TSA officials at LaGuardia Airport noticed something unusual while screening luggage: A Chihuahua had stowed away in a suitcase. A family member came to retrieve the pup.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene with a public service announcement. If you have a tiny dog, make sure you know where your tiny dog is before you close your suitcase. TSA officials at LaGuardia Airport noticed something unusual when they were screening luggage last week. They investigated and discovered it was a Chihuahua. The little snake had stowed away in a hard-sided suitcase. The dog's owners had no idea. The furry trespasser was collared before takeoff. A family member came to retrieve the pup at the airport. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
