A photo of the pooch is trending on Instagram.




A service dog that assisted President George H.W. Bush will fly with the presidential casket, CNN reports.

Sully H.W. Bush, a yellow labrador will accompany the president’s body from Houston to Washington. The former president, who died Friday, will be buried in Houston.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath posted a photo to Instagram of the dog lying in front of Bush’s flag-draped casket. The caption read: “Mission complete. .”
