The Bloodhound Gang

I love everything about this story.

A dog--a bloodhound, no less--goes out for a tinkle and accidentally runs a half-marathon. Coming in 7th!

Read the story, since it's cute (and has cute pictures of the bloodhound in question) but I'd like to point out some highlights:

1. The dog's name is Ludivine. That's an awesome doggie name. I looked it up and it was apparently a character in the series Les Gens de Mogador. I looked that up and it seems like a French miniseries fro the 1970s of which I can find no English-language websites. I am mildly surprised that someone from Elkmont, Alabama named their dog after a French TV show that is so obscure not even the Internet has it.

2. The bloodhound not only ran the race but also explored a little, including a dead rabbit. Bloodhounds gonna bloodhound.

3. The nut is this quote from the owner: "I can’t believe she ran the whole half marathon because she’s actually really lazy." That is everything you need to know about how hound dogs work. Lazy right up until they aren't.
