Every morning, a dog named Eclipse leaves her house alone. She gets to the dog park in the heart of Downtown Seattle. Over the years, Eclipse has become a favorite among Seattle commuters and is now seen as an inspiration, being called an “independent woman”. Each day, like a very good girl, she waits patiently at the bus stop by her home. When her bus arrives, she gets on it and is greeted by her fans. The dog has won a strong social media following because of this wonderful behavior.
According to a man who left a comment on the dog's Facebook page, Eclipse “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.” But your dogs can't walk themselves. So, how did Eclipse learn how to take the bus? It all began in 2015, when one day Eclipse’s owner, Jeff Young, was taking too long to do something. The impatient dog left him and got on the next bus going home, a routine that she picked up on from their usual outings. Young took the following bus and met back up with her at their home. Eclipse has been dedicated to her own journeys ever since.
Eclipse continues to bring light and happiness to any commuter she rides with. She has also proven for the last five years that she is an excellent navigator who should never be left waiting.
