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.

Weekly update – 16 weeks

Today Harry turned 16 weeks old.

Harry’s weight continues to increase at a phenomenal rate, this week he’s gained 1.7 kg taking him to a staggering 19 kgs. His tail hasn’t grown much in length but it’s certainly getting thicker and can pack quite a punch if you stand in the way while it’s wagging. It’s a far cry from the puny little pipe-cleaner of a tail he had when he first arrived.

His obedience continues to be good, although he has a little trouble with ‘stay’. Harry is so desperate that he might miss out on his treat that he gets a bit excited and tries to follow as soon as we move away. He’s working hard on his self control though, and we’re sure he’ll get the hang of it in another couple of days.

There’s a bit of a mystery here at Number 58 at the moment. Over the weekend Harry’s baby teeth finally started falling out, first he lost his two front teeth at the top, and then yesterday the bottom two. Although we’ve searched high and low, and we’ve even looked under his bed in case he stashed them for the canine tooth fairy, there’s just no sign of them.

Harry’s latest obsession is mud. He loves lying in it or even digging in it, but best of all he loves rolling in it. Secretly though, we think he likes getting covered in mud because he gets brushed when it dries, and he absolutely adores being brushed.

Harry’s best bit of the week though, has to be the champagne reception he attended. Not because of the champagne or all the lovely people he met there, but because he got to see his pals Bracken and Teddy. He was just so pleased to see them.
