Neonakis, a 32-year-old from Southern California, told BuzzFeed News that this was the first time Dimitris had met an alpaca. After this meeting, she said her dad then went out of his way to meet other alpacas, like this one.

She said that she thought her dad's reaction was adorable and so she decided to share it with some friends on Twitter.

"I guess the rest of the internet also thought it was awesome," she said. Her tweet has since been retweeted almost 15,000 times.

Neonakis said she did not expect her dad to go viral at all, but added that Dimitris is the world's greatest dad.

She said, "I'm happy that the internet got to see a tiny moment of what we get all the time from this guy."
