WATCH: Woman captures dog riding her one-eyed pony on its own
A woman in Missouri was greeted by an unusual sight when she came into her driveway one evening.
Callie Schenker, who cares for two horses — one a colt and the other a pony — spotted a dog atop the latter that night.
“I can’t make this stuff up!!!” she said in a Facebook video where Cricket the one-eyed pony trots, while a Corgi sits still on his back. The dog even looks back when he sees her videoing them.
I can't make this stuff up!!!So we pull back in our driveway tonight and this is what we see. This is not our dog! But apparently him and Cricket the one eyed wonder pony are best friends. I'm stealing the dog, new circus act!💁🏼💁🏼ATTENTION!!! STOP sending friend request!! I will not be accepting any of the over 500 request I've gotten!! I do not know you people!!Also, the dog is my neighbors. He randomly shows up. I guess I just caught him riding my people at the perfect time! The dog didn't get hurt! No the dog is not abused at his home, he just likes to travel the rural area we live. Cricket is fine, he lost his eye along time ago in an incident that had nothing to do with the dog! I DID not put the dog on the pony! Honestly I was pulling in my drive way from going to Mcdonalds when I seen this happening. I'm lucky I even got the video because my phone was nearly dead. I didn't have any intentions of his video being viral. I just post a funny video I thought my friends would enjoy. I'm glad everyone got a good laugh out of this.🐴🐴UpDate! I want to read comments but I can't because they come in so fast. Everyone is more than Welcome to join the new page "Cricket and Pals". I will have more videos and pictures there. https://youtu.be/NRlMViH8yCM

The video has amused many a netizen with over 5 million views since it was uploaded on Feb. 1. It has also been shared 90,000 times as of this writing.
“I’m stealing the dog, new circus act!” she joked on the post.
However, she insists she did not put the Corgi, a neighbor’s dog, on Cricket, and that it isn’t the first time she spotted the unique friendship.
Two days prior to the video, she shared a photo of her horses with the small dog standing on Cricket, looking like he was ready to jump.
After some comments of concern, she disclaimed in her post, “The dog didn’t get hurt! No the dog is not abused at his home, he just likes to travel the rural area we live.” She also clarified that Cricket’s having one eye was not due to the dog.
She told the Springfield News-Leader that the Corgi belongs to neighbors whom she isn’t familiar with. She mentioned that they are Mennonites and rarely go online, so they probably have yet to find out that their dog has gone viral.
The dog is a regular in her household. She mentioned that it enters her house through the doggie door and munches on her own dogs’ food. JB
