I'm so ronery, so ronery and sadry arone: In Portland, my hometown, a dog boarded a local bus in Gresham and rode all the way to the Gresham Transit Center, where he was picked up by police. No one has any idea who he belongs to. Poor dog. From the Oregonian:

The dog boarded the bus the same time as a passenger did -- about 2:30 p.m. -- at Northeast 168th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard, according to TriMet spokesman Bruce Solberg.

Pets are not allowed unless they are in a carrier, or they are service animals for disabled passengers. When the bus driver asked the man if the dog was a service animal, the man said the dog wasn’t his.

The dog was well-behaved, Solberg said. After reporting the situation, the driver allowed the dog to ride to the Gresham Transit Center where a Portland police officer picked him up and brought him to the Oregon Human Society, which then turned him over to Multnomah County Animal Services.

At the humane society, the staff nicknamed the dog "Buster," spokesman David Lytle said.
