An old dog has learned new tricks in Seattle.
Eclipse, a black lab/bull mastiff mix, joins the thousands of Metro Transit riders who travel each day on board a city bus.
Few are greeted by a smile when they slobber on the seats. Eclipse, however, is.
"She sits here just like a person does! She's a person!” one rider said. “And all the bus drivers know her."
Eclipse, like a human, uses Seattle's buses to get around.
She often roams the aisles of the D Line looking for a seat and will hop up next to a stranger, which makes perfect sense for a dog who rides the bus alone.
"She was most concerned about seeing out the window,” said Miles Montgomery, also a bus rider.
Montgomery, a local DJ, said it was almost unbelievable.
"And I thought, ‘man oh man, this is nuts!'" he said.
He said it was so unbelievable that he had to snap a selfie.
"The dog gets off at the stop and the dog park and gets of the bus, and I just look out the window and I'm like, ‘did that just happen?'" Montgomery said.
Eclipse's owner said like a lot of great things that happen, this one happened by accident.
"She's been urbanized, totally,” said Jeff Young, the dog's owner. “She's a bus-riding, side-walk walking dog."
A dog amidst humans. A canine among commuters.
It proves even public transit, apparently, has gone to the dogs.
"She makes everybody happy! How could you not love this thing,” the rider said.
A spokesman for Metro Transit said they love that Eclipse is such a supporter of public transportation and added “she would be much safer if she had her owner on a leash.”
