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 – 60 weeks

Harry continues his love affair with public transport so this week we have taken him into town at every available opportunity, usually on the bus. He really enjoys his bus rides, but most of all he enjoys all the hustle and bustle of the bus station.

Harry used to be fascinated by the pigeons that frequent the area, but now he’s learnt to practice self control and ignore them. He doesn’t want to chase after them anymore, but he still insists on giving them the hard stare, trying his best to intimidate them. And it usually works.

Although Harry is older now and has much more stamina, he still sometimes needs to grab a little power nap whenever and wherever he can. He has perfected the art of snoozing in some of the strangest of places, but earlier this week we think he found what looked like one of the most uncomfortable positions ever, but he didn’t really seem to mind.

On a visit to a coffee shop he quickly settled himself under the table as usual then propped his chin on the wooden bar at the bottom of the table so that he had the perfect view of everything going on. A few minutes passed and then the low rumbling noise started, it seems Harry was so comfortable that he’d fallen fast asleep and was snoring very loudly just to prove it.
