Meet Evansville Regional Airport's Therapy Dog Crypto

If I had a dollar for every time one of us here at work said we really need a dog to cuddle, I wouldn't need to work. Sadly, we aren't allowed to bring our pups to work, but the next time you fly out of Evansville Regional Airport, you might get a few cuddles from Crypto. He's expected to be in service in early 2023.
