Crufts - Day Two

We got more great material recorded at the second day of Crufts. We spoke to TV vet Marc Abraham, who is the co-founder of He and co-founder Andrew Seel are using the power of the Internet to let pet owners tell one another about businesses that are pet friendly. If you have a business you'd like to recommend, check out their awards. Marc is also the veterinary adviser to the Kennel Club, and you can find his blog on the Crufts site.

Marc was helping Jill Moss promote the right messages about MRSA and other serious infections on the Bella Moss Foundation stand. We caught up with Jill and she had some useful advice for dog owners worried about MRSA.

We also got a great interview with some of the Well Balanced Pup team, who had a new take on reporting on Crufts, and a DVD with lots of information about giving your pup the best start in life.

After being shattered yesterday I think I've hit my stride, and I think I'll be able to get through another two days! It's a lot of walking around, and it's tough going with the crowds, but of course it's worth it. Off to get a good night's sleep to be up bright and early for more of the same tomorrow.

Take care,
