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 – 67 weeks

This week Harry has been learning how to share. He has settled down well to life with another dog in the house, and no longer pesters Lacey to play with him all the time. The two of them get along really well, although Harry still bolts his dinner to try and get to Lacey’s bowl before she finishes, ever hopeful that he may get a second helping. There is little or no chance of that.

Harry loves to go out with Lacey especially in the car, when he is always such a gentleman and always allows her to jump in the back first. At least we like to think he’s being well mannered, but it’s more likely that he just wants to make sure she’s not going somewhere else and he’s not going to miss out on something more exciting.

For most of the week Harry has been busy with a farewell tour. He has attended his last Pilates class, made a last visit to the Girl Guides, visited the library and most of the local shops, so he can say goodbye to all the shop keepers who have been so patient and supportive over the last year or so. He’s even made one last visit to our favourite coffee shop in town, a place that he loves an awful lot, because he knows he has time for a quick power nap while we’re in there.

We’ve also had a fair few visitors who have called to see him one last time to wish him well before he sets off on his big adventure. Harry loves having visitors and has certainly lapped up all the attention.

The rest of the time Harry has spent doing the thing he loves best – chilling out, while trying to roast himself in the sunniest spot in the garden.
