FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- A Texas man has found viral fame not just for the unusual train-like trailers on his tractor, but for the dogs he takes for rides.
Eugene Bostick, 80, has become well known to residents of his Fort Worth neighborhood for the daily drives he takes in his tractor with a "train" of homemade plastic barrel trailers that each contain one of the rescue dogs he and his brother have adopted.
"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.' 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," Bostick told The Dodo.
