A woman managed to record the moment she found her neighbor’s dog riding her pony.

22-year-old Callie Schenker of Halfway, Missouri, wrote about her experience on Facebook

Schenker posted the video and wrote: “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!”

The video went viral, and Schenker received many comments and friends requests from people who wanted to see more videos of the animals.

Schenker became overwhelmed by the positive reaction her video received but she refused to befriend people she doesn’t know.

She wrote: “Stop sending friends requests! I will not be accepting any of the over 500 requests I’ve gotten!! I do not know you, people!

“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.”

Schenker also said that people began to show up at her and her neighbor’s homes to check out the animals.

“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 a long 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 into my driveway after going to McDonald’s when I saw this happening. I’m lucky I even got the video because my phone was nearly dead. I didn’t have any intentions of this video being viral. I just posted a funny video I thought my friends would enjoy. I’m glad everyone got a good laugh out of this,” she explained in her facebook post.
