Pup-lic transportation: Seattle mutt takes solo bus rides to dog park – TODAY.com

A black Labrador-mastiff mix, Eclipse made her first solo venture into pup-lic transportation about a year and a half ago by accident, according to her owner, Jeff Young. Young was finishing a cigarette by his apartment in the Queen Anne neighborhood when the D Line bus — which frequently transports them to a dog park in nearby Belltown — arrived. Eclipse apparently couldn’t wait any longer, so she hopped aboard before Young could join her.

Young followed Eclipse and found her at the dog park. She’s made several trips on her own since then.

"I’m on the bus right behind her, when she goes on by herself," Young, 50, told TODAY.com. "They come every 10 to 12 minutes."

Fellow commuters appear to have warmed to their four-legged bus mate, and local bus drivers seem to recognize her when she hops on the bus unaccompanied. She’ll wander the aisle and switch seats to pass the time, but never at the expense of looking out the window to see where she is.

Once KISW disc jockey Miles Montgomery witnessed Eclipse’s solo bus trips for himself and tweeted a couple of selfies with her Friday, word of the independent pooch started going viral.
