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.

Sammy Snake

Over the weekend we took Harry on a bit of a shopping spree, to his favourite place – the pet shop.

Apart from one or two of his existing toys he has outgrown them all. They’re either too small from him to play with, so he gets bored and frustrated, or they’re made from soft rubber which he could probably destroy in under 6 seconds. The ones designed especially for dogs to chew on have never really interested Harry, he’d much rather have his favourite bone.

First up we introduced Harry to Sammy Snake. This was Harry’s choice in the pet shop, the one he sniffed at while it was still on the shelf and the one he tried to get out of the bag as we walked across the car park. Sammy has proved to be a big hit, when we got home Harry carried him round the house for hours, not letting him out of his sight, not even for a moment.

Despite the fact that we gave it a good examination before we bought it, we still didn’t spot the one thing that Harry found as soon as he started to play.  It has a squeaker in it.  A very loud squeaker.  And Harry, of course, just loves the noise it makes.
