Going it alone to the Dog Park
A black Labrador named Eclipse just wants to get to the dog park.
She is also after my heart ( I can relate to her independence…)
If her owner takes too long finishing his cigarette, and their bus arrives, she climbs aboard herself and rides to her stop – the fellow Seattle bus passengers are most enthused.
KOMO-TV reported that local radio host Miles Montgomery was amazed to see the pooch get off the bus, without an owner, at a dog park last week.
The dog and her owner, Jeff Young, live right near a bus stop.
In Young’s words, “She’s a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog.”

Young says his dog sometimes gets on the bus without him, and he catches up with her at the dog park three or four stops away.
Bus riders report she hops onto seats next to strangers, and watches out the window for her stop.
Says commuter Tiona Rainwater, “All the bus drivers know her … she makes everybody happy.”
A Metro Transit spokesman says the agency loves that a dog which appreciates public transit.
