This 80-Year-Old Man Built An Epic Train To Take Rescue Dogs on Adventures
When 80-year-old Eugene Bostick retired 15 years ago, he never thought he'd end up dedicating his free time to caring for abandoned dogs, but Eugene had an undeniable calling.
"We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn," the Fort Worth, Texas native told The Dodo. "People sometimes come by and dump dogs out here, leaving them to starve. So, we started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered. We made a place for them to live."
Besides giving the strays a home, Eugene has also discovered an ingenious way to keep them entertained.
He built a special dog train, so he can take the nine cuddly canines he cares for on trips through town.
"One day I was out and I seen this guy with a tractor who attached these carts to pull rocks. I thought, 'Dang, that would do for a dog train,'" said Bostick. "I'm a pretty good welder, so I took these plastic barrels with holes cut in them, and put wheels under them and tied them together."
And the pups are positively smitten with their cool ride.
"Whenever they hear me hooking the tractor up to it, man, they get so excited," said Bostick."They all come running and jump in on their own.
