It was a tense day for Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway and her family as one of their beloved dogs, the Labradoodle, Muffin Kråkebolle (translated to English: Muffin Sea Urchin), disappeared for several hours while the family was skiing at Furuholmen in Vestmarkanot.
Denne lille nydelige damen ble borte på skitur i ettermiddag. Hvis du, eller noen du kjenner har sett henne blir vi glade for beskjed. Hun ble sist sett ved Furuholmen i Vestmarka, ikke så langt unna Vestmarksetra parkeringsplass. Ta kontakt på telefon 22048700 hvis du har informasjon. Hun er veldig glad i mennesker og heter Muffins Kråkebolle. Hun er en ganske stor Labradoodle på 3 år. 💔 (Hun er merket med chip og har svart halsbånd).
Crown Princess Mette-Marit posted a photo of Muffin Kråkebolle on her Instagram profile with a plea for information on her whereabouts. She posted the phone number of the Royal Palace for people to call in with information.
“She is very fond of people…she is a pretty big Labradoodle, 3-years-old.”
While the family was skiing, Muffin Kråkebolle apparently decided to have a side adventure and disappeared. The Crown Princely Family noticed that Muffin was missing late afternoon and began searching for her.
Several hours later, Crown Princess Mette-Marit posted a photo of her 13-year-old daughter, Princess Ingrid-Alexandra, teary-eyed and hugging Muffin Kråkebolle, and captioned it, “My beautiful and wise man [Crown Prince Haakon] had fortunately left the car door open in the parking lot” and when the family was getting ready to search again, “we found her.”
According to Marianne Hagen, Communications Manager for the Royal Palace, Muffin Kråkebolle jumped into the open car and laid down.
Muffin Kråkebolle joined the Crown Princely Family in June 2013 and is one of the nine puppies that Milly Kakao, another of the family’s pets, gave birth to. Milly Kakao joined the family in 2009. She has joined Crown Princess Mette-Marit on several official functions, and the family regularly poses with her. The Crown Prince Couple’s pets even have their own album on the Norwegian Monarchy’s official website.
