This may make you squeal with happiness.

The San Francisco International Airport has introduced a pig as part of the airport's Wag Brigade therapy animal program.

Meet LiLou.

The Juliana-breed pig is first airport therapy pig in the United States, according to a news release from the San Francisco International Airport. 

“We have more than 300 dog, cat and rabbit volunteer teams, but LiLou is the first pig in our program,” said Dr. Jennifer Henley, SF SPCA Animal Assisted Therapy manager, in a statement. “It’s wonderful to witness the surprise and delight that LiLou brings to people during therapy visits.”
