(NEWSER) – Seattle bus riders have recently been finding themselves with a transit companion who's a bit furrier than most: Eclipse, a 2-year-old black Labrador, has been riding the bus—alone—to a Belltown dog park. "All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does," says one commuter of the dog, who often roams the aisles, sits in the seats, looks out the windows, and of course, licks everything in sight. "She makes everybody happy," the rider tells KOMO.
A local radio host who noticed the dog last week notes, "She was most concerned about seeing out the window, and I couldn't figure out what that was." When she exited the bus at the dog park, he figured it out: "It was really just about seeing where her stop was."
