Woman Catches Neighbor’s Corgi Secretly Riding Her One-Eyed Pony In The Middle Of The Night

Callie Schenker, a 22-year-old woman from Bolivar, Missouri, recently recorded a video that has already been watched nearly 6 million times at the time of writing.

On February 1, 2018, Callie posted a video of her neighbor’s little corgi dog sneaking under her fence in the middle of the night — to ride one of her ponies.

You can’t make this stuff up!

Callie explained on the post, “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!”

Over 94,000 people have since shared the video, and it’s not too difficult to see why!

Despite the darkness, you can make out the face of a little dog as he sits happily on Cricket’s back. The tiny, one-eyed pony even trots away happily, not at all bothered by the dog’s little ride.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time this has happened, which means the corgi and Cricket must have an incredible friendship. Callie says she caught the corgi, who she believes might be named Roper, catching a ride on Cricket two days previously.

“Roper” also has a habit of coming over unannounced, coming through Callie’s doggy door, and eating her own dog’s kibble. Callie jokes that “Roper” can be “kind of a pain in the butt.”

Mostly, Callie is happy that people love the video, telling WTVR Channel 6, “I’m really glad everyone got a good laugh out of it — if they got a laugh from the actual dog, or a laugh from my laugh. I’m glad it’s something happy this time, instead of something sad in the news.”
