Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman, posted an image of Sully next to Bush's casket on Sunday along with the caption, "Mission complete".

He will be buried at the presidential library in Texas, alongside his wife, Barbara Bush, who died seven months ago.

But Sully H.W. Bush has taken his final laps at the Bush Estate following the death of his owner, the 41st president of the United States.

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 longtime church in Houston. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, are scheduled to attend.

An arrival ceremony involving both the House and Senate will be held at 4:45 p.m. ET on Monday at the US Capitol, where Bush will lie in state in the rotunda until Wednesday morning.

George W. Bush posted on Instagram that Sully will be reassigned.

She also digs into personal issues, detailing a miscarriage, how she conceived daughters Malia, 20, and Sasha, 17, by in-vitro fertilisation, and marriage counseling.

The two-year-old labrador was assigned earlier this year as a service dog to Mr Bush who used a wheelchair in the last years of his life.

Former President George H.W. Bush will be laid to rest wearing a pair of his trademark colorful socks.

VetDogs says Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III, who is known for landing a damaged passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009.
