Bush received Sully in June from America's VetDogs, an organization that trains dogs to help war veterans and active military members. After an official ceremony, thousands of Americans are expected to file in to pay their final respects to Bush.

"I think he was one of the kindest, most generous men", visitor Marge Frazier said.
A family spokesman also said, "Mission complete". "My opinion of him went up seeing how he conducted himself as a statesman afterward".

"A attractive day In Texas - ´ceiling and visibility unlimited, ´ Mr. President", he wrote - using a phrase that Bush held dear from his time in the US Navy, and one used by his family and friends to discreetly spread the news of his death.

Former President George H.W. Bush's casket is traveling from Houston, Bush's hometown, to Washington, DC on Monday to lie in state in the United States Capitol.

"The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"

President George H.W. Bush will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol building this week.

The White House also extended an invitation to Bush's family to stay at Blair House the President's guest house while they are in Washington for events surrounding to his funeral.

At the signing ceremony, Bush paid tribute to his former rival who lost the use of an arm in World War II during a battle in Italy.

Sully is a highly trained service dog that began working with Bush over the summer, just a few months after the 41st president's wife Barbara Bush died in April. They waited in line nonetheless.

Bush's passing has led to an outpouring of remembrances for the humble and gentlemanly statesman, whose life and service was seen to stand in direct contrast to the vitriol and partisanship that has enveloped elected politics in recent years. "He seemed like a honest and decent man and you couldn't argue with his qualifications". He died Friday in Houston at age 94.

Shortly before leaving the service, he married his 19-year-old sweetheart, Barbara Pierce, and forged a 73-year union that was the longest presidential marriage in US history until her death.

Sully made headlines Sunday when President and Mrs. Once steadied, Dole saluted.

Sully will return to America's VetDogs in NY and then join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program, former President George W. Bush wrote in an Instagram post.

Those insults have been set aside, but the list of funeral service speakers marked the first time since Lyndon Johnson's death in 1973 that a sitting president was not tapped to eulogize a late president.
