There are so many reasons to visit Seattle. Whether you are interested in regular tourist activities like going to the Space Needle and eating in that famous spinning restaurant or you are more of an outdoorsy person and you want to go hiking around Mount Rainier, this is a city with a lot to offer.
If you are a dog lover, there is actually one more reason to visit Seattle. If you get on the bus, you might end up encountering a dog named Eclipse riding the bus by herself, proving like many dogs do that dogs can be quite strong, independent animals!
Generally, people don’t see dogs riding by themselves on public transportation. It’s not necessarily something that should be condoned because something could actually end up happening to the dog if the dog is not trained well or some other unexpected event ends up occurring.
However, there’s no denying that Eclipse definitely looks very happy when she is writing on public transportation, In fact, this dog was giving her very own bus pass so that she could ride public transportation. The bus pass hangs off of her neck from her collar. She has actually become known as a regular on the bus, and other riders really enjoy seeing her.

One of these riders recently shared a picture of Eclipse on Reddit with the following caption: “So this is Eclipse. Every day she leaves the house by herself and takes the bus downtown to the dog park. She even has her own bus pass attached to her collar.” This is not the only person on Reddit who had something to say about this beautiful black dog, however.
Another person on this site says, “I used to get on at the same bus stop and ride the same bus with her every morning in Seattle. Her owner hated all of the publicity she gets but he understood. She would sometimes get on the bus without him paying attention then she would get off at the dog park and he would meet her there. Very cool dog.”
Eclipse, the black dog with the very cool and suitable name, has become almost human in her ability to get on the bus and ride to her dog park on a regular basis. This particular dog may actually be proof that dogs are much more capable of learning and understanding than we give them credit for most of the time.
Anytime anyone is in Seattle, it would definitely be a treat to see her on public transportation, riding the bus just like they are to try to get where they are all trying to go.
She also has a Facebook fan page!
