Daughter Teaches Dad How To Selfie, Doesn’t Expect Him To Become Internet Sensation

There’s nothing cuter than old folks learning to use technology and giving it their best shot. This just recently happened to a sheep farmer in Walcha, Australia, who was introduced to the ubiquitous selfie by his daughter, and proceeded to have way too much fun with it.

In a series of photos originally posted to the ‘Cool Dog Group’ Facebook page, then spread around the Internet, the man can be seen working the front camera with two supremely photogenic dogs, and even a sheep. It’s so innocent and pure, it’s bringing smiles to everyone who lays their eyes on it. Can we just go live on this guy’s farm and take selfies with all his adorable animals, please?

Though the story seems to have been confirmed by the man’s goddaughter, we’re still looking for more information about him – and possibly more selfies! If we have any sleuthing detective pandas in the audience who have additional info to offer, drop it in the comments. In the meantime, enjoy these wholesome, heartwarming photos, and share them with anyone who needs a pick-me-up today.

Here’s what the Internet had to say

All are having way too much fun - STOP IT! The dog cute and precocious, the sheep charismatic and the Farmer looks a lot like Jack Thompson - very suave.

We have 5 Blue Heeler dogs, horses, Highland cows and sheep, on the farm. These photos are fantastic. Lol,as an old farmer, l'll have to try taking some selfies with some of my animals. Thank you for the inspiration.

See, dogs have spent so much time with mankind they now know to smile and pose for selfies. Even the sheep is catching on, or the dog is telling it what to do.

"There’s nothing cuter than old folks learning to use technology" is extremely offensive.

My dad's recent discovery of emojis, and the consequent onslaught of emoji-filled texts i receive from him, is cute. I know, it's all the rage to be offended by everything, but pick your battles

I think he's cute...is he married? ;-) I am a she farmer too....only in the US...just had a leg o lamb for lunch!!! I don't think he is old...I wish people wouldn't judge how 'old' we 'seniors' are as they talk like 50' and 60's are ancient...not anymore!!!

Bored Panda: This is so insulting to "old" people. First, the guy isn't all that old. Second, there are plenty of "old" people who keep up with technology just fine. Stop perpetuating this stereotype of old, cute, and clueless.
