The holidays can get rough, especially if you're flying around and stuff.  If you're on the way to go see your in-laws in Albuquerque and you're stuck at the Albany airport because... winter... you're gonna need a way to remain calm and happy.  And, now  the canine ambassadors at Albany International Airport have a new recruit!  A 101-pound pot-bellied pig!

The pig, a.k.a. Bacon Bits, will take part in a ceremony today before he begins his patrol in the terminal.  His main job?  Keeping passengers calm and happy this holiday season!

Merry Christmas, happy traveling!
