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.

Return to puppyhood

We’re not quite sure why, but today Harry reverted to the kind of behaviour he exhibited at 15 weeks old, except he’s now 15 months. It may be that he’s feeling overwhelmed by the amount of time he’s spent in the company of other dogs, or it could just be the spring weather has gone to his head, but whatever the reason he’s definitely behaving like a small puppy again.

And just to prove it, he took two of his favourite toys out into the garden and tried to bury them in the gravel under the seats,  just like he did when he was small.

Except now he weighs 36 kg and it was a pretty tight squeeze, back then he weighed about 10 kg and getting under the seat was an awful lot easier.
