Runaway Poodle Escapes Aiport Kennel

Planes can get stuck on airport runways for many reasons — including a poodle on the run. Choochy evaded authorities at Boston's Logan International Airport for 17 hours. She escaped her kennel Saturday as it was being unloaded after a flight from Detroit. The dog ran in circles, chased by several vans, and delayed at least eight flights. She finally was caught Sunday and was reunited with her family.

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Add to the many reasons planes can get stuck on airport runways, a poodle on the run. That would be Choochy. She led a 17-hour chase at Boston's Logan Airport after breaking out of her kennel as it was being unloaded. The poodle ran in circles chased by several airport vans and state police, forcing eight flights to sit on the tarmac. Choochy was finally caught Sunday, a little tired, and reunited with her family. This is Morning Edition.
