Happy Wednesday! How about the most adorable story in the history of the Internet to get you over the hump?
Meet Eugene Bostick, a retired man from Fort Worth, Texas who not only dedicates his golden years to helping abandoned dogs, but he built the most amazing mode of transportation to take his furry family around town.
His rescue operation started as an accident, according to his interview with The Dodo.
"We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn," Bostick said. "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."
The pups have plenty of room to run and play on Eugene's farm, but he wanted a way to take them out around town for little adventures. Walking all those dogs would be taxing for anyone, let alone an 80-year-old retiree. A solution presented itself to him randomly one day, and the idea for the cutest thing on the planet was born.
"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,'" he 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."
Now once or twice a week, Eugene will take the nine dogs he's currently caring for on trips around town. It's a "walk" the dogs now look forward to every single time they see him bust out the dog train.
