Meet K-9 Piper - The Coolest Dog In The World!
February 21, 2016
A special border collie named K-9 Piper is being dubbed the coolest dog in the world - and it's easy to see why.
Piper is a volunteer Airport K-9, based in Traverse City, Michigan. He's one of only a handful of wildlife control K-9s that work full-time at an airport in the US.
K-9 Piper is tasked with keeping the runways and taxiways free of wildlife. Why? Simple, wildlife and planes don't mix! He responds to reported wildlife and conducts regular patrols throughout the day.
According to his website, chasing wildlife away comes pretty natural to this guy. The hardest part was getting him socialized to aircraft noise.
That's why he wears special gear to protect his eyes and ears when working close to aircraft.
USCG Air Station Traverse City's Motto is "Guardians of the Great Lakes", which makes K-9 Piper "Guardian of the Guardians". K-9 Piper is the station dog of Air Station Traverse City, but is not a Coast Guard Dog. Official Honorary status is in the works.
K-9 Piper loves the military and takes every chance he gets to thank those that serve. Oh, and trading patches is pretty cool too!
Looking like a seasoned vet in this National Guard Blackhawk.
K-9 Piper works four, ten-hour shifts a week on a rotating basis. But don't worry, he's not out running around for 10 hours straight. He gets plenty of breaks!
