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 – 37 weeks

Harry’s been back to the vet this week – the redness on his neck still hasn’t cleared up despite taking antibiotics for 10 days. It doesn’t seem to bother him, but we need to get to the bottom of it, so the vet is going to do some further investigation in the next couple of weeks.

As well as supervising all the workmen that have been in and out of Number 58 this week, Harry has still managed to find time to squeeze in his regular outings. He’s had free runs, been out to lunch, on the train a few times, had a trip to the supermarket and on a shopping expedition.

Harry has always had a thing about leather. He just loves it. If anyone is wearing leather shoes he’ll edge along furtively towards them so he can rest his chin on their shoes, and if given the chance, he’ll fall fast asleep on them while breathing in the scent. With this in mind we thought he’d really enjoy a visit to the handbag section of a department store. But no, just like most men, he was totally bored by the whole experience.
