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.

Weekly update – 35 weeks

Harry’s week has been full of excitement, from meeting the new pup Burley to going on holiday to the beach, and at times it’s all been a bit too much so he’s had to take an afternoon nap. Harry’s very particular about where he takes his naps, and if there’s a patch of sunlight somewhere, anywhere, he’ll find it. It might only be the size of a postage stamp, but he’ll claim it as his own.

Catching the sun

Harry’s also been out and about in a strange town visiting lots of shops, pubs, restaurants, and teashops, all of which were new to him. They were full of lots of new and interesting smells, but he behaved exceptionally well in all of them, despite all the attention he received. On one particular visit to a tearoom we sat in the corner where no-one could see him, so he inched his way across the floor until he was in view. He then lay there fluttering his eyelashes at the ladies on the next table, until eventually they noticed him, at which point he stretched out, turned his head to show off his best side, and was all ‘Oh aren’t I gorgeous, but of course you can’t stroke me, because I’m a Guide Dog Puppy in training!’ Harry can be such a diva sometimes.

Harry simply adores the beach and his highlight of the week had to be the very large stick he found, not the one he carried round for a while, but the one he couldn’t quite manage to pick up. Harry thought it was the biggest stick he’d ever seen, maybe even the biggest stick in the whole world!
