Fans of purebred dogs in Sweden demanded the resignation of King Carl XVI Gustaf from an honorary post.
The owners of the four-legged were upset by the behavior of the monarch's daughter, Princess Victoria. A few months ago, she bought not a purebred dog, but a Cavapoo. This is a cross between a spaniel and a poodle. The Cavapoo is considered an ideal indoor dog, its coat does not cause allergies.
Nevertheless, the king's daughter was not appreciated in the Swedish Kennel Club. They believe that Karl XVI Gustav is even better off leaving the honorary post of the main patron of the club. Activists published an open letter criticizing the choice of the princess. According to representatives of the organization, they offered Victoria a purebred dog, but she refused.
The most radical dog breeders regarded her act as вЂњmockeryвЂќ.
вЂњWe are very sad that the Crown Princess is supporting mixed breeding,вЂќ they said.
At the same time, the choice of the princess was supported by a veterinarian with 30 years of experience, Andrea Bevilaqua. She drew attention to the fact that purebred dogs are more susceptible to diseases.
The owners of the mongrels resented the demands of the club members and called it вЂњcanine racism.вЂќ
