Puppy on Runway Delays Flights at La Guardia 4/25/2012

A new breed of traveler brought a runway at LaGuardia Airport to a halt Wednesday. The Delta Air Lines customer named Byrdie, a 30-pound Rhodesian ridgeback puppy, escaped from her crate as she was being loaded into a plane and sent officials on a 10-minute chase. The young pooch's midmorning escapade delayed several flights, said Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico, adding that Byrdie escaped at about 10:20 a.m., just before her flight to Memphis was set to leave.
