Eugene Bostick didn’t use retirement just like most of the people who use this opportunity to fully explore and even to rest.
After a short time of being retired, Bostick started to have a new career. He decided to work as a train driver, but not for people, for DOGS! He is 80 years old, from texas, and spent his retirement days to create the coolest train on the planet. He decided to create this train to take neighborhood stray dogs for trips of adventure.
Bostick said that he never had plans for this before retirement. He also did this after he saw how many heartless people just choose to be cruel and to abandon their dogs, and other heatless people who don’t even try to help them out. So, these people are left alone on the streets with no help.
“We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn,” “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.”, Bostick told The Dodo.
Over the years of his retirement, he rescued a lot of dogs, gave them a warm place to live in, food, and unconditional love. Then, he did this amazing thing to keep them happy and entertained.
Although the dogs are provided a wide place in the farm to wander freely, Bostick still wants them to see wider places. However, he knows that this number of dogs will be extremely hard to maintain in walks. So, he chose this cute way to take them out.
“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,’” “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.”, he told The Dodo.
Just. Like. That!
Bostick takes dogs for these trips once or twice a week, they go through the calm streets of the town and woods near the house. This act of kindness made the dogs very happy with their new lives.
“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, “The dogs have a great time. They just really enjoy it.”
