The famous dog of Seattle, Eclipse, known for riding the bus, died on Friday. The news was shared on her own Facebook page.
According to the tale, she was ten years old when she died in her sleep. Her previous writings revealed that she had malignant tumors.
The main reason behind people’s attention to Eclipse was taking the bus by herself, which started in 2015. When the bus arrived one day, he was still smoking a cigarette, so she boarded without him.
Within a few weeks, the black lab-bullmastiff mix was always with her owner on the way to work in her red harness. In 2015, other people who rode the bus with her told Seattle’s KOMO News that bus drivers knew her and that she knew where to get off by looking out the window.
While people marveled at Eclipse’s skill, Young spoke about it with what could be interpreted as casualness or confidence in his dog.
“We get divided.” “She boards the bus without me, and I meet her in the dog park,” he stated to KOMO News. It’s not difficult to get started. She gets on in front of her house and gets off three or four stops later at the dog park. ”
The regional transportation operator, King County Metro, celebrated its legendary passengers, even releasing a music video in 2015:
On its Twitter page, King County Metro paid homage to the dog, uploading a photograph of her and the remark, “Eclipse was a wonderful, well-known, bus-riding dog and a real Seattle icon.” You made everyone happy and demonstrated to us all that excellent dogs belong on the bus. ”
Eclipse was a super sweet, world-famous, bus riding dog and true Seattle icon.
You brought joy and happiness to everyone and showed us all that good dogs belong on the bus. pic.twitter.com/YhSFjNGU05
