Seattle Dog Figures Out Buses, Starts Riding Solo To The Dog Park

Seattle’s public transit system has had a ruff go of things lately, and that has riders smiling.

You see, of the 120 million riders who used the system last year, one of them is actually a dog. Seattle’s KOMO-TV reports the 2-year-old black Labrador mix, named Eclipse, has become a regular fixture on the city’s D-Line after she figured out how to ride the bus alone to the dog park.

Find out how this pup learned how to ride the bus by herself here.

PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES A DOG’S LAST DAY

Photographer Robyn Arouty published a series of photos on her website of a Black Labrador in Texas named Duke.  He had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his leg and the leg had to be amputated.  Unfortunately, Duke had to be put to sleep on July 7th because the cancerous tumor had spread. Duke’s owner, Jordan Roberts, is a friend of Arouty and asked the photographer to capture Duke’s last day with his family. He ate some treats, spent time with his family, played in the water, and rested in a park. Duke looks like a wonderful dog who is now at peace.  Click here for more at Robyn Arouty Photography (note: the website has been down at times due to the large number of visitors).
