Look, I tried to write something about Minnesota’s 80-56 loss to Indiana. I gave up on that because repeated sighs look very stupid when you type them out. So we’re back to puppies. Belated puppies. Before we get there, I’m going to leave this for those who actually came to this post for basketball #content.

And here is a moment of basketball and puppy synergy. As you can see from the box score, Minnesota played like the way this video ended.
I thought it'd be cool to show off my dogs athleticism, until I realized he had no self control... ♂️ pic.twitter.com/9sFvlTU7zm— Ro (@UpNcomin_Ro) February 9, 2018
To brighten the mood, here is a corgi riding a one-eyed pony.
WATCH: A woman from Missouri walked out of her house to find a corgi riding a pony. Yes, you're reading this correctly a CORGI RIDING A PONY! WHAT IS GOING ON?!?! More news >> https://t.co/ASlfICmdRx pic.twitter.com/nOBRNbqE6F— WAFB (@WAFB) February 7, 2018
A dog riding a one-eyed pony into the night is a surely a spectacle that needs video proof. A Missouri woman made sure to get exactly that.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that Callie Schenker pulled into her driveway Thursday to the sight of her neighbor’s Corgi sitting on her horse, Cricket. She recorded a 15-second video of the pony trotting away into the darkness as the canine sits atop, looking at the camera.
The 22-year-old posted the video on Facebook with the message, “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.” The video has received 5.3 million views as of Tuesday morning.
Schenker says the Corgi’s owners are Mennonites who avoid going online, so they likely don’t know their dog is gaining internet fame.
Maybe I should become a Mennonite so I don’t have to pay attention to Gopher Basketball anymore.
