Eugene Bostick may be retired, but that hasn’t stopped him from bringing some much-needed happiness and love to a group of abandoned animals.
Bostick lives on a dead-end street in Fort Worth, Texas where many people dump unwanted animals to fend for themselves. “We started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered,” Bostick told Dodo. “We made a place for them to live.”
The kind man would regularly bring the stray dogs along with him for rides in his tractor. As the number of animals began to grow, Bostick tried to think of a way to make all of his furry friends happy. “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. Whenever they hear me hooking the tractor up to it, man, they get so excited.”
Bostick’s amazing invention has made him the talk of his town and many people stop and take photos of him as he drives his dogs through the neighborhood. Attention isn’t important for Eugene, who only wants to bring as much happiness as possible to his pets while he still can.
“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.”
