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 – 38 weeks

Harry has had a busy, but very different week this week.  In addition to his regular trips to town, the supermarket, the barbers and a few journeys on public transport, he’s also been on a trip to visit some friends who were staying in the area.

In order for us to get to the place they were staying we had to cross a ford, so we parked the car and decided to walk across. We thought Harry might be a little concerned about walking through running water, but not at all. Although he desperately wanted to play in the river, he managed to contain the urge to jump in, and trotted straight across.

His trip to the Guide Dog Training Centre in Bolton on Tuesday was also a new experience for Harry. He absolutely loved every minute, and really enjoyed meeting a few of the Guide Dog Trainers, some of who he’ll meet up with again when he moves on to the next stage of his training. Harry was delighted to have his photograph taken with them by the Press. He really can be such a poser sometimes.

His best bit of the day, and probably his whole week, was when he bumped into his pal Cindy. Harry used to play with Cindy when he was a very small pup, and just for a moment he didn’t recognise her – she looked so grown up and was wearing her training harness. When Harry suddenly realised who she was, he just couldn’t sit still and wriggled around until he finally managed to say hello, Cindy seemed pretty pleased to see him too.

Next week is definitely going to seem pretty boring in comparison.
