They say if you find a job that you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
It appears that old dogs can learn new tricks, as one 8-year-old Border Collie has proven. K-9 Piper might not do flips, but he helps planes take off at Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan.
Piper helps maintain wildlife control at the airport by “shooing away” ducks, geese, owls, foxes and other creatures, his owner Brian Edwards told ABC News today. “Border Collies are born for this type of work, they’re herders,” he said.
Edwards has been an airport operations supervisor at Cherry Capital since 2008 and has been working with Piper at the airport for a little over a year.

And can I just say I love that they named this dog Piper – which is a type of small plane.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
