Wednesday Zen Moment: Dog riding pony in Missouri is the best thing on the internet

This dog and this pony have zen down to a science.

Callie Schenker not only witnessed it the other night, but took a video of her neighbour’s Corgi atop her mini horse.

The Bolivar, Missouri woman then posted it online.

“I can’t make this stuff up!!!” she wrote on Facebook, where her 15-second video has more than 5 million views.

“So we pull back in our driveway tonight and this is what we see,” she added. 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!”


Naturally the video is creating a lot of laughs and raising a lot of questions.

“Also, the dog is my neighbors,” Schenker wrote. “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.”

And now that Cricket and the littlest hobo have gone viral, the adorable horse has his own Facebook page: Cricket and Pals.

You’re welcome.

Exactly what the world needs now. Dog and pony love. Cricket and Pals/Facebook
