This 80-year-old Man Builds a Dog Train to Take Rescued Stray Dogs on Adventures

This 80-year-old man lives on a 3-acre land in East Fort Worth, Texas. Eugene Bostick lives with his family, and his home is located on a dead-end street with a horse barn and ever since they lived there, people have dumped dogs in their land and have left strays there to starve or die.

They took countless animals and several stray dogs under their care, and after his retirement, Bostick and his family spent their time looking after the animals in their land. Every day, they feed the animals, take care of them, and take them to vet trips. Also, Bostick built a dog train to bring his pet friends out on adventures, and if that’s not the best retirement job in the world, then I don’t what else is.

Bostick is a lively and energetic man even in his 80s, but with so many dogs to take care of, he needed some sort of vehicle carry them on to go on trips. He came up with the idea of the train after seeing a guy driving a tractor with carts filled with rocks attached to it. The tractor inspired him to use the same concept for the dog trainer, so he took plastic barrels, cut them, put wheels underneath, and tied them together. Since he is a skilled welder, it wasn’t hard for him to bring his idea to life and the dogs love to read on the dog train.

After the initial excitement, when they bark a lot, they get quiet and look around for the entire ride. A usual ride lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, and they go along the Sycamore Golf Course, which is just at the back of the Bostick property.
Needless to say, every time the train passes by, golfers stop and take pictures of the happy bunch reading on the train.

People Share “Unwritten Rules” of the Society That Everyone Should Follow, and Here Are 20 of Them

In order for us to function in a healthy society, there’s a set of unwritten rules we have to follow. Those are one of the things that no school teaches you, and at some point, you have to learn that yourself. Some call them good manners, some call them rules, or maybe just common sense.

However you name it, society has a rule book that ‘forces’ people to behave and be good to one another. In order to do that you have to be aware of these “unwritten rules”. Therefore, today we will share some with you.

One Reddit user asked a question: “What is one ‘unwritten rule’ that you believe everyone should know and follow?” And there were quite some people who shared their wisdom with the internet. People were listing things that should be common knowledge but for some reason aren’t, and it’s about time everyone learned them.

When you have a complaint with a retail store or business, please remember that the person you are speaking too (or yelling at sadly) is just the one that happened to pick up the phone or is standing at the till. they likely have nothing to do with what went wrong and have little sway in what can be done to help. They don’t need to be yelled and screamed at for something they did not do or is under the control of a corporate office/higher up.- sebastianrileyt2
