Video game artist Alexandria Neonakis has delighted internet users the world over by sharing texts from her adorable father after he had his first alpaca encounter in Peru. Neonakis's father, a former Greek goat farmer, was charmed like so many people by the alpacas' soft fleece, weird smiley underbites, and long huggable necks. When you read his texts, you'll feel like you're discovering alpacas for the first time all over again.
