December 5 to honor the 41st President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush.
A plane carrying the late president from Washington arrived in Houston Wednesday evening and his flag-draped casket was taken to St. Martin's Episcopal Church, where his body was to lie in repose overnight so the public could file past and pay their respects. The yellow labrador's full name is Sully H.W. Bush.
Retired U.S. Sen. Bob Dole was among those who paid their respects to former President George H.W. Bush Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
"President Bush worked selflessly throughout his long life to bring about a world of justice and lasting peace".

"We said, 'Of course and also we have this locomotive that we would want to have obviously be part of it,"' Lange said. Bush also occasionally travelled by train in 1992, when he was defeated by Democrat Bill Clinton, including making Midwest stops aboard a train dubbed "The Spirit of America". He was then presented to the 41st president shortly after the death of his wife, Barbara.
The current president has mocked the elder Mr Bush for his "thousand points of light" call to volunteerism, challenged his son's legacy as president and trounced "low-energy" Jeb Bush in the Republican presidential primaries en route to office. "Could not be more grateful, especially for their commitment to our veterans". Sully, Bush's service dog, came by, too. Numerous dogs CBS New York saw on Monday grew up with Sully.
Like Bush, Dole is a World War II veteran.
"We introduced Sully to all the different pet dogs there on the compound, and all the family met the dog". And the Trumps visited members of the Bush family at the Blair House presidential guesthouse, where they are staying.
