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.

On Friday Harry had a very special appointment. He’d been invited to attend the official Foundation Stone laying at the site of the new Guide Dog Training School in Atherton, near Bolton.

The site is still under construction and we were all required to wear high visibility jackets and hard hats, except they didn’t seem to have one in Harry’s size.

New GD Training School

This is the Training School that Harry will eventually attend and where he’ll learn all the skills necessary to become at qualified Guide Dog. Hopefully Harry will be one of the first pups to attend the new centre.

Foundation Stone

The Foundation Stone was laid by the Culture Secretary, the Rt. Hon. Andy Burnham, MP.  Harry, never one to miss an opportunity to have his photograph taken, was more than happy to pose with him (pictured right) for the press photographers.

And Harry’s fee for all this hard work?  He had a new, well deserved, roasted bone when he got home.
