We heard some very sad news over the weekend: Boogie Butts, the chocolate Labrador who captured a gold medal (and plenty of public affection) earlier this month for finishing a half-marathon in Evanston, Indiana, died last week.

Like people, dogs too have to train for running. But I am happy that this dog had the opportunity to run his happy heart out ~ literally. I am thinking he had a good good life.

Maybe Boogie had a sixth sense about his death coming so he wanted to run to the end. He was a beautiful lab. RIP Boogie.

Oh my, I hope it had nothing to do with his running those 13 miles. RIP Boogie, you surely were loved and can now run and play over the Rainbow Bridge with our dogs, Spencer and Katie, who loved to run too.

It is so sad, but Boogie sure had lots of love and kudos for the last week and tons of love before that. RIp Boogie and when you get over the bridge Sandy & Peewee will be waiting for you to have more fun,

Jerry...you had a beautiful dog there, & my heart breaks for you & your family. Boogie was a fantastic dog, loved by many. He will be sorely missed. Be happy for the time you had with him, & know that he is waiting for you across the Rainbow Bridge. You will meet up again.

Sorry, I don't have a dog at home but I read that Boogie died 10 Days After Running a Half-Marathon.......maybe was not a good idea dont' you think? Dogs likes and needs to walk but no for this long way. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong but this marathon has been too much for his hearth :((((((
