Oh no, puppies are so much trouble (adorable, adorable trouble). A Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy named Byrdie escaped while being placed in a cage before a Delta flight at LaGuardia yesterday and started running and prancing around the tarmac. Airport authorities had to shut down the runway for 10 minutes, delaying three flights until she was caught—a mission which took 11 airport vehicles.
The really great part of all this, besides how cute it is when puppies cause large-scale trouble, is that according to the dog’s owner Austin Varner, Delta dealt with it quite well for once. Memphis’ The Commercial Appeal writes:
“They took me physically outside the plane and said, ‘Ma’am, your dog got loose and we’re trying to catch her,’” Varner said Wednesday after arriving in Memphis to attend a wedding in Arkansas this weekend. “The staff at LaGuardia and Delta were great. They kind of had detained her; they took me out there and she came right to me.”
