Commuter dog rides bus alone to the park

Post by Kitkat on Mon 19 Jan 2015 - 12:34

A dog in Seattle regularly rides a bus alone to take herself to the local dog park.

The two-year-old black Labrador named 'Eclipse' gets on and off the bus by herself and later meets up with her owner at the park, who said: "She's been urbanised. She's a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog".

One fellow commuter reported how Eclipse liked to watch out the window for her stop

It's really not that unusual.  Where I lived before, a partially disabled 80-something neighbour had two dogs - a big labrador and a little Jack Russel terrier.  For many years it was a regular sight to see the labrador taking the terrier for a walk, holding the little dog's lead in his mouth - padding along by themselves.  So cute to see - and when the little terrier died and only labrador, Foxy, was left, he used to go up to the newsagent by himself and get the daily newspaper and bring it back home in his mouth.  Inside the house when the neighbour become more immobile, Foxy did loads of little things to help his disabled owner, opening and closing doors, fetching things from the kitchen and bringing them back again.  It was lovely to see.
