Eclipse, an amazing dog who is quite a celebrity in Seattle. She takes a bus to a nearby park by herself every day and makes the passengers happy.
This is the happiest passenger you’ve ever seen on public transportation, a 5-year-old dog named Eclipse, who has her own bus pass so she can visit her favorite dog park. Eclipse is a beautiful black Lab from Seattle who is practically a celebrity.
Tiona Rainwater told KOMO NEWS:
All bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does. She makes everyone happy. How not to love this face?
Dog takes the bus every day to get to a dog park
It all started when Eclipse was at a bus stop with her human father Jeff Young.
He was taking too long to finish her cigarette, so the impatient bitch couldn’t wait, and when the bus finally arrived, she took it by herself and got off at the park.
Since that day Jeff knows that he can always meet her later in the park. The man realized that Eclipse can take the bus she needs by herself and always knows where to get off.
We separated. She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park.
But don’t worry, because sometimes Jeff misses the bus and doesn’t get on with Eclipse, she’s not alone. She is quite a celebrity and her travel companions are more than happy to take care of her.
She walks along the aisle until she finds a free seat. She often sits next to strangers, using her canine charms to make friends while she waits to get to the dog park.
Eclipse is very happy traveling by bus
Eclipse even has a fan club that call themselves Ecliptomaniacs and she also has her own Facebook fanpage where you can follow her adventures called: Eclipse Seattle’s Bus Riding Dog.
While some officials say the Eclipse should ideally be on a leash, King County allows dogs to travel on public transportation at the driver’s discretion.
Therefore, since this dog does not cause any harm, but only makes the passengers smile, drivers are always more than happy to give this four-legged young lady a ride.
Also, her Facebook profile of hers says:
I love my life in the big city and enjoy taking the D line daily to Belltown Dog Park.
