To help airport passengers deal with anxiety San Francisco airport has hired the first therapy Pig.
For some positive and not so serious themes.
Last year for the San Francisco airport ended with something really uncommon – they introduced the first travel anxiety pig. Her name is LiLou and she is now a proud member of SFO Wag brigade, that has been in the airport since 2013.
The wag brigade consists of 300 cats, dogs and rabbits and now their newest member LiLou the pig! They are all Certified Animal Assistant therapy animals and their main purpose is to make traveling a little bit less anxious for everybody.
LiLou, like the rest of the therapy animals wear a “Pet me” vest to encourage people to pet them. She is really pleased to show of her tricks like standing up on her back hooves, twirling, waving her snot as a way of saying hello and even playing her toy piano.
“I can see that she is happy showing off her tricks and getting her praise,” said LiLou’s owner, Tatyana Danilova. “It also brings positive emotions to me seeing that we can do something good for the community and bring more smiles in some unconventional way.”
She also wears various of costumes, to make her look even better and to finish off her look her nails are done to perfection!
