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.

Just an ordinary walk

Yesterday as we went for one of Harry’s regular walks around the village we came across some workmen planting a new lamppost in the pavement. Our way was completely blocked by the new lamp lying horizontally on the pavement so we prepared to cross the road.

The workmen smiled and indicated that we should wait – they would use the crane on the back of the truck to clear the way for us. The machine whirred and clanked as it hoisted the lamppost into a vertical position and Harry stood transfixed watching it all the way, until his head was tilted back as far as it would go.

Then as a good Guide Dog puppy should, he walked on as if he saw this kind of thing happen every day.
