80-Year-Old Texas Man Builds ‘Dog Train’ to Treat Rescue Pups to Rides Around Town
温馨:80岁大爷打造"汪星人小火车"


有个80岁的退休老大爷,他收养了一群周围没人要的流浪狗狗, 他用一堆塑料桶做了一台狗狗小火车.........

平常有空就这么开出去溜一圈..... 各种酷炫!!!

Texas retiree Eugene Bostick has choo-choo-chosen to spend his free time helping rescue dogs in a unique way.

The 80-year-old Fort Worth man has lived on a 13-acre farm with his brother, Corky, since the 1940s, reports NBCDFW. It's a location that attracts numerous canines in need.

“We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn,” Bostick 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.”

To keep his rotating cast of doggie residents happy and entertained, Bostick has created something he calls “The Dog Train.” This invention consists of a tractor driven by Bostick, followed by a chain of cut open barrels, each with a dog inside. From engine to caboose, Bostick's locomotive is the sweetest train in 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,'” the retiree said. “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.”

Several times a week, Bostick loads up each barrel with an adorable dog and sets off on a little adventure, driving the animals through nearby forests, parks, golf courses and more — a treat the human locals look forward to as well.

The dogs have started to adore the outings so much that they jump in the barrels as soon as they hear their caretaker hitching the train to the tractor .



“I'm getting up in age. I'm 80 now, so I suppose it can't last too much longer, but I'll keep it going as long as I can,” said Bostick. “The dogs have a great time. They just really enjoy it.”

When the dogs aren't out on the train, they are running around and enjoying Bostick's expansive farm. Over the years, Bostick has rescued dozens of dogs, turning their sad situation into pooch paradise — transportation included. (peoplepets)
