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.

Poorly Pup

Harry’s conjunctivitis was only the start. A day later he started sneezing, seven or eight sneezes at a time and then about an hour after that his nose started running, it was like tap that hadn’t been turned off properly – it just dripped. We made a quick call to the vet to see if this was a reaction to the eye drops and we were asked to take him in straight away.

Our vet (a lovely chap) gave Harry a thorough going over and pronounced that he had an infection similar to a severe head cold. Then he looked at Harry’s mournful little face with his runny nose and changed his diagnosis. Actually, he said sympathetically, it’s probably more like the flu. Man-flu.

Over the weekend Harry slept an awful lot, most of the time snuggled up to Fred and his favourite piece of blanket. When he wasn’t sleeping, he moped aimlessly around the house, looking very sorry for himself. Just like a man.
