We think it’s the prudent play here to start by acknowledging that the pet parents of this prairie dog named him Swarely. Let’s just get the awesome out of the way early, shall we? We mean, honestly, the fact that this family is comprised of two prairie dogs, two foster ducklings, and a very gentle Labradoodle is epic enough, but christening one of the little darlings after Barney Stinson’s misspelled nickname from the crazy-eyed barista on How I Met Your Mother just takes this to the next level.

This adorable quintet has taken Instagram (and Vine) by storm, with 36.6K followers. Can you blame people? The goings on of such an unlikely combo of beings can’t help but bring a little daily joy.

We also think you should know that that aside from naming their dog Biscuit and posting positive messages about the rewards of sharing your life with a senior dog, which is fantastic, the ducks go by the names Halpert and Hugh Quackman. Seriously, you guys, this duck’s name is Hugh Quackman. Today is an excellent day to be alive.

Their naps are cuter than yours are. Guaranteed.
