SEATTLE, Wash. – An old dog has learned some new tricks.
She rides the city bus to the dog park by herself!
“Eclipse” is a black Lab/Bull Mastiff mix who, like human riders, uses Seattle’s buses to get around.
She often roams the aisles of the “D Line” looking for a seat, and will hop up next to a stranger.
Bus riders love the furry passenger and some can’t believe this dog actually rides the bus alone.
In fact, one passenger snapped a ‘selfie’ with the dog after seeing her solo ride first-hand.
The dog actually belongs to owner Jeff Young, who says it started with constant trips together to the dog park.
Before getting on the bus by their apartment, Jeff would stop to smoke.
If the bus got there before he was done, Eclipse would take off without him.
“We get separated. She gets on the bus without me. And I catch up with her at the dog park,” said Jeff Young, dog owner.
A spokesperson for the public transit in that area said they love that Eclipse is a supporter of public transit, but she would be much safer if she had her owner on a leash.
