1. A therapy pig is making life better for travelers in San Francisco

Travelers making their way through San Francisco International Airport are going hog wild for LiLou, the world's first airport therapy pig. She makes her way around Terminal 4 about once a month, playing with kids and bringing smiles to stressed out passengers. Her owner, Tatyana Danilova, told Good Morning America that she announces on Instagram when LiLou is going to be at the airport, and one woman even switched her flight so she could meet her. "It's kind of like the lottery," she said. "People get so excited if they're going to be traveling that day." LiLou, who also visits schools and hospitals, may be a pig, but the airport has made her a member of the Wag Brigade, which brings trained therapy dogs to the different terminals.
