George HW Bush's Service Dog Sully Pays Respects To The Late President

A visibly emotional Dole was wheeled into the Capitol rotunda where Bush's body lie in state.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, his casket will be taken to the National Cathedral for a funeral. "The Prince will be representing Her Majesty The Queen". The yellow labrador's full name is Sully H.W. Bush.

The 41st President of the United States died on November 30, 2018.

Bush died Friday at the age of 94, just months after his lifelong sweetheart, wife Barbara, died. "George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for".

Soon after he reached the height of his political popularity following the liberation of Kuwait, with public approval ratings that are the envy of today's politicians, the USA economy began to sour and voters began to believe that Mr Bush, never a great communicator - something even he acknowledged - was out of touch with ordinary people.

Upon his death, Queen Elizabeth II also released a statement.

George W. and Laura Bush entered first, and the former president put his hand on the flag-draped casket holding the remains of his father.

Bush, the 41st U.S. president, was remembered as a patrician figure who represents a bygone era of bipartisan civility in American politics. "President Bush was a great friend and ally of the United Kingdom".

Like Bush, Dole is a military veteran. Prince Philip and I remember our days in Texas in 1991 with great fondness.

Ahead of Wednesday's state funeral - where Trump will reportedly sit in the front row, but not deliver a eulogy - the president tweeted he would visit the "wonderful Bush family" at the presidential guest residence Blair House across from the White House.

Those close to the service dog say for now Sully appears lonely, loyal to the USA leader for whom he had unwavering allegiance. Their son, Prince Charles, did as well.
