satanicpuppy: Bloodhounds are bred for endurance along with sniffing. Most animals can’t hang with humans over long distances.
thehonestyfish: Meanwhile, my mutt makes it halfway down the block before she wants to start heading back for home
Rossum81: “*She stayed with a few of the front runners, ran off to sniff some animal carcasses, romp in the water, and then back to the race.* [S*]he stayed on the course for 13.1 miles, finished seventh, and was the highest placed female.*”
The women runners are probably thinking, “What a bitch!”
sharkaddy3: [I imagine her initial reaction to the race was something like this.](https://i.imgur.com/R0NS4o8.jpg) Then she joined in cause she’s a good girl and wanted to help.
inckorrect: “This is an outrage ! I demand this dog to be disqualified! “
“Show me in the rulebook where it is said that a dog cannot participate?”
“One day, Smither, I’ll get you. One day…”
sonia72quebec: “Where are those nice humans going? I will follow them…”
Superschutte: I used to have an English Coonhound when I lived in the Mountains of North Georgia. Craziest dog ever. First, she was smart and could get out of just about anywhere (doors that weren’t dead-bolted meant nothing to her). Second, she was the fastest dog I have ever met (she even had a bum leg). Third, she never really cared much about what I or anyone else wanted of her.
She would get out and I would have friends who lived miles away from me tell me about seeing her. She would always eventually come home though (usually covered in animal guts, blood, mud, and God knows what else).
I would like to think that I miss that dog…but I don’t. She was the biggest pain in the butt ever. If all dogs go to Heaven, I am sure St. Peter is yelling at her right now.
Omnipotent_Goose: Meanwhile I struggle to even get up to pee because I just got comfortable in my bed.
mydogismarley: She’s a good girl.
Mile114: …Pistachio nut. *red* pistachio nut. All natural *white* pistachio nut…
MandingoPants: When* I went trekking to Machu Picchu, a dog trekked along with us during 3 out of the 4 days.
It crossed a river (tried and got saved on the other side) and ended up walking around 30-35 kilometers only to walk in on us dancing one night towards the end of the trip. We couldn’t believe how much the dog had traveled.
Somehow, it seemed like it wasn’t the first time!!
– that’s the doggo like 4 hours into the first day!
Mike9797: And all she got was a lousy t-shirt.
ididnotdoitever: LOL, I had an airedale who would run on Markham Hill every morning with the University of Arkansas cross country team.
SmashBusters: >She stayed with a few of the front runners, ran off to sniff some animal carcasses, romp in the water
When a dog does it, it’s adorable.
When I do it, suddenly I have to see a therapist once a week.
I’m so sick of this bullshit.
Trilliante: Some dogs do this…….. Mine just sits in the middle of the road 100 feet from our driveway and refuses to walk any further……… I have to carry her back.
Grandpa82: The longest pee run ever.
SDTHEMAN: Alabama here’s your write in candidate.
prufrock2015: Better source with more doggie pictures during the race here: https://www.runnersworld.com/running-with-dogs/hound-bandits-half-marathon-in-alabama
Piratepanda121: Good girl!
Donthatethaplaya: Somebody give this doggie a smiley face t shirt
Dinierto: I mean who hasn’t gone out to pee and accidentally ran a marathon?
tarpchateau: Meanwhile my bloodhound has the daily activity of yanking my arm out of socket when I try to walk her lol. She’s a big dumb excited baby all the time.
SteverenoZed: Imagine being eighth in that race
where_is_my_monkey: My greyhound won 23 races but now that he’s retired the only running he does is around in a circle for 30 seconds and then spends the rest of the day sleeping.
cadaci: Must suck to be the person who came in 8th
MrGruntsworthy: When you gotta go, you gotta go
Triscuitador: It’s almost like Air Bud in real life
PaulMatthews78: Did the dog put one of those 13.1 stickers on her dog house afterwards?
Dunkleosteus-Prime: R A C E R G I R L E
brettyv82: Dog gone it, it’s a bloody miracle!
aes3512: That dog is awesome. Her owner needs to start running with her!
_Not_Bruce_Wayne_: Man this is one of those times I really wish animals could talk,
“I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, I WENT OUTSIDE TO PEE AND EVERYONE WAS RUNNING, SO I JUST JOINED IN, AND THEY JUST RAN AND RAN AND RAN AND IT WAS AMAZING!!”
THEMlGHTYTHOR: “I JUST FELT LIKE RUN-NING-UH!”
she-pope: That’s a bloodhound for you. Give ’em something to work on, and they’ll keep moving for hours. Stop for five minutes to rest, and they’re done for the rest of the day.
danny_man: I can relate to this dog. If I saw a bunch of people running, I’d run with them. Not about to be caught by whatever they’re running from
smashew: If dogs were a different country and were allowed to compete in the olympics, they would be able to win every running sport we have… by extremely wide margins.
strawberryhichew: This is the type of news I like to read about
nurdpie: I liked it instantly because: dog. Then I was going through comments for a solid 10 minutes before realizing that she joined in a marathon for humans. Are dog marathons a thing? Because I would watch the fudge out of that and that is probably the only way I’d ever consider being in a marathon (or running, at all).
