A very intelligent black Lab named Eclipse, who lives in Seattle, rides the bus a couple of times a week by herself in order go the dog park. She simply boards the bus in front of her home, rides for a few stops and then gets off in front of the park, where she sometimes meets her human Jeff Young. Young told KOMO News that Eclipse’s solo trips came about accidentally when he didn’t finish his cigarette in time to board the bus.
We get separated. She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park. …It’s not hard to get on. She gets on in front of her house and she gets off at the dog park, three or four stops later.She’s been here the last two years, so she’s been urbanized, totally. She’s a bus-riding, sidewalk-walking dog. …Probably once a week I get a phone call. ‘Hi. I have your dog Eclipse here on 3rd and Bell. …I have to tell them, ‘no. She’s fine.’ She knows what she’s doing.

In the eight or so months since we last checked in Theo and Beau, the adorable best friends who take daily naps together, a lot has changed for the boy and his pup. Beau turned 3, the Shyba family celebrated Theo’s one-year adoptaversary, and the famous duo became a trio! With the birth of little Evangeline (nicknamed “Evvie”) last September, Theo and Beau gained a new cuddle buddy to join them for their hour-long siestas.
Evvie fits right in with her big brothers. Nestled among soft blankets and pillows on their parents’ bed, the three make for an incredibly cute sight each afternoon. Beau lovingly sleeps with his arm around his baby sister, while Theo affectionately curls up at Beau’s side. Jessica Shyba (a.k.a. mommasgonecity), Beau and Evvie’s mom, writes on her blog, “I’m trying not to get my hopes up that this magical nap time trifecta is a habit that will last, but each day this happens—with or without Evvie—I’m ever in awe at their sweet slumber.”
Fans of Theo and Beau, be sure to keep an eye out for Shyba’s new photo book Naptime with Theo and Beau, available on Amazon and other online retailers in February.
