Best In Show Daily delivers a pair of reports on Day Two judging at Crufts. Senior Editor Bo Bengtson reports from the floor with news of the winners from the Toy and Utility Groups, and Senior Editor Christi McDonald delivers her “Fancy That” highlighting the dogs that made the cut. Meet the King Charles Spaniel (English Toy Spaniel) and Tibetan Terrier that will advance towards Best in Show.
Bo continues his conversation with Ronnie Irving, former chairman of the Kennel Club in England, to talk about the veterinary examinations that took place at shows last year in the U.K. The results among the fourteen high profile breeds under scrutiny seem to suggest that health tests could have a positive effect on the welfare of purebred dogs and the public perception of them. Find out the pass rate of more than 300 vet checks conducted in 2012.
