This is an update to a earlier post, in which we shared the story of Dozer, a 3-year-old goldendoodle who escaped through an invisible fence in his yard to join the more than 2,000 people running by his house in Sunday’s Maryland Half Marathon.
Since that time, Dozer was given an official race finishers’ medal — and some dog treats — by race co-chairmen Michael Greenebaum and Jon Sevel. Dozer has also raised more than than $9,000 for cancer research at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center via his runners’ page, where people can donate and post comments of support. Dozer also has his own fan page on Facebook.
Dozer’s exploits have also been featured on the Web sites of ESPN, Runner’s World and the Baltimore Sun, among others, and people just can’t seem to get enough of the high-energy, high-fiving dog (see video for proof).

Good Dog Dozer!
