Next stop: Dog Park

This dog is named Eclipse. Every day she leaves her house by herself and takes the bus downtown to the dark park, where she spends a few hour exercising and making friends. Then she takes the bus back home again. It started one day when her owner, Jeff Young, was taking too long when the bus arrived, so she ran ahead and got on by herself. The driver recognized her and dropped her off at the dog park, and later Jeff caught up. 

 After several more trips by herself, Jeff started letting her go on her own, and she always came home a few hours later. All the bus drivers know her, and she makes them smile. Regular passengers enjoy seeing her and will often sit next to her. She even has her own bus pass, attached to her collar.
