Mr Bush, who died over the weekend aged 94, had a form of Parkinson's disease.

Sully joined Mr Bush in the summer, after former First Lady Barbara Bush died earlier, and will now join a new family. The casket will be loaded onto a plane during a departure ceremony expected to start at 10:30am CST and flown to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. His eldest son, former President George W.

President Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath shared a photo of Sully and the casket captioning it, "Mission complete".

Bush's body will lie in state in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol from 7:30 p.m. until December 5 at 8:45 a.m., with a guard of honor in attendance. His casket will be transported by motorcade on Thursday to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 5am NZT.

"The New York Times published a photo-essay titled "'I Love You, Too': "George Bush's Final Days" that recounts the last few days of a seemingly feeble, well-loved dying man surrounded by close friends and family in the comfort of an elegant suburban Houston home. After the hour-long service, a motorcade will transport Bush's casket to a train station north of Houston, near the global airport named after Bush.

The locomotive that will pull the train, No. 4141, was specially painted to resemble Air Force One in 2005 in Bush's honor, Union Pacific said on its website. The casket will be in a vehicle with Plexiglas windows to allow people to see it during the trip, according to family spokesman Jim McGrath.
