The internet loves corgis—especially videos of corgis doing silly things. Usually, these videos don’t depict the jolly, short-legged dogs as particularly agile. But maybe we underestimated them.
A video captured by a 22-year-old woman in Missouri shows a corgi riding on the back of a pony. Excuse me, a one-eyed pony named Cricket. Callie Schenker says the corgi belongs to her neighbors, and the dog apparently snuck onto her property and befriended Cricket while all the humans weren’t watching.
News anchor Katy Andersen tweeted a link to the video on Wednesday, and it quickly spread across the internet. Over the last couple of days, the video was retweeted by more than 50,000 people on Twitter. If you watched the video, you probably have a few questions. How the hell did this corgi climb onto the pony’s back? Did the pony bow down? Did the corgi bounce from the fence to the pony’s back? Can the pony and the corgi communicate with each other?
It’s probably best not to think too much about the logistics of this video. Just enjoy it as a break from the daily soul-crushing news cycle. The internet is certainly enjoying it:
The viral tweet inspired others to post their own pets’ experiences at Target. Despite the happy images, people in the comments had mixed feelings on it.
Some kept asking if Zira was a service animal, while others believed it was unsanitary for her to be in the cart. But, negative comments aside, can we all agree and appreciate how happy some of these animals are?
