Found October 18, 2013 on With Leather:
Last week, we were treated to a real life Disney movie story, when it was reported that a chocolate Labrador retriever named Boogie Butts had escaped from his home one night, only to be found the very next day running and completing a half-marathon. The Evansville, Indiana pooch with a history of escape trickery became an Internet sensation for his antics, and he was even celebrated by his town and awarded a medal for finishing the race in a very impressive 2 hours and 15 minutes. Alas, if this truly is a Disney story, then I’m afraid its ending is on par with the beginnings of such classics as Bambi, Dumbo and The Lion King, because on Tuesday Boogie’s daddy, Jerry Butts, posted to Facebook that Boogie has passed away. Hug your dogs today, folks. And tell them the legend of Boogie Butts. 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro
