The Good News: 80-Year-Old Man Rescues Strays, Builds Them a Train [VIDEO]
"Whenever they hear me hooking the tractor up to it, man, they get so excited. They all come running and jump in on their own. They're ready to go."
Eugene Bostick has a horse farm on a dead-end street in Texas. He started to notice that people would come to his end of the street to abandon their unwanted dogs, so he and his brother decided to take the strays in.
"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,'" Bostick told the Dodo. He uses the makeshift train to take the dogs through rides through the streets or the nearby forest.
Last year, he made the local news for taking the dogs for a ride through a local golf course. Bostick says it's great not only for the dogs, but for his family.
"Well, I’ve been feeding the wildlife for over 30 years here, and I’m going to live another 30," he said. "I’m only 86! My wife said if I didn’t get up and do this I’d be dead. And I really would."
We. Are. Dying. This is some really cute good news.
