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.

Gala Day

Over the weekend we travelled down to Warwickshire to attend the annual Guide Dog’s Gala Day at Stoneleigh Park. There were literally thousands of people and hundreds of dogs there.  The site was huge and seemed to go on for miles, with all sorts of things happening from display teams and live music, to a spectacular fly past from an RAF Spitfire. It was definitely the busiest and noisiest event Harry has ever attended.

We were a bit concerned that Harry might be a little overwhelmed by it all, especially as it was so hot, but he didn’t seem to mind one bit and had a great time. There were lots of huge trees and plenty of indoor areas so we took lots of breaks and sat in the shade. We had hoped to meet up with Harry’s mum Jazz and her owners but unfortunately on the day Jazz wasn’t too well so she didn’t make it.

We got over our disappointment quite quickly though – on a whim we entered Harry into one of the “Best in Show” classes and we were stunned but delighted when he won 2nd Prize for Best Condition Puppy (six months and over).

We always knew he was special – but now he has a rosette to prove it!
