Picture of Harry

Hi. My name is Harry, I'm a Guide Dog Puppy in Training and this is my Blog.

Atherton Appeal

Harry supported Guide Dogs' appeal to equip the brand new training school for the North of England at Atherton. He was keen to help as he was to be one of the first puppies to train at the new school.

Harry was at the launch of the appeal on 7th October 2008 where he got to meet the Press. One of the newspaper articles can be seen here.

Commuter Pup – Part 2

Despite having had a bit of help the first time he travelled by train, Harry still has a distinct wariness about the whole thing. So today we enlisted the help (yet again) of his good pal Goldie to show him how it should be done.

Harry spends much too long looking at the gap between the train and the platform before deciding that he really doesn’t want to make the jump. Goldie is a seasoned rail traveller and was already on our train as it pulled into our station. Once the doors opened and Harry saw Goldie on the train there was just no stopping him from jumping on, and he was all, Gap? What gap?

Getting off wasn’t a problem today either. They both waited patiently for the doors to open and once Goldie had alighted Harry was eager to follow, totally oblivious of the gap. As we were at the end of the line and the train wasn’t going anywhere we asked Harry to jump on and then off again.

If there’s one thing Harry loves more than Goldie, it’s showing off in front of her.
