Meet Eclipse, Seattle’s celebrity dog, who takes a bus to a nearby park every day all by herself.Seattle commuters have reported seeing the 2-year-old black labrador riding the bus all alone, and always to the same destination.“All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does,” said fellow rider Tiona Rainwater.
“She makes everybody happy. How could you not love this face?”It all started when Eclipse was at a bus stop with her owner Jeff Young.Her human was taking too long to finish his cigarette so, when the bus arrived, the pooch just got on it by herself and got off at the park.
Since that day, the owner knows he can always catch up with her later in the park.
This clever girl can ride 3-4 stops on the D line bus on her own and always knows where to get off.
Although some officers say that Eclipse should ideally be on a leash, King County allows dogs on public transport at the discretion of a driver.
So, as this pooch causes no harm but only makes passengers smile, the drivers are always more than happy to give this four-legged miss a lift.
What about the doggie herself? Well, she seems to be proud of herself.
Besides, her Facebook profile says: “I love my big city life and enjoy taking the D line daily to the Belltown dog park.” What a smart doggie!
