MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) -Passengers should take it literally when hearing that Memphis International Airport has gone to the dogs. Four-legged friends greeted people flying in and out of Memphis International Airport Friday.

For the past four months, therapy dogs Teeva, Tessa, and Boss have been greeting any and all passengers the best way they know how.

"We've seen soldier going to Afghanistan, the wife is crying ... We've seen kids going to Disney all up and excited, a woman that had been away from her dog for three months— she had been in Germany," said Anne Weiss with West Tennessee Therapy Dogs.

The dogs put people at ease because flying can be stressful for passengers with delays, cancellations, and long flights overseas.

"It's really dependent upon the volunteer schedules, but we're trying to get them here as much as possible because they're very popular," said Glen Thomas Memphis, Shelby County Airport Authority.
