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.

Weekly update – 27 weeks

This last week has been pretty hectic for Harry.

Settled in to watch the golf

After his day out at the Country Club to watch the golf, the following day he was invited to visit the Head Office of an Insurance company. This trip was full of new experiences for Harry, on arrival there were sliding glass doors which made quite a loud whooshing noise as they opened, then there was a very highly polished floor in reception. Harry had difficulty sitting on it as his feet kept slipping, so he took the easy option and lay down.

This was followed by turn-stiles, similar to those found on London Underground. We expected Harry to be a little nervous of them but he sailed straight through, although he was very curious about the click, click, click noise they made as they turned. Then we had to take the lift – Harry is no stranger to lifts but this was the first time a lift had been crowded and full of people. Harry strode straight on, full of confidence, knowing that he would get lots of attention from the people on board. He was so excited and his tail wagged so much we had to turn him round quickly so it didn’t get trapped in the doors.

Harry then left home for a few days, and went to stay with another Puppy Walker, while we made a trip up north. We’re not altogether sure what Harry got up to while he was away, and he certainly isn’t telling, but he was tired when he got back home – he slept like a log for hours. He’d obviously had a very exciting time.

Now he’s back home it’s back to his normal routine – let’s hope he doesn’t find it too boring.
