Dog in Indiana wanders off, runs half marathon
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A dog in Indiana wandered away from home and hours later became an Internet sensation.
It all started when the dog, named Boogie, met up with the runners at the start of a half-marathon in Evansville.
When the starting gun went off, so did Boogie, and he ran the whole way.
But when he crossed the finish line, no one could figure out who he belonged to, so police sent out an alert, which quickly spread on Facebook.
Boogie's owner had no clue about his big day--that is, until he went looking for him at a local animal shelter.
That's when he learned Boogie is now the world's first dog to finish a half-marathon without the help of a human.
