Rocker Noel Gallagher's teenage daughter has appealed to the owner of a dog kennel named after Oasis' hit album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? to cease breeding the animals.
Dog breeder Ville Kormilainen recently revealed he and his partner at Glory Morning kennels in Helsinki, Finland had been granted permission to use the Oasis-themed name and planned to call a litter of Labrador retrievers they are expecting next year (15) after their favourite Oasis songs, such as Live Forever and Champagne Supernova. However, animal rights activist Anais Gallagher has now reached out to Kormilainen in an open letter, asking him to reconsider his breeding business in favour of promoting the adoption of abandoned pets, reports NME.com.
The 14 year old, Noel's daughter with ex-wife Meg Mathews, cites health fears for the selectively bred dogs, revealing she has experienced her own issues with her Boston terrier. In the message, sent on behalf of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), for which Anais is a spokesperson, she writes, "I love dogs and would do anything for my Boston terrier, Oscar. But after seeing the health problems that Oscar has grown up with ever since he was a puppy, just because he came from a breeder, I am now completely against dog breeding... "On behalf of Oscar and all the other wonderful dogs who don't have anyone to speak up for them, 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."
