"Mission complete. #Remembering41", the caption read.

The dog is named after the airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009, saving all 155 passengers and crew on board.

Sully will accompany Bush's casket on the Monday flight from Houston to Maryland, CNN reported, citing a source familiar with the plans.

"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41", the younger Bush wrote.

W Bush's service dog Sully guarding his casket has warmed hearts online.

Sully can perform a bevy of sophisticated commands, including answering the phone and fetching lost items as small as a credit card.

Washington to pay respects, bid farewell to George H.W. Bush

In this October 22, 2010 photo, Former President George H.W. Bush, left, and golfing great Arnold Palmer acknowledge the gallery at the Champions Tour golf tournament in The Woodlands, Texas. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, are scheduled to attend.

Bush received Sully in June from America's VetDogs, a nonprofit organization.

He said Bush was the first president he ever voted for and was "the first president to teach me and many of us that in a democracy sometimes you fall short", and how you handle that, "is just as important as how you win".

McGrath and the presidential library didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

He was 94. Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, will lie in state beneath the soaring U.S. Capitol rotunda for a ceremony and public visitation from Monday through Wednesday. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral. Wednesday has been designated by President Trump as a national day of mourning, and most federal agencies will be closed with federal workers given the day off. 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 41st president of the United States, who lived longer than any of his predecessors and possessed one of the most impressive resumes in American political history, died peacefully at his home in Houston, according to a source close to the family.
