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 – 64 weeks

Harry has had another week of turmoil in the house – the builders have been back. Harry was delighted to see them and greeted them at the door like long lost friends.

This time, the work to be done was upstairs, so Harry’s bed in the kitchen was left undisturbed, but Harry wasn’t interested in his bed – he just wanted to help upstairs. He didn’t make a nuisance of himself, was totally unfazed by all the banging noises and was quite happy just to watch, but he had to be where the action was. He was so comfortable with what was going on that we half expected to see him passing tools to the builders when they were needed.

This week Harry also got to go on a brief trip to the Lake District where we met up with our previous pup Alfie. The pair of them had a great time together and Harry loved every minute.

Although Alfie is still only 2 years old, he is now a fully qualified working Guide Dog and appears to be so grown up. Harry was totally in awe of him and copied everything he did. On our walk in the afternoon Harry carefully watched Alfie cock his leg against a tree and then immediately copied him. This was a major milestone, as up until now Harry has still been curtseying like a girl and we struggled to stifle our cheers and amusement,

As far as Harry was concerned, this trip was definitely the highlight of his week, he even got to go swimming with his hero.
