Meet Lilou the Therapy Pig!

Another only-in-California moment.

Meet lovely Lilou the Pig.  The Therapy Pig, that is.

San Francisco International Airport already has trained therapy pets that roam the airport comforting airport travelers and employees, 365 days a year.  The airport has dogs, cats, even rabbits.  And now a cuter than cute Juliana-breed pig, Lilou.

That's right.  Lilou, a trained Therapy Pig.

Lilou is a good-sized girl with lovely manicured "nails" (typically painted bright red), and the cutest outfits and accessories you could imagine.

Check out the photos on Lilou's Instagram account.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Lilou works 1 day a month at SFO, in addition to providing animal therapy services at other locations.  But gosh darn, the airport will not disclose Lilou's schedule, as they want to keep her appearances a surprise.  Lilou enjoys greeting airport travelers and employees, getting petted, and eating treats.

You can learn more about Lilou's arrival at SFO here and here.

Happy Holidays, Lilou!

  1. I hope people don't start getting pigs for pet because she is so cute.

    1. Agree. that happens when dogs are featured in movies, the breed becomes very popular, with an increase in animal shelter populations due to inexperienced dog purchasers.

  2. How long before a Muslim group protests the pig at the airport?

    1. Good point. Had not thought about that, wonder if the airport has?

  3. Bacon! Give me the Bacon!

  4. I would like to see the expressions on faces when people see Lilou at the airport.

  5. Those miniature pigs don't stay very miniature.
