Sully went to work with Bush this summer after former first lady Barbara Bush passed away earlier this year.

In Washington, Bush will lie in state in the rotunda of the US Capitol tomorrow and Wednesday.

The USS George H.W. Bush, the last of 10 Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, was commissioned in 2009, and Bush himself attended its naming ceremony in 2002.

George Bush will receive a state funeral.

A photo posted of George H.W. Bush's service dog appearing to mourn beside the casket of his old master has left social media a little teary-eyed.

Four days of events for Bush, who died Friday at age 94, include a state funeral at Washington's National Cathedral and a private service at his long-time church in Houston.

The picture was tweeted by Mr Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, showing Sully next to Mr Bush's casket on Sunday along with the caption: "Mission complete". The train will take about 2½ hours to travel roughly 70 miles (113 kilometers) to the city of College Station, home to Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.
