He Couldn't Bear To Live Without His...


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.

To be fair, the article doesn't make absolutely clear whether Boogie actually died after the loss of his 'nads, or whether he died over the prospect of losing them. Still, you have to sympathize with Boogie, at least if you're a man.

Even at my advanced age, I'd probably kick the bucket too if someone did THAT to me.
