This image provided by KOMO-TV shows Eclipse, a black Labrador, riding between two other passengers on her way to the dog park. In owner Jeff Young's words, "She's a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog." Young says his dog sometimes gets on the bus without him, and he catches up with her at the dog park three or four stops away. Bus riders report she hops onto seats next to strangers, and watches out the window for her stop. Says commuter Tiona Rainwater, "All the bus drivers know her ... she makes everybody happy." A Metro Transit spokesman says the agency loves that a dog appreciates public transit.
