Eugene Bostick has a 'Dog Train' that he uses to take his rescue dogs on trips about town. He came up with the idea when he saw someone use a similar contraption to transport rocks. The carriage is made up of plastic barrels that have been cut to allow room for the dogs. They are set onto metal frames with wheels, which are all interconnected and pulled by Bostick's tractor.

The 80-year-old retiree from Forth Worth has a farm on a dead-end street, which he's shared with his brother Corky since the 1940s. People often dump their dogs on his land, leaving them to starve. Bostick takes these dogs in and cares for them, and although they have plenty of land to run around and play on his farm, he thought it would be fun to take them on field trips outside the farm.

According to Bostick, the dogs absolutely love it:

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.

Bostick has also attained a bit of a reputation around town: 

This is the coolest guy he rescues stray dogs and every morning he takes them for a train ride by our building, i finally got the courage up to ask if I could take his pic! Love this and had to share!
