  Green Light for Crufts
Crufts again. Had she done it all wondered Mary Ann Nester?  Had she earned her seat on the settee with Ben Fogle on the box?

Never before had she worked on a stand - what some would call the plebeian face of Crufts! Time to notch up a new experience!

Janet Grenfell has worked with dogs in the past as an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) dog handler, but has never competed in agility. Last year Soraya Porter managed to talk her into scriming for her at a small independent show. Little did she know this was the thin end of the wedge. Next came the request for her to act as groom at Crufts. Not realising that this was not a job for the faint of heart, Janet agreed. Here is her account of her day as a Crufts Groom Virgin.
