County commissioners narrowly approved a conditional use application for a longtime dog breeding kennel on…
Anais, the daughter of Noel Gallagher, has written to an Oasis-inspired kennel in Finland asking them to stop breeding purebred dogs.
Anaïs, the 14-year-old daughter of Noel and his ex-wife Meg Matthews, has joined People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in an appeal to dog breeders.
Glory Morning kennels in Helsinki plan to name a litter of Labrador retrievers they are expecting after their favorite songs from Oasis live forever and Supernova Champagne.
However, Anaïs and PETA want them to stop the selective breeding of dogs. In her letter, she says she is concerned about the health of the dogs and is worried about the number of unwanted dogs who cannot be housed.
She called on the breeders to go out of business, writing, “You can be a rock ‘n’ roll star for dogs by spaying and neutering your Labradors and promoting adoption instead.”
Here is Anaïs’ letter in full:
“Dear Mr. Kormilainen,
I was happy to read in NME that you were a big Oasis fan – so am I! Obviously. What is your favorite album? Mine is definitely maybe. I also read that you breed dogs and want to name your next litter of Labrador retrievers after your favorite Oasis songs. I wish you wouldn’t do that.
I love dogs and would do anything for my Boston terrier, Oscar. But after seeing the health issues Oscar grew up with since he was a puppy, just because he came from a breeder, I am now completely against breeding dogs.
Oscar had a cleft palate and was constantly sick. For the first few weeks after buying him, we had to take him to the vet almost every day for one problem or another. He got sicker and sicker and lost a lot of weight until he was so skinny you could see his bones. Mom and I were terrified he wouldn’t make it. When we took Oscar to see experts at the Royal Veterinary College, they told us that his stomach was not properly connected to his organs and that he had this problem since birth due to breeding! Poor Oscar had to undergo numerous operations just to be able to eat normally.
Since then, I’ve learned from my friends at PETA, who try to educate people about pedigree issues, that many dog breeds have health issues like Oscar’s. Labrador Retrievers are at risk for what’s called progressive retinal atrophy, which can cause them to go blind, Bulldogs suffer from respiratory problems that can become an emergency if they get too hot, and German Shepherds are prone to dysplasia. of the hip, which can paralyze them. It’s horrible to think about – don’t you agree?
But that’s not the only problem with herding dogs. In my country we have a big problem with homeless dogs, and I imagine you have them in your country too. There are millions of adorable and fun-loving dogs all over the world who live in animal shelters and are just waiting for someone to bring them home. Every time people buy a dog from a breeder or a pet store or even accidentally allow their own dog to have a litter of puppies, they are practically signing a death sentence for a dog in an animal shelter, which will not have never a home and a family. It breaks my heart to think of dogs being euthanized simply because there aren’t enough good homes for them, while breeders are producing more litters. Dog breeding is wrong as long as we kill animals that have no home.
In the name of Oscar and all the other wonderful dogs who have no one to speak on their behalf, please don’t produce any more litters. You can be a rock ‘n’ roll star for dogs by spaying and neutering your Labrador Retrievers and promoting adoption instead.
