Canine Commuter Rides Bus Alone to Dog Park

A black Labrador retriever named Eclipse has recently turned heads by riding the bus—alone—to her local dog park in Seattle, Washington. Commuters and transit employees alike have reported seeing Eclipse board the bus in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood and then ride about four stops to the dog park. While dogs are allowed on Seattle buses, they usually have human companions. Eclipse's independent streak does not bother her owner, however, who says that he just meets up with her later at the dog park. More...

I dad's dog could unfasten leashes from companion dogs. Exceptionally smart and so lovable.

My sister had to start spelling "walk" & "car" because every time these words were used in a conversation, the dog would get excited. Now the dog can spell! They have to say they're pedestering (the act of being a pedestrian) or going in the "vehicle", which they love pronouncing in the comic way of US tv cops: "veeeee-HICK-el". The dog was so upset it started crying when they were packing the "veeeehickle" for a holiday, then my sister found all the dog's toys placed next to their luggage: it had packed its things too!

I saw this article the other day and was enthralled by what I read. My only question/thought regarding this is; and we humans believe we are the only intelligent beings. I have met numerous people/children that could not navigate this "course", without help or guidance; wow, this is beyond wonderful.

It is good for this dog to enjoy her freedom and show independence and self-reliance. Many people can lean much from this.

I wonder when dogs will have pocket money to buy a bus ticket or a hot dog.

roger... the image of a dog buying a hot dog was too funny.

Years ago, I adopted a mutt that could spell. Not only could we not say 'run' but we couldn't spell it either because she went crazy. She loved to run.

Jeff Young is into a great self-promotion here - maybe as a dog trainer - (never mind the dog who was a priori trained where to get on and where to get off the bus to reach the desirable destination, a lovely park).
I am for animal rights, but this man has gone far in promoting himself.
