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

Harry has been to the local railway station a couple of times to see the trains, but today was a big adventure – his first ride on a train. He was pretty laid back about the whole thing until it actually came to getting on. Having thoroughly examined the gap between the train and the platform he was just about to jump on when the booming voice of the internal speaker system gave out an automated announcement. Harry immediately decided that maybe commuting wasn’t quite his thing. The guard was very patient and waited while we tried to coax him on to the train but Harry still wasn’t sure. Eventually he had to be picked up and carried on – no mean feat considering his mighty 19 kg weight.

Help was at hand, however, at our destination. His best friend Goldie was waiting for him on the platform, and because she understood Harry was nervous, she obligingly jumped on and off the train a couple of times to show him how it was done. As Harry is desperate to do everything Goldie does he immediately jumped on the train after her, looked around and pretended there’d never been a problem in the first place.

When we got home he tried to show his appreciation in the only way he knows how.
