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 has always been fascinated obsessed by stones, it was the first of his unique personality traits that he developed.

Harry and his pebbles - aged 3 months

On any given evening we’ll find a minimum of three stones deposited on the rug in the front room. We have no idea where he gets them from, or how he gets them in there without us noticing. Harry has become very wily when it comes to his stones – he’s learnt how to carry them in his mouth with his jaws clamped shut, occasionally there’ll be a giveaway lump sticking out the side of his mouth, but most of the time he gets them past us.

Another one of Harry’s personality traits is stubbornness. He just doesn’t know when to give up, and he was certainly not going to give up with this stone. He wanted it and he wanted it really badly. His dogged determination was astonishing, he tried every which way to pick it up but it was just too big, even for him.
