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.

July 8, 2008


After the first initial shock of walking on sand Harry became more and more confident on the beach and started to think of it as his own personal playground. He was quite happy to spend a leisurely afternoon or evening mooching around, investigating every piece of flotsam and jetsam that could be found.

Examining seaweed

Everything had to be sniffed at and prodded with his paws and then put in his mouth for further examination. Shells and pebbles were always examined thoroughly and tested for crunchability, but seaweed was definitely his favourite, especially the long stringy bits which he loved to carry round. On one occasion though, Harry’s natural curiosity did get him into trouble. The scuttling crab than ran right in front of him didn’t take too kindly to being picked up – Harry dropped it with amazing speed and a look of total horror on his face. We’re still not quite sure who got the biggest shock – Harry or the poor crab.

Occasionally pieces of driftwood would be tested out and crunched, but sometimes they were just too big – even for Harry.
