National day of mourning: What’s open and what’s closed on Wednesday

Sully The Service Dog Arrives To View Owner George H.W. Bush's Casket

Like Bush, Dole is also a World War II veteran. An assistant helped keep Dole steady on his feet, according to video from C-SPAN.

He will then join Walter Reed Military Medical Center working with wounded USA military veterans. His eldest son, former President George W. Bush, and others from the family traveled on the flight from Houston.

If a service dog is with their owner for a long time, it's common for them to retire but still remain a part of the family even if they're no longer performing the services they were trained to do.

Following the funeral at St. Martin's, a train will carry his remains about 80 miles (130 km) northwest to College Station, Texas, where he will be laid to rest at his presidential library.

Mr Trump has ordered the federal government closed for a national day of mourning while flags on public buildings are flying at half-mast for 30 days.

Shortly before leaving the service, he married 19-year-old Barbara Pierce, and forged the longest presidential marriage in United States history.

Those close to the service dog say for now Sully appears lonely, loyal to the USA leader for whom he had unwavering allegiance.
