President George H.W. Bush's spokesman posted a photo to Twitter on Sunday night of the late president's service dog lying in front of a flag-draped casket.

"The 41st president died late Friday at his Houston home at age 94".

The socks feature a formation of jets, which are meant to honor his lifetime of service that started when he became a naval aviator at 18 years old.

Both Bush's wife Barbara, the former first lady who died in April, and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child, are laid to rest on the library's grounds.

"He added: "A lovely day In Texas - 'ceiling and visibility unlimited, ' Mr. President".

KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Sully will return to America's VetDogs in NY and then join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program.

Mr. Bush was a decorated World War II fighter pilot who dedicated his life to public service as a congressman, ambassador, Central Intelligence Agency director, vice president and the 41st president, but the AP's tweet focused on his defeats.

President Bush will be given a state funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. He will lie in state in D.C. through Wednesday.

It appears that Sully and Bush's connection was near instantaneous, with both the former president and the pup's social media accounts sharing pics of their time together.
