Dog that crashed half-marathon gets medal

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - October 9, 2013

The chocolate Labrador retriever named Boogie ran most of the 13.1 miles in Saturday's Evansville event and then was taken to Animal Control.

Owner Jerry Butts tells a local newspaper that the 100-pound dog slipped his leash Friday night. It was his fourth escape.

Butts says Boogie now has a microchip and an appointment to be neutered.

Boogie finished the race in 2 hours, 15 minutes. That's better than more than half of the race's participants.
