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.

Travelling in style

Harry’s initial reluctance to travelling the car seems a long time ago, although in reality it’s only six weeks or so since his squawking deafened us on a regular basis, and he looked like this………..

In the boot

He now travels happily in the boot of the car and loves to take in the view from all three windows, which means that our supermarket shopping can get sat on or even trampled on. Up until now we’ve put the shopping on the back-seat, but the bags just never seem to stay upright, and we’re forever scrabbling around under the seats to locate stuff.

Now that Harry’s bigger he fits nicely into a special car-seat harness, which means he can travel safely ‘up front’ with the humans, and we get to reclaim the boot for our own purposes when we need it. We had a practice run over the weekend to see how Harry would adapt, but we needn’t have worried. He took to it like a pro and sat there, slap in in the middle of the back-seat, watching out the front windscreen.

No doubt it’ll only be a matter of time before he starts barking out orders and becomes a fully fledged back-seat driver.
