Here is the famous Seattle dog, Eclipse, who takes the bus alone to go to a park.
The story of Eclipse is very unusual, she gets on the bus alone and is already so well known to drivers and passengers that she is always greeted with a smile.
It is common to see the dog on the “D-Line” looking for a seat and jump next to a stranger. “It goes up and down on its own,” said Miles Montgomery, a Seattle broadcaster.
“It was incredible.” “I thought it was crazy.” “I took a picture of the dog after seeing her walk normally towards the first person.” “In fact, it looked like it had no owner.”
The dog goes down to the dog park. I just looked out the window and I don’t know how she did it. I was very worried about seeing through the window and I didn’t know the reason. said Montgomery.
Eclipse does not always travel alone. She visits the dog park several times a week, sometimes with her owner.
“She’s been here for two years, so she’s used to it.” “She’s a bus user.”
“Probably once a week, I get a phone call. ‘Hi. I have your dog Eclipse here. “I always have to tell them she’s fine.” She knows what she is doing, “said Jeff Young, owner of the dog.
Young says he started making constant trips, taking Eclipse to Belltown dog park. Before getting on the bus from his apartment stop, Jeff stops to smoke. If the bus arrives earlier, Eclipse goes up.
” We are separated. She got on the bus without me. It’s not difficult. She stands in front and goes down to the dog park, three or four stops later, “said Young.
A Metro Transit spokesperson said they love Eclipse and added that it would be safer if it left with its owner and a leash. ”
