A runaway puppy is being blamed for delaying several flights at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

The dog got away from her crate and decided it would have some fun on the runway.

The Port Authority said the 30-pound Rhodesian Ridgeback scampered around for about 10 minutes.

The agency finally had to pull the dog's owner from her flight to get the dog to come to her.
