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 – 47 weeks

Last week it appeared that everywhere Harry went he was surrounded by Christmas events. This week he hasn’t even seen a bit of tinsel, but he has seen snow.

Harry’s training walks went out the window the day the snow arrived, he was much too giddy and excited and it was so slippery underfoot, that even he was having trouble staying upright.

The week hasn’t all been about play though, Harry’s also managed to squeeze in his regular trips to town, attended both a Pilates class and a Girl Guide meeting and travelled on the train a few times to visit his favourite coffee shop.

Harry would probably say that the snow was the highlight of his week, but he also had a great day at out the laying of the foundation stone at the site of the new Guide Dog Training School in Atherton.

Harry behaved perfectly as he met all the dignitaries, although he was a bit disappointed that they didn’t seem to have a hard-hat in his size.

Harry loved all the fuss and really enjoyed meeting some working Guide Dogs, especially Kemp who was there with his owner Geoff Cope. As usual, as soon as a press photographer appeared Harry adopted the perfect pose and looked straight at the camera.

Next thing you know, he’ll be wanting us to hire him an agent.
