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.

September 5, 2008


Over the last day or two a lot of people have told us that Harry seems to have grown just in the last week. While it’s difficult for us to comment as we’re with him every day, it does seem as if he’s all legs at the moment, sometimes even he doesn’t seem to know where they are and he ends up like Bambi, with all four of them going in different directions at the same time.

This prompted us to look back at some of the earlier photos of Harry, to see if he’d been through a ‘leggy’ stage before, or whether things had always grown in proportion (with the exception of his ears, of course, as they’ve always been huge), and we came across this one taken way back on 30 April.

Looking out the window on tiptoe

Harry has always been the most inquisitive of pups and loves to see what’s going on, he always watches whatever it is we’re doing, even if it’s something as mundane as peeling potatoes.  When there’s nothing happening inside the house he will turn his attention to the world outside and just watch. He’s always on the look out for something, anything that might be interesting, it could be a car, a pedestrian or even a bird, it doesn’t really matter to Harry, he just likes to watch.

Now though, Harry finds it a whole lot easier to look out of the window, no longer does he need to balance his front paws on the window sill. In fact, after he’s been there a while he’s even been known to rest his chin on it.
