Bush had come to be known in recent years for his colorful and symbolic use of socks, wearing different pairs to express his mood or mark occasions.

A heartbreaking photo was posted on the dog's social media account Sunday night showing him sleeping in front of the flag-draped casket of his late master, George H.W. Bush.

Bush family spokesperson Jim McGrath tweeted the picture of the socks Monday morning.

Sully is named after the airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009, saving all 155 passengers and crew on board.

Both Bush's wife Barbara, the former first lady who died in April, and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child, are laid to rest on the library's grounds.
