She's known as Seattle's Bus Riding Dog.Why? Well, because she rides the bus, of course!
"Every day she leaves her house, by herself."
via: Facebook"She takes the bus downtown to the dog park where she spends a couple of hours getting exercise and making friends, and then she takes the bus back home again."
" She even has her own bus pass attached to the collar."
via: Facebook"It started when her owner, Jeff Young, was taking too long when the bus arrived, so she impatiently ran ahead and got on the bus by herself."
"The bus driver recognized her and dropped her off at the dog park, and later Jeff caught up with her."
via: Facebook"After several more trips by herself, Jeff started letting her go on her own, and she always comes back home a couple of hours later."
"All of the bus drivers know her."
via: Facebook"She makes them smile, and many of the regular passengers enjoy seeing her every day and will often sit down next to her."
"Even the police have given their approval as long as the bus drivers are okay with the arrangement."
via: Facebook"She makes everybody happy."
And we can see why.
