Seattle dog masters public transit, rides bus alone to the dog park
A hilarious story out of Seattle, where a dog named “Eclipse” has apparently mastered the public transit system to get to the dog park by herself:
The duo lives right near the bus stop at 3 Ave. W. and W. Mercer Street. Eclipse’s solo rush hour ride happened one day when her owner took too long to finish a cigarette.”We get separated. She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park,” said Jeff Young, who owns the dog. “It’s not hard to get on. She gets on in front of her house and she gets off at the dog park, three or four stops later.”
The dog regularly rides the bus by herself, to the delight of the bus drivers and fellow passengers:
“She’s been here the last two years, so she’s been urbanized, totally. She’s a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog,” he said. “Probably once a week I get a phone call. ‘Hi. I have your dog Eclipse here on 3rd and Bell,'” he recounted. “I have to tell them, ‘no. She’s fine.’ She knows what she’s doing.”A spokesman for Metro Transit said the agency loves that a dog appreciates public transit.
