This article popped into my inbox just before Thanksgiving, but is still timely as we have just begun the holiday season. Cue the airport therapy dogs and resultant cuteness, please. Travelers can rest assured that these pups will make their experience much more relaxed. Although I don’t have travel anxiety, per se, I do have general anxiety. My mind never shuts up about all the terrible and awful things happening out in the world and if I dare to venture out there, I will experience them and my entire life will be turned over.
I have learned to manage the worry, but others are quite overwhelmed. This can erupt in a multitude of expressions that make travel uncomfortable for them as well as those around them. Therapy dogs de-escalate that formula for disaster.
The thought of certifying Sadie Sue Shagbottom has crossed my mind often. It would be a relief (or at least a distraction) from the worry day to day.

They’re like furry Xanax!
