A photo of Britain's Prince George has made animal rights groups angry. The photo was for the prince's third birthday. It shows him offering white chocolate ice cream to his pet dog. The charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), said Prince George was trying to be kind to his dog, but it wasn't a good thing to do. It said chocolate and ice cream are bad for dogs. The RSPCA said it did not advise others to do the same as George.

Some people said Prince George was not wrong. They said a three-year-old does not know what is dangerous for dogs. They also said the dog was not eating the ice cream. The RSPCA said: "It is lovely that Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog cool". It added: "We would advise pet owners to be [careful] when giving their dogs food meant for [humans]." Chocolate poisons dogs, and can kill them. Ice cream is bad for their stomach.
