to Sully's Instagram account, he also spent a lot of time frolicking on the beach and playing fetch.

Members of the family, including children and grandchildren, will be taking part in each service.

Vice President Pence, remembering Bush's service as a naval aviator in World War II and his life in public service, said "he never failed to answer the call to serve his country". USA traders also observed a moment of silence before markets opened on Monday in honor of Bush.

Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B.

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.
