This Dog Takes The Bus By Itself Everyday To Go To The Park

Eclipse is a black Labrador retriever mix and a regular on the D-Line through Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood.

“All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does,” fellow rider Tiona Rainwater told KOMO. “She makes everybody happy. How could you not love this face?”

It all started one day at the bus stop, when her owner, Jeff Young, took too long to finish his cigarette.

Eclipse enjoys the bus-riding so much she took her solitary trips to the park almost every day since then, meeting her owner later on directly at the park.
