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.

Apologies to Harry, but just for once, today’s entry on the blog isn’t about him!

We returned from our trip to the Gala Day to some great news – our previous puppy Alfie has qualified. We’ve had a lovely card from his new owner, part of which reads:- I am now the proud owner of new Guide Dog Alfie. Alfie and I qualified on 22 July. Alfie is a wonderful dog, not only as a guide but also a great friend.

It’s a great feeling to know that all the hard work has finally paid off. It isn’t always easy, and sometimes the pups can drive you to distraction, but there’s a great deal of pleasure and fun to be had along the way.

It’s hard to believe that the bundle of fluff that arrived at Number 58 back in October 2006 is now a fully qualified and working Guide Dog.

So well done Alfie, here’s to a long and happy working life.
