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.

Harry recently received a unexpected present from another puppy walker – the most enormous bone we’ve ever seen.

Last night, after a spell of obedience work, we gave him this gigantic treat. We fully expected Harry to smack his lips and plunge straight in, but instead he approached it as if it were an alien from outer space.

After circling it a few times, he barked at it once, lay down and eyed it very cautiously. After a while he wriggled closer to it but continued to stare at it suspiciously, as if it would disappear if he so much as blinked. Closer and closer he crept, until eventually his nose was almost touching it.  And there he stayed for quite a while, just staring at it, totally overwhelmed by his good fortune. Finally, he could contain himself no more and dived in, totally delirious with pleasure.

Harry remained in a state of total rapture for over 2 hours, only raising his head a couple of times to check we were still in the room. Not that he really cared.
