# Dog Train

September 22, 2019

Dogs love to ride in the car with their head sticking out the window. Looks like they love riding trains, too. Eugene Bostick, an 82-year-old man in Texas, built a dog train that he pulls with his tractor. He takes care of dogs he finds who don’t have a home. When he had just a couple, they’d ride in the tractor with him. But now there are too many dogs to fit in his lap. So he connected a bunch of blue carts, and ta-da, we have a dog train!

Wee ones: What shape are the tractor wheels?

Little kids: If there’s 1 dog in each cart, how many dogs are in front of the 7th dog? Bonus: If there are 8 carts and you ride in the 5th one, how many dogs are behind you?

Big kids: If the dogs ride every 4th day starting on Sunday of the 1st week, in what week do they get to ride on a Tuesday?  Bonus: If the dogs ride twice a week, how many rides do they get in a 52-week year?
