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.

Hot Dog

The last few days have been really warm, almost hot, and Harry has been feeling the effects. He has been lying on the wooden floor instead of his bed and munching his way through lots of ice cubes which have helped to keep him cool.

Late in the afternoon when the temperature hit 23ºC we decided to take him down to the river for the first time. The idea was that Harry could have a paddle and maybe a bit of a splash around in the water to cool down. Harry loves to splash around in puddles but the river was maybe a step to far. No amount of encouragement could get him in the water. It was just so big and he didn’t really know quite what to do. Besides, there were these strange creatures called ducks and they were sitting on the top of it, and even worse, they were watching him.

Now a Guide Dog puppy has to be pretty confident about almost everything, and Harry certainly wasn’t about to let those ducks know he wasn’t too sure about the river, so he turned is attention to the sand and began to dig. He made out that his sole purpose for being there was to dig and dig and dig some more. After a while the ducks lost interest in his digging and swam off, so Harry wandered over to the edge of the river and stuck a paw in. Then he turned round and was all, OK, I’ve done it, I’ve been in the river, so can I please go back to digging now?
