Dog days of summer: Airport therapy via wagging tail

In this photo taken Tuesday, May 21, 2013, Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUPs) volunteer Brian Valente, left, with his dog, Finn, greet the Bloom family with their 13-month-old son, Jacob, at the Los Angeles International Airport  terminal. The Los Angeles International Airport has 30 therapy dogs and is hoping to expand its program. The dogs are intended to take the stress out of travel: the crowds, long lines and terrorism concerns.
