Cute of the Week: Get On Board the Dog Train!

Okay, I feel like I overuse the phrase “this is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” but guys… THIS IS THE CUTEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!


I suppose this photo requires some explanation.  You see, living saint, Eugene Bostick, an 80 year old retiree, decided it wasn’t quite enough that he started to adopt the many stray dogs people would drop off on his dead end street.  No, that wasn’t exactly up to Eugene’s level of awesome.  Instead, he decided that on top of that he would build them a god damned dog train and drive them around on delightful adventures.

I mean… are you kidding me?  This is amazing!  Let me let Eugene tell it himself:

“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,” Eugene continued. “Whenever they hear me hooking the tractor up to it, man, they get so excited.”

I smiled SO WIDE while reading that entire paragraph.  “Dang, that would do for a dog train” is possibly the most adorable sentence ever uttered.  And I can’t help but feel like they don’t make guys like Eugene Bostick anymore -craft welders with a heart of gold, rescuing dog after dog and then building an adorable train to make them happy.  I mean, maybe they didn’t EVER make guys like that.  Maybe Eugene is the ONLY guy like that.  But anyway, I believe we should put him on the 20 dollar bill.  (NO ONE LIKES YOU ANYWAY, ANDREW JACKSON.)
