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 – 66 weeks

This week has been a huge week for Harry.

It’s been all about forging new relationships – first of all he had to deal with the fact that there is now another dog in the house. Lacey has come to spend her retirement here with us and Harry was delighted to see her, he couldn’t believe his luck – a four legged playmate all of his own, someone to share his toys with and someone who always says yes to a game of tug.

On the other hand, when Lacey sneaked into his basket while he was elsewhere he wasn’t so sure that her being here was good thing, but he soon got over the shock and just climbed in right beside her. There was plenty of room for two, but he did sulk for a few minutes.

Lacey’s arrival has been a huge learning curve for Harry – he was totally flabbergasted when she strode up to his toy basket and helped herself to a bone that was hidden in the bottom of it.  Harry has never been brave enough to put his head in and forage around for himself, but he has always been quick to copy and within five minutes he was routing around in the basket himself looking for his favourite toy.

Harry’s other big adventure this week has been getting to know Jenson – the pup he will share a kennel with when he goes off to training school. They had a free run in the park together and then lay quietly while the humans stopped for a much needed coffee and a chat.

The two of them had such a grand time running around together and played so much and so hard, we’re thinking they’ll be like human “freshers” and won’t be getting much sleep when they go off to “university”.
