Washington (CNN)Sully H.W. Bush, a yellow Labrador service dog who worked with the late former President George H.W. Bush, will be traveling with Bush's casket on his flight to Washington, DC, according to a source familiar with the plans. Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman, posted an image of Sully next to Bush's casket on Sunday along with the caption, "Mission complete."

Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III, who became famous for landing a damaged passenger jet on the Hudson River and saving all 155 passengers and crew in 2009. A highly trained service dog, Sully will now go back into service to help other veterans and is going to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, former President George W. Bush wrote in an Instagram post.

"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41," Bush wrote.

They really are remarkable beings. The one in our house is a great blessing to my family, too.

My daughter once asked me if I thought Dogs could feel like people. I thought for a minute and said, they feel love, sadness, loss, and everything we do. Just not as complicated is all, and that makes them very special creatures worthy of our love and protection. There is no loyalty like that of a Dog. That's why as man every time I was called a Dog I smiled and said why thank you. When asked why I explained:
You mean loyal to the death? Grateful for the most basic of things? Asking only for food, water and a place to sleep? Unconditional love? Willing to die for you? Better than most people, wouldn't ya' say?

Dog is God spelled backwards!

I just had to put my beautiful lab mix down after 12 years due to cancer. I believe she kept me from serious depression when I was laid off 2009 and out of work for three years. I couldn’t have made it without her. She made me get up every day to take her for a walk and play with her in the park – gave me purpose. Also, when I was younger I suffered badly from migraines and I had a dog who sensed when I was ill and she was so careful when she would crawl up on the bed and lay down with me. Such a comfort!

Dogs are amazing creatures, we are blessed to have them.

Check out the stray who recently found his way to my ranch. He's been here less than a week.

Yeah, me to, and I have a rep in the family of being an unemotional hardass. (I still miss our 17 year-old Kitty, Billi, who passed in June)

My four-legged friends are close to me. My two corgi's (Welsh plural = Corgun) are indeed a blessing.

There are so many stories of the remarkable things that dogs have done, I really believe they have a higher ability of thought and emotions than most people give them credit for.

I also have a gorgeous black cat that was Sugar’s best bud, although I am not really a cat person (don’t tell that to Levi.) I am just about to the point that I am ready to get another dog – I have mourned Sugar (been seven months) and really miss that companionship. Pets give so much to our lives.

People believe animals, dogs, can't talk.

In the sense that they can't produce audible messages that we recognize as speech, that is true.

If you watch them, and understand visual cues ('body language'), they speak volumes.

I absolutely believe that! And they have a sixth sense of some sort. My folks had a dog that just loved my brother. They knew when he was coming to visit because Traveler would get excited and start standing at the door looking out the glass partition. You couldn’t get him to leave. In about 30 minutes or so, my brother would drive down the block.

I have read that dogs, not chimps or any other primate, are the sole animals that read human facial expressions.

Sweet! A baller!

We are kept by two wirehair Dachsies. We are grateful they let us serve them....

Our Pepper was my avatar until we had to put her away due to a medical issue. Bailey has taken up the slack. Both dogs have been amazingly communicative. Loyal to the end.
