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 – 52 weeks

Harry is just 2 days short of being a year old, and now weighs a mighty 36.2 kg – quite a difference from the 5 kg little ball of fluff that came to live with us last March.

Harry’s week started off really well with an overnight stay in a hotel in Leigh. He settled in really well, behaved well in the restaurant and loved going up and down in the lift. He made himself very much at home, both in our room and in the hotel bar – especially in the hotel bar.

Harry also had a couple of shopping trips in town and a trip into Leeds city centre. He loves going into the city as he really enjoys all the hustle and bustle, but mostly because he gets to visit the busy coffee shop in the station where he can lie under the table and watch the world go by.

Harry’s week started to go downhill a short while after when he developed a poorly tummy. An examination by the vet showed he was very tender, an x-ray and some blood tests followed, all of which proved inconclusive. Harry appeared to be feeling very sorry for himself for the next couple of days, he didn’t have a whole lot of energy and was sleeping an awful lot.

We did everything we could to try and make things easier for him and he got to travel in total luxury in the back of the car, complete with his duvet, towel and water bowl, while our weekly supermarket shopping perched precariously on the back seat.

It’s a dog’s life!
