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.

More snow

We were expecting to wake up to an awful lot more snow this morning, but it didn’t happen. Instead, the snow we did have, was frozen solid.

Harry’s paws have been taking bit of a bashing from all the snow and grit, but we found a solution in the pet shop. It’s a wax based product and all Harry has to do is stick each paw in the tin once before we go out and they’re protected. It also seems to give him a bit more grip on the icy pavements.

Harry did a training walk this morning, but because the snow is such an unusual event and because he just loves playing in it so much, he got an extra free run this afternoon.

He was a lot more confident in the snow today and galloped off ahead of us. When he got to the top of the hill he turned to check were still behind him and was all, “Come on humans, hurry up, I want to PLAY!”
