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 – 51 weeks

At the start of this week Harry was still on holiday and although he was visiting different shops, cafes and garden centres in a different town, he still remembered all his training and behaved really well.

Harry was also having lots of fun on the beach, especially when some friends came to visit us and he found a new playmate – someone that was prepared to paddle in the sea with him and wave large bits of seaweed around for him to chase after.

Once we got back home, the first thing Harry did was charge straight through to the kitchen, where he threw himself down on his bed with a sigh. We could almost hear him thinking “Ah, there’s nothing quite like my own bed!”

Harry settled back into his normal routine with no problem at all,  we thought he might miss going for a free run on the beach every day, but it didn’t happen. He was more than happy to go on his training walks and really enjoyed being out and about in town again, especially when it meant travelling by train.

This week we also took Harry on a visit to see our previous pup Alfie who qualified with his owner back in July. Although they had never met before they got on really well, and hopefully Harry picked up a few hints and tips from him.

Of course, being back home meant that he got to see his pal, Guide Dog pup Blaze. She is starting to look so grown up now and has a habit of tilting her head in a very flirty kind of way. Sometimes it almost looks as though she’s fluttering her eyelashes – a fact that is not entirely lost on Harry.
