As if living with Neil Patrick Harris weren’t A-List enough!

The How I Met Your Mother star’s adorable dog scored a hug from Oprah Winfrey when she stopped by the actor and partner David Burtka’s home to shoot a program for the OWN Network.

“Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, their dog Watson and me in their backyard,” Winfrey wrote about the photo she shared on Facebook Wednesday. “Interview for Next Chapter.”

Winfrey has a soft spot for dogs; the TV mogul has five at home, including golden retrievers Luke and Layla, cocker spaniel Sadie, and springer spaniels Sunny and Lauren.
