BUSH INTERCONTINENTAL AIRPORT, Texas - They help out in hospitals and nursing homes, so why not airports? Therapy dogs bring their special holiday cheer to Bush Intercontinental Airport, and weary travelers are thrilled to see the pooches.

United Airlines has teamed up with Therapy Dogs Incorporated to help ease the stress holiday travelers might be feeling this time of year. These pups prove, nothing can smooth those pre-flight jitters better than a jolly dog in a Santa's cap. And puppy love isn't just for the adults. Kids are, also, distracted from all the confusion a busy airport can bring, when they get to pet one of these special dogs.
