Dog who crashed half marathon dies 10 days later

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A dog that became an Internet sensation after crashing an Indiana half marathon has died just a week after receiving a medal for completing the race.

The 100-pound chocolate Labrador retriever named Boogie ran most of the 13.1 miles in the Oct. 5 Evansville event after escaping his leash the night before. Owner Jerry Butts made an appointment for the dog to be neutered after the race to curb his wandering ways.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that Boogie died Tuesday of an apparent heart attack. He was 10.

Butts says on his Facebook page that the dog was a rascal and was “not being too shy to soak up the glory.”

Boogie finished the race in 2 hours, 15 minutes.
