George HW Bush's final journey to the Capitol

H.W. Bush arrives on the South Lawn of White House in Washington

George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush were noted dog lovers.

After the service, members carried the casket to Air Force One, and George W. Bush and other family members and former staffers of Bush 41 boarded the aircraft for the trip to Washington and the beginning of four days of national tribute to the late president. He will be honored during several private and public events in Houston and Washington before he is buried in Texas next to his wife, Barbara, and their young daughter Robin, who died in 1953.

Millie was famously referenced during the 1992 presidential campaign, when Bush said, of Bill Clinton and Al Gore, "My dog Millie knows more about foreign affairs than these two bozos". As people remembered the 41st president of the United States, author Stephen King couldn't help but see the stark comparison between Bush 41 and current President Donald Trump.
