Dog becomes Internet sensation at Michigan airport

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A dog has become an Internet sensation after video of him working went viral.

The seven-year-old border collie chases birds and animals off the runways at a Michigan airport. He's being called the "coolest dog ever" because of his outfit. 

Piper wears goggles, earmuffs and a safety vest.

"He's very well equipped," said Brian Edwards, Piper's owner. "The specs are to protect his eyes. They're sunglasses, first and foremost."

"The earmuffs obviously are for sound when he's close to aircraft, and the vest is so I can lift him up and do all sorts of cool things with him," he added.

The dog doesn't get a paycheck for his services, but he is rewarded with plenty of treats.
