Things to know about George H.W. Bush funeral services

"We've deleted a tweet and revised a story on the death of President George H.W. Bush because the tweet and the opening of the story referenced his 1992 electoral defeat and omitted his WWII service", said the AP's Sunday tweet.

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

Sully the dog will be travelling with the casket on the flight from Texas to Washington DC on Monday.

The 41st president will lie in state at the United States Capitol this week.

While the services are split between Washington and Texas, many in Kennebunkport, Maine also feel a personal connection to the late president.


Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B.

X-Men actress Olivia Munn shared the photo, saying: "President George H.W. Bush". America's VetDogs is a charity that provides service dogs to veterans, active-duty service members and first responders with disabilities.

- He was trained through the prison puppy program, in which inmates raise future service dogs until the dog is about 15 months old.

Sully went to work with Bush this summer after former first lady Barbara Bush passed away earlier this year.

Not all U.S. presidents have been fond of dogs though: John F Kennedy was allergic to dogs, and Donald Trump does not have one.
