SEATTLE -- A dog in Seattle has learned how to ride the bus to take herself to the local dog park.

It all began when owner Jeff Young said he would stop for a cigarette on his way to the dog park and if the bus arrived before he was done, Eclipse, the dog would get on without him.

"We get separated," Young said. "She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park."

Eclipse is a black lab, bullmastiff mix.

A spokesperson for Metro Transit said they love the fact that Eclipse is a supporter of public transit.
