George HW Bush's service dog yellow lab Sully mourning goes viral

The casket will then be transported to the cathedral for the funeral service - the fourth there of a former president.

Bush's casket will then be transported by motorcade to the presidential library, where he will be buried at the gated family plot near his wife and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3.

Declaring a national day of mourning for December 5 - when the federal government and New York Stock Exchange will close in Mr Bush's honour - President Trump also signalled his respect by calling off a press conference planned at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires.

Presidents are traditionally asked to eulogize presidents who have died - and in past state events like this, that has been the case - but the Bush family is unlike any other and has another president in the family who will fill that role.

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.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has paid a glowing tribute to his "dear friend" as he joined a long list of celebrities who have saluted former president George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday, aged 94.

His passing ushers in almost a week of remembrances and tributes in Washington, where Bush will lie in state at the US Capitol following a ceremony there Monday evening (Tuesday NZT). Bush will lie in repose at the St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston from 7:45 p.m. ET Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday, and a second memorial service will be held Thursday morning at the church, starting at 11 a.m.

Along with his son, George H.W. Bush will be eulogized by former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, whose time in power overlapped with Bush, former US Sen. Bush hadn't left his bed in the past three or four days and also hadn't been eating. He suffered from a form of Parkinson's disease and was hospitalised periodically in recent years for pneumonia.

"I'm a sock man", he told his granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager during a 2012 Today Show segment.

"He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family", Trump said Saturday while in Argentina. Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after 2½ years.

Bush turned his attention to politics in the 1960s, being elected to his first of two terms in Congress in 1967.

"By the time he got back here to Houston from his summer in Kennebunkport, I think he was pretty much ready to go".

"And 41 said, 'I love you, too, ' and those were the last words that he ever spoke", Baker said.

Speaking to the media, America's VetDogs said Sully will stay at their NY headquarters over the festive season and then undergo physical and occupational therapy.
