A little black dog made it into and out of Bob Hope Airport quickly Thursday morning — without passing through security.
Officials said a member of the airport's maintenance crew spotted the small dog with long black fur racing along near the runway about 7 a.m. The dog was seen near the airport's fuel field, on the northeast side of the runway.
Within minutes, the dog had squeezed under a fence or escaped when a gate was opened. It bolted onto San Fernando Road, according to airport spokeswoman Lucy Burghdorf.
