A dog's bathroom break turned into her "big break" when she unknowingly finished a half-marathon.

On Jan. 16, Ludivine the bloodhound turned up at the starting line of the Elkmont Half Marathon in Alabama.

The dog trotted along with runners for the entire 13-1 miles. She competed without a human or leash and finished in seventh place.

Her owner, who is not a runner, didn't even know about her celebrity dog until a friend called and filled her in.

Ludivine was presented with a finisher's medal for her accomplishment. She then went home and took a long nap.
