With ‘friendly” animals by our side, life is easier. They just sit around, say nothing and still say a lot. And one such chubby and fluffy animal is LiLou, who has been appointed at San Francisco International Airport to help passengers ease travel anxieties.

With a pilot’s cap on her head and toenails painted red, Lilou has multiple jobs in hand. The pig distracts the passengers, poses for selfies and most importantly, puts a smile on their faces.

Lilou’s owner Tatyana Danilova, explains how her presence at the airport spews good vibes among passengers. They, for a minute or two, forget what they are headed for and enjoy just being with her.

Lilou has been appointed at the airport as a part of the “Wag Brigade” program. The brigade is notorious for spreading cuteness at the premises and comprises of therapy animals who help passengers cope with travel anxiety.
