George HW Bush begins final journey to Washington before burial in Texas

Sully is named after retired airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III, who gained fame when he landed a damaged passenger jet on New York's Hudson River in 2009.

The casket will be accompanied to Joint Base Andrews, outside Washington, by the 43rd president, Bush's son George W Bush; his wife, Laura; his brother Neil Bush and his family.

Former U.S. president George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, paid tribute to his master resting on the floor next to 41st president's flag-draped casket.

"It's pretty obvious as people look back, and as people are recollecting the Bush presidency, it looks a heck of a lot better than it did at the end of it", he said.

"A great joy to welcome home the newest member of our family, 'Sully, ' a lovely, and beautifully trained, lab from America's VetDogs".

Bush died Friday at his home in Houston at age 94.

In Texas, students, staff and visitors have been flocking to Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., remembered volunteering for Bush's 1988 presidential campaign, including handing out literature at ballgames and at '"the Rock County 4-H fair". The casket was flown in from Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, a Texas Air National Guard base, aboard an aircraft that often serves as Air Force One.

The body of former President George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol on Monday as his family and Americans mourn the loss of the 41st U.S. president. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to attend.

Sully, who had been in the former President's service since early this year, was assigned to him in his last days in a wheelchair.

"To be honest, at one point in history, ' he said, "it would not have been exceptional to have a president who obeyed and appreciated the norms of the American system and of the presidency, who was civil, who was kind to people and who rose above petty squabbles".
