Dogs and cats are so passe. Goldfish? Lame. A duck is the pet you want.

You may very well agree with that after watching this heartwarming video. Nibbles, a pet duck, is uber-excited when his owner, Jonny, gets off the school bus.

By the time Jonny gives Nibbles a peck on the bill, we're pretty sure your heart may explode.

What a nice way to be greeted after a long day of hitting the books, right? And kudos to Jonny for not banishing Nibbles to the backseat. He's simply too excited to be separated from the boy, even for another few seconds.

Let's just hope they were all buckled up by the time the car pulled away. Safety, first, after all.
