Dog Accidentally Runs Half-Marathon, Finishes In Seventh Place

November 14, 2016 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Animals |

Early Saturday morning, Ludivine, a two-and-a-half-year-old hound dog, was let out of the house in Elkmont, Alabama, to do her business. Prone to roaming around town at will, Ludivine snuck out of the backyard and made her way to the starting area of the inaugural Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon about a quarter mile away.

Ludivine proceeded to mingle with the runners, run the entire 13.1-mile course, cross the finish line in an unofficial 1:32:56, and have a medal draped over her floppy brown ears—all without her owner, April Hamlin, realizing she had wandered off in the first place. The incident was first reported in Canadian Running Magazine.

“All I did was open the door, and she ran the race on her own accord,” Hamlin, 43, told Runner’s World, saying she received texts with photos of Ludivine from friends who were volunteering at the finish. “My first reaction was that I was embarrassed and worried that she had possibly gotten in the way of the other runners.”

This Russian Couple Adopted An Orphaned Bear Over 23 Years Ago, And They Still Live Together Today

russian couple adopts orphan bear

It’s not a conventional family, granted, but the Panteleenko unit has been a solid once since they adopted Stepan, an orphaned bear, 23 years ago.

Daily Mail reports that Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko took in Stepan when he was just 3 months old. He was found by hunters in a forest all alone and in a very bad condition. Twenty-three years later, the three still live as a family in Moscow, Russia. And, contrary to appearances, the 300-pound, 7-ft bear is a gentle giant.

His humans relay that Stepan helps around the house by watering plants. In the evenings, he loves cuddling on the couch and watching television.

Said Svetlana:

“When we adopted him, he was only three-months-old and had been found by hunters in the forest having lost his mother. He was in a very bad condition.He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear – despite what people might think, he is not aggressive at all. We have never been bitten by Stepan.”.

He’s got so many talents and loves a picnic. It’s a wonder he doesn’t eat us out of house and home,

Reportedly, the bear has never acted out or bitten either of his human companions. They credit it to him being domesticated all of his life as well as being well cared for.
