1. This picture of two guinea pigs with a zest for adventure

Not only are these two pigs (who are named Sawyer and Linus — can you get any cuter?) ready to explore the Wild Wild West, but they're sure as shootin' going to look good while doing it.

2. This nonprofit that transports abandoned animals a whole lot of miles to ensure they find loving homes

Operation Roger matches truck drivers with abandoned or formerly abused animals; the truckers then transport the animals to new, happier homes — sometimes driving the whole way across the country in order to do so.

3. This dog who knows how to live it up on a sunny day

Unless your Memorial Day looked something like this, there's a decent chance you did it wrong.

4. This down-to-earth advice for recent graduates (and, well, everybody)

Two sociologists have some straight-shootin' advice for new grads, from "Don't worry about being single" to "Remember: If you change your mind, you're still right!" and everything else pertaining to work, house ownership, friendship, and life after college.

5. This koala who scampers up a young woman's leg (much to her surprise)

Maybe it mistook her for a tree. Maybe it just wanted to cuddle. Either way, it's absurdly adorable (and we're a little jealous).
