Dog Takes The Bus To And From Dog Park Alone To Play For 2 Hours All By Herself

Eclipse is a black Labrador who is proving that she’s a smart and independent dog who doesn’t need her owner to take her to the park. In fact, this Seattle-based canine gets to and from the dog park all by herself using the bus system. She spends her time at the dog park playing and making new friends, and then once she’s done, she heads back to the bus stop in order to get a ride back home. She’s even got a ticket attached to her collar, which she uses to commute back and forth!

This adorable ritual began the day that her owner, Jeff, was taking too long to finish smoking a cigarette at the bus stop. Not wanting to delay her visit to the park any longer, Eclipse helped herself onto the bus and rode it a few stops before disembarking at the park. Robbie Lauren shared a post on Facebook about Eclipse and her bus riding, and the post has received more than 284k likes and 73K comments.

Robbie wrote, “This is Eclipse. Every day she leaves her house, by herself, and takes the bus downtown to the dog park where she spends a couple of hours getting exercise and making friends, and then she takes the bus back home again. She even has her own bus pass attached to the collar. It started when her owner, Jeff Young, was taking too long when the bus arrived, so she impatiently ran ahead and got on the bus by herself.”

Robbie continued, “Jeff soon realized that Eclipse knew the way to and from the park and that she could be trusted to go alone. The bus driver recognized her and dropped her off at the dog park, and later Jeff caught up with her. After several more trips by herself, Jeff started letting her go on her own, and she always comes back home a couple of hours later.  All of the bus drivers know her and she makes them smile, and many of the regular passengers enjoy seeing her every day and will often sit down next to her.”

And apparently, Eclipse is such a beloved sight on public transport, that the police have given their approval for her to travel on the bus – so long as the bus drivers are ok with it. She’s become so popular that she’s even been set up with her own Facebook page, “Eclipse Seattle’s Bus Riding Dog,” where over 60,000 fans share their photos and experiences of the popular bus-riding doggie.
