United By Gregory Karp, Chicago Tribune

Traveling during busy seasons like spring break can be, well, ruff.

Dog-lovers who happen to be flying on United Airlines over the next few days can enjoy some quality petting time with five golden retriever comfort dogs on the B and C concourses of Terminal 1 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday through Monday.

United said the dogs will "offer travelers some comfort and provide a flier-friendly experience for dog lovers at the airport."

The event with dogs is a reprise of a similar one held a few months ago during the Christmas travel season. The Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs are named Luther, Ruthie, Tilly, Butter and Gracie.
