Dog Runs Half Marathon By Mistake After being Let Out To Potty, Finishes 7th

 I love the fact that they gave the dog a medal,

Goes out to pee, comes back with a medal


During the Elkmont Trackless Train Half Marathon in Canada, runners were joined by a dog who had been let loose for a potty break.


The adorable Bloodhound, named Ludivine, had managed to form his escape by crawling under the garden fence, where he then ran towards the race’s start. This random adventure went quite well for Ludivine, who finished seventh in the race – even after stopping at the two-mile mark so as to smell a dead rabbit. The dog even ran off the track several times, as if he was going to play with a herd of cows.



Incredibly, he managed to get a great time and place after crossing the road in just an hour and a half, while still managing to have a lot of fun. Elkmont’s hound Half‘s official Facebook page posted pictures of the adorable Ludivine participating in the half-marathon. Ludivine was given a medal for her efforts, something that owner, 41-year-old April Hamlin, was pleased with her pet’s impressive finish.


She spoke to Runner’s World and said, “All I did was open the door, and she or he ran the race on her own accord.” “My first reaction was that I used to be embarrassed and worried that she had possibly gotten within the way of the opposite runners. She’s laid back and friendly, so I can’t believe she ran the entire half marathon because she’s actually really lazy,” Hamlin added.



Jim Clemens, who finished fourth in the half marathon, said, “Every time I assumed she had dropped off to travel back home, I might hear her returning up to me She or he will run from me to the two leaders. She would escape to romp through the streams and into yards to smell around for a short time .” Well, done Ludivine! Watch her victory video below:
