As part of The Wag Brigade, an animal therapy team of 300 dogs, cats and rabbits, LiLou mingles with airport guests. Her "pet me" vest encourages interested travelers to interact with her. The matching blue tutu probably doesn't hurt for getting their attention.
LiLou holds the honor of being the first certified airport therapy pig in the world. She's a graduate of the San Francisco Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA), The Wag Program of certified therapy animals.
LiLou was chosen by the SPCA's program over other possible porkers for the airport greeter job because of her calm, friendly personality. Shouldn't that be pigonality? (Editor's note: No...no it shouldn't.)
In addition to cheering up passengers at the airport, LiLou also brightens up the stay of hospital patients. Who wouldn't feel at least a bit better after seeing such a cute animal wearing a nurse's cap that matches her painted toe nails!
The perky pig also visits retirement homes and even helps out the Department of Veterans Affairs. LiLou in her adorable outfits with all her piggy charm is probably something even the oldest senior citizens haven't seen the likes of before.
