Howdy folks and greetings from the Great Plains of North Texas!
This is a total fluff piece today, I admit it, but it was so cute and funny that I wanted to share it. We got enough serious posts going around these days right?
Mrs. J saw this story on facebook and I got a big kick out of it. I know, fb sucks and I almost never go there but sometimes they have something funny.
There's a dog named Eclipse in Seattle, Washington who rides the bus back and forth to the park to spend the day playing with the other dogs, and she does it all by herself!
The way it started was her owner would take her to the park most days and one day while they were waiting on the bus Eclipse's owner was smoking a cigarette when the bus pulled up.
He was waiting to finish his cigarette but she was so anxious to go that she jumped on the bus without him when he wasn't looking. Well, by the time he realized she wasn't with him anymore the bus was pulling away!
She had slipped by the driver too but luckily when he saw her he knew they always go to the park so he let her off there and her owner caught up with her in a little while.
After she made a couple more trips by herself the owner started fastening a ticket to her collar every morning and she was all set. The drivers know her and most of the riders are local regulars and they all keep an eye on her too.
Eclipse is one independent dog! I don't think I could let my dog go by herself like that could you guys? The bus trip would be the safest part of the day. She's got a great system going though!
I wonder what people think who don't know that she's a regular? lol.
Dog's are so cool. So are cats. Don't take offense cat lovers! lol
Thanks for stopping by folks, have a blessed weekend!
PS- In more dog news, one study by psychologists found that women sleep better with dogs than human partners! lol.
They sleep more soundly and feel more secure because dogs are much better at alerting them to any unusual sounds or movement and dogs sleep with less movement than human partners.
It makes sense doesn't it? So guys, don't be offended if your lady prefers sleeping with a dang dog than you. lol.
