These therapy dogs at Los Angeles International Airport look for love, not drugs.

Flying Is Stressful, indeed; it's also (contribution to) MASS MURDER, and
" [S]hort of setting fire to a forest, flying is the single worst thing an ordinary individual can do to cause climate-change. " -- Lisa Guy in "The Age of Stupid" (2009) (imho:) *highly recommendable*

For years now well-known: many more people are injured+killed by pollution from planes (same for cars, of course) than by accidents. And this is killed NOW, NOT taking into account long-term effects (like the imminent Environmental Holocaust)

Where these dogs can be the greatest of help is to comfort those who lost their flight, flight delayed for hours., etc. They would surely reduce a person's stress level.

That's a great idea.... especially if travelling with small kids .... it should help keep them from running wild!

What an awesome idea, they should have such PUP at every airport. Could they be retired police or other service dogs, trained for certain somethings? And now just put to further easy use..?

Delightful, therapy dogs often bring calm where there was no calm before, they know how to reach out and touch someone in their hour of need.

Well, Frack...what can one say...modern society itself contributes to pollution, death...shall we all leap backwards in time and return as cave dwellers? We could all just collectively hurl our PCs, Apples, cars, refrigerators, office complexes and all other high rises, modern medicine...the list is endless, we could simply hurl these out the window and go back in time.

The animals could then reclaim the abandoned cities, vines and wild grass would grow ceaselessly giving them something other than a concrete habitat. Realistically, since there are not enough caves in the world to house humanity perhaps we can simply do a better job of trying to end environmental pollution. A long haul, but I just don't see entire fleets of commercial airlines suddenly being retired or people going back to walking to their places of employment especially if they have a two hour commute to get there via car. Some people in Ottawa skate to work in the winter on the world longest skating canal but not everyone has that option either.

Great idea. Hope the dogs like it. Need a TV room with cats, so flyers can relax.

I wish they had these dogs at the airport the last time we flew. My husband hates flying and he was a basket case. (LOL)
