Eclipse hit the news internationally when she rode a Seattle Metro bus on her own to get to her favorite place – the dog park.

Her independence and intelligence inspired a class of Colorado middle schoolers to write a children’s book!

Whitney Yeager, a language arts class teacher at Laredo Middle School,learned about Eclipse’s story and thought it would make an awesome class project.

“I just thought truth is stranger than fiction and I got so excited about this story,” Yeager said. “I have to figure out how to do a writing prompt with my kids in my class.”

So Yeager decided to show her class the Labrador’s story.

“And then I said, ‘Your job is to write from the dog’s point of view; write the narrative as if it’s the dog telling the story,’ ” she said.

Each 6th grader in her class got to contribute one line to the story. The combined lines resulted in an adorable 22-page illustrated book.

 

Here are some of the lines the kids came up with:

  • “‘Morning eclipse!” the bus driver greeted. I responded with a low “arf” and trot to the very back of the bus. On the bus, as I go down the road to my seat, everyone watches me like I’m an alien. I jump up and take a seat. When I’m on the bus, I feel like a cloud, free to go wherever I want to.
  • A lot of people find me ‘cute’ & stuff, but others find me odd. When people snap photos of me, I can’t help but greet them with a friendly kiss.
