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.

Leaving Harry

Over the weekend Harry wasn’t exactly his normal self. This morning he had a touch of diarrhoea so we made an appointment for the vet. We duly attended at the appointed hour but we weren’t ready for what happened next.

Not such a happy pup

During the examination Harry showed signs of being very tender around the abdomen –  so tender in fact, that the vet expressed a desire to x-ray him immediately. He was worried that Harry had eaten something he shouldn’t have and it was causing an obstruction. The vet led us through all the possibilities – stones, toys, pieces of bone, he even asked us if we had any socks missing.

We had to leave Harry at the vets as he needed to be sedated for the x-ray. We weren’t sure what would happen next – it all depended on what they found.

So we went home without him, to sit and wait for the phone call. And count our socks.
