Their dog Lupo may be thousands of miles away at home, but Prince William and Kate Middleton have been far from starved for animal encounters.
The royal couple's tour of New Zealand and Australia has been filled with frequent furry meet-and-greets in the form of puppies, sheep and a wombat.
At the Sydney Royal Easter Show on Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on hand for a sheep shearing display where a ram named Fred made them smile by welcoming them with a gentlemanly bow. The royals fed Fred some yummy apples (above), and the press ate up Kate's playful joke: she suggested that her handsome husband cover his bald spot with a wig made of alpaca wool.

Prince Wiliam and Kate's three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand may have been intended to give the royals a look at an undervisited corner of their kingdom, but in the process it's also served as an official coming-out party for Prince George, the 9-month-old baby who will eventually rule the British Empire.
With his chubby cheeks, mop of wispy hair and impeccable sense of style, young George would be a cute baby even if he were a civilian. But the conflict between George's cherubic innocence and the vast (if mostly ceremonial) power he will eventually wield has led to a whole host of amusing GIFs imagining the boy's typical infant behavior as that of a megalomaniac boy king.
