    I love the picture of Piper that's a close up with the goggles and jacket on. Just a really rad picture!

    That's so badass. I love that they found a low-tech solution to keeping critters off the runway.

    My dog would love that job so much!

    Great solution. Dog loves it, airplanes avoid hits, and birds aren't killed.

    Piper was the name of one of my doggies.

    RIP Piper

    Posted by Piper's handler Brian Edwards:
    “Friends
    It is with the ultimate sadness I must report the passing of my best friend and love of my life.
    Piper passed away tonight peacefully in my arms after fighting a year-long battle with prostate cancer. He fought valiantly, and we did everything we could, but sometimes life just has to take its course.
    Today, Piper enjoyed a pain-free day, filled with love from family and friends, mostly his fellow airport employees. He played soccer, got some much deserved butt scratches and yes, he chased away one last snowy owl as he sailed into the night.”
