A photo of George H.W. Bush's service dog looking sad as it lay on the floor in front of his flag draped coffin has gone viral.
That's what the caption read for a touching photo of former president George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, next to the casket of his owner.
Sully the dog will be travelling with the casket on the flight from Texas to Washington DC on Monday.
On Wednesday, family and friends will gather at the National Cathedral in D.C., for an 11 a.m. ET memorial service.
The picture was posted on Twitter by Bush's longtime aide and friend, Jim McGrath.

Sully 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.
The couple had six children, including George W. Bush, who would become the nation's 43rd president in 2000.
Fox News host Bret Baier tweeted: "That is just a great pic of Sully the service dog who served @GeorgeHWBush Wow".
It wasn't a widely-known fact until he developed a form of Parkinson's disease and relied on a wheelchair.
