Bus riders in Belltown, Washington, have noticed something strange during their commutes recently: a black Labrador on the bus by herself, without her owner.
The commuters in this Seattle suburb started noticing the black dog a while ago, but she only recently became famous for her bus-riding antics. Seattle is very dog-friendly, and even has a food truck just for pups.
The dog, 3-year-old Eclipse, lives outside of Seattle with her owner, Jeff Young. Jeff and Eclipse love going to the dog park together, and they always take the bus.
One day, while Jeff was finishing a cigarette, Eclipse got on the bus without him.
Luckily, the smart dog had done this ride before, so when she saw the dog park out the window, she confidently made her way off the bus. Jeff met up with her there later.
That first solo ride marked the beginning of Eclipse’s life as a commuting dog. Now, the bus drivers and passengers know her, and she’s a welcome addition to any morning commute.
