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.

” 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. ”
