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 – 28 weeks

This last week has been more routine for Harry than the previous one, with lots of trips to town and the supermarket, the pet shop and frequent visits to coffee shops and the odd ride on a bus.

His last ride on the bus was a little bit fraught though, as the bus driver went round a roundabout a little too fast. Unable to hang on Harry slid across the floor ending up very near to the door. We thought it might freak him out a bit, but he just stood up, gave a quick shake and settled himself back down next to the seat, albeit a lot closer.

At the weekend Harry had his longest car journey yet when we travelled down to the Guide Dog Gala Day, but he coped really well and behaved beautifully at our stop on the motorway services.

He really enjoyed his trip away, especially as he got to sleep in the same room as us at the hotel. We thought he would want to play all night so we weren’t expecting to get much sleep, but as soon as we put out the light he settled down and we didn’t get a squeak out of him until 7.00 the next morning – when someone in the hotel slammed a door and woke us all up.

Harry’s best bit of the week has to be the Gala Day and all the different experiences he had there, but the highlight of the whole trip must be the rosette he won.  He was just so pleased with himself.
