SEATTLE, Washington -- It's hard to imagine a slobbering commuter getting anything but a hefty stink eye while riding mass transportation, but there is one exception in Seattle. Her name is Eclipse.

The black lab mix rides the bus solo. She gets on, and gets off—using mass transit to visit the dog park!

"She's been urbanized, totally. She's a bus-riding, side-walk walking dog," says Jeff Young, Eclipse’s owner.

Apparently it all started by accident. Young says he and Eclipse used to go to the park together. Jeff would have a smoke while waiting for the bus, and when he wasn't done in-time, Eclipse started leaving without him! The rest is history.

Now, we guess the bus system in Seattle has gone to the dogs. And it's everyone's treat.
