On Monday, there was a big surprise on Prince Edward Bus #29 when, instead of A.J. Southall getting on for a ride to school, his Labrador, Lucy, got on board. Luckily, the bus driver, Mrs. Jones, and two neighbor children, who are great friends of Lucy, explained to the dog that she wasn't old enough and convinced her to stay home. Lucy has since gotten over the incident, and believes she is now old enough to ride the bus to school.
