A US government plane has arrived in Texas to transport the body of former President George H.W. Bush to Washington for a state funeral.
The nation's 41st president died Friday at his home in Houston at 94.
Sully the dog will be travelling with the casket on the flight from Texas to Washington DC on Monday.
In a heartbreaking photo posted to Sully's Instagram account on Sunday, the yellow labrador - who was named after pilot Sully Sullenberger - is seen lying in front of Bush's American flag-draped casket with a forlorn look on his face. Then the former president will lie in state in the Capitol's rotunda starting at 5 p.m. Monday until Wednesday morning.
While the services are split between Washington and Texas, many in Kennebunkport, Maine also feel a personal connection to the late president.

Sully was chosen to provide "support and companionship" for Bush, VetDogs said in a written statement.
Instead, the Bush family has lined up four people to give eulogies - including Bush's son President George W. Bush.
He will now work as a service dog, assisting with therapy for wounded soldiers.
He will be buried at the presidential library in Texas, alongside his wife, Barbara Bush, who died seven months ago. "President Bush was such an fantastic man yet there is a sense of peace knowing that he and Barbara are together again and with Robin and just that it was time for him".
