Go Dog Go!

I was rabbit hunting once with my grandfather, a cousin or two, and an uncle.  Call it 1988.

Amidst our beagles came the sound of a dog no one recognized.  A few minutes later a geriatric, obese, Basset Hound could be seen moving through the woods, lagging way behind the pack of hounds.

When the genetic code "explodes" there is no holding it back.  Tell that to "Ludivine" who just knew there were was a whole lot of running in a general direction, joined in, and won a medal for seventh place.

An Alabama dog who found her way into the middle of a half-marathon ended up finishing the race in seventh place and earning herself a medal.
Ludivine, a two-and-a-half-year-old bloodhound, was the star of this year’s Elkmont Half Marathon on Jan. 16, in Elkmont, Alabama, after she found herself at the race’s starting line, unbeknownst to her owner.
