In case you missed it...
An 8-year-old chocolate lab named Boogie got loose in Evansville, Indiana last Friday, and was out all night. Apparently the next morning, he saw a bunch of people running, and decided to join in.
But it turned out to be a HALF-MARATHON. And Boogie didn't just run for a few minutes . . . he actually ended up FINISHING THE RACE, which was 13.1 MILES.
Once he crossed the finish line, animal control workers picked him up and took him to a shelter. His owner, a guy with the unfortunate name Jerry Butts, showed up on Tuesday to claim him, and had no idea that his dog was already a local celebrity.
Unfortunately, since Boogie didn't register for the race, they didn't record an official time for him. But his UNOFFICIAL time was 2 hours and 15 minutes, which was better than most of the HUMAN participants.
And even though he only ran 13 of the 13.1 miles, race organizers decided to give him a medal. Unfortunately for Boogie, this is the fourth time he's run off. So to calm him down, Jerry's going to have him neutered.
