Agents find stowaway Chihuahua in checked bag at LaGuardia

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) This Chihuahua could be headed to the dog house.

Transportation Security Administration officers say a woman's 7-year-old Chihuahua sneaked into her suitcase and triggered a luggage screening alert at New York's LaGuardia Airport last week.

TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says the black, hard-sided suitcase was in a checked-baggage area Tuesday when an unknown-contents alarm indicated an officer should inspect the case.

Those unknown contents proved to be her beige and tan Chihuahua.

TSA says the owner had no idea that her little dog had crawled in and curled up while she was packing for a flight to Los Angeles.

The woman's husband came to the airport and took the dog home.
