I truly wish that all old people would be like this guy. He doesn't complain, he doesn't whine and regret. Instead of all of this, he decided to be creative. And what he created is something good, funny and joyful at the same time.

Eugene Bostick built a train for rescued stray dogs, and he is the conductor of that strange vehicle.

Eugene lived with his older brother (that is 86 year-old) on their farm in Fort Worth since the early 1940s. When he retired 15 years ago, he decided to do something about stray dogs' problem that was getting bigger. Like he says, "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. But since the brothers are good people, they decided to do something about it. "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", he adds.

At some point, they reckoned that they would like to go to town with the rescued puppies. But since it's kind of challenge to walk with so many dogs, they created a "train" from a tractor and bunch of plastic barrels that Eugene modified. 

His neighbors love him and he, together with his brother, became the local attraction. The dog train runs now regularly every week, with a special cargo of nine cute dog puppies being carried to the town, straight from Eugene's farm.

"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," resumed Eugene.
