Boogie — a 100-pound, 8-year-old chocolate Labrador — was awarded a medal on Oct. 7, 2013, for finishing the Evansville (Ind.) Half Marathon ahead of 1,128 of the race's registered human participants. It was not a planned run, however. Owner Jerry Butts says Boogie escaped from him the night before the event and turned up at a gas station that was also serving as the starting line for the half-marathon. When the runners took off, Boogie ran with them, and he eventually completed the 13.1-mile race in two hours and 15 minutes, according to the Evansville Courier-Press. Sadly, Boogie passed away on Oct. 16, just more than a week after earning his medal. According to WFIE in Evansville, Boogie’s owners wrote on Facebook that the dog suffered a heart attack.
