Local artist Lorna Watt and a team of volunteers are taking to the streets toyarn bomb 30 Third Avenue trees. Some of Watt’s yarn bombedendeavors included knitting cozysocks for mailboxes in front of thepost office, turning a B Street magno-lia tree into a giant squid, revampingold parking meters and covering graf-fiti ridden utility boxes. “We like to think of public objects,and imagine how we can transformthem in a new way,” Watt said.What started out as a sneaky guerril-la-style hobby, Watt’s creative adorn-ment of public objects in the area ledthe Downtown San Mateo Associationto reach out and join in the fun, Wattsaid. In April, she was asked to becomethe DSMA’s artist in residence andcommissioned to provide locals andvisitors with eye-catching public art,Watt said.“It’s so great to have [Watt] as ourartist in residence, she’s makingmagic in downtown,” said NancyBush, president of the DSMAboard of directors.Watt and local volunteers beganinstalling the colorful knitted tree-sweaters on Monday and will be con-tinuing through 11 a.m. today. She andher sister Jill Watt used a loom to knitabout 40 miles of yarn donated by theUnited American Bank, Watt said.

Travel at San Francisco InternationalAirport just got a lot more cuddly thanks toa team of therapy dogs who began interact-ing with passengers at the Bay Area’sbusiest airport yesterday. The Wag Brigade, a new branch of theSan Francisco SPCA’s Animal AssistedTherapy Program, brings nine certifiedtherapy dogs and their volunteer owners toSFO’s check-in areas, terminals and gatesto spread a little four-legged affection topassengers feeling the stress of holidaytravel.Petting a dog for just a couple of minuteshas been proven to lower a person’s heartrate, relieve anxiety and reduce stress,according to the SPCA.The three therapy dogs who launchedSFO’s Wag Brigade have been regular visi-tors to Bay Area hospitals, rehabilitationcenters and youth facilities.“These are pooches that have very highcredentials,” SFO spokesman Doug Yakelsaid.“Jenna,” a 6-year-old white curly-hairedcockapoo whose full name is “Lady JennaBarbara,” frequently visits hospitals tosnuggle with patients, and loves children,according to her owner, Fabio Giuntarelli.“She’s very cuddly,” Giuntarelli said.“She has a good, mellow temperament andI want to share her qualities with people.”During a test visit through SFO onMonday, Giuntarelli said several passen-gers flocked to Jenna for a few quick pats,some of them saying that they missed theirown dogs at home.“She’s a total babe magnet,” he said.Another member of the Wag Brigadenamed “Toby,” a lanky 3-year-old golden-doodle with a broad smile, wasn’t a perfectfit for hospital visits because he occasion-ally drooled on patients, according toowner Shari Marks.However, Toby has become a big favoriteamong students of all ages at Bay Areaschools, Marks said. This week, he’sscheduled to go to the California Collegeof the Arts to interact with students who arestudying for finals.“He’s totally mellow and incredibly well-trained,” Marks said with Toby panting ather side. “The kids love him.”At least one of the Wag Brigade dogs willbe touring the airport seven days a weekduring peak times through the holidays,Yakel said.The dogs vary in size, but each will bewearing a gray vest that says “Pet Me!” andhas the dog’s name on the back.If the Wag Brigade program goes well,there is a possibility that it will continueafter the holidays, Yakel said.“The goal is to have it running all year,”he said.
