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.

City Boy

Harry went to the city today on a big adventure.

Harry has always been very noise sensitive and can still be a little skittish when there are loud noises he can’t immediately identify, so this was always going to be a testing time for him.

The station was heaving with people heading home from a music festival and there was some really noisy construction work going on, but Harry handled it all very well. He strode right through the station into the city centre just like a regular commuter, although he was more than happy when we stopped not far from the station for a coffee.

On his walk through the city Harry stayed alert and focused all the time and didn’t seem to give a hoot about all the people charging right in front of him as they rushed around during their lunch break.

Harry might have stayed cool, calm and collected while in the city, but when he got home he took to his bed and stayed there for the rest of the afternoon.
