Dachshund-loving but dog-eating Danish Prince Henrik has had to recall his expensive French wines due to cork problems. Of course, the wine issue pales compared to the controversy he faced last year when he announced his fondness for dog meat, which he says tastes like rabbit and he learned to appreciate in Vietnam.
Henrik, who is the honorary president of the Danish Dachshund club, has even penned poems to his doxies. In a book published in 2005, he compared his dachshund Evita’s paws to wings, writing:
I love to stroke your coat and to see how it shines
You dear, you special dog….
You receive me with papal pride
