Harry is a Border Terrier. He was born in July 2000, and was named after Harry Potter. His pedigree name is Bramble Keeper. He enjoys walking, and playing games with golf balls and sticks and doing this blog.
Back in 2000 we got a puppy and called him Harry, and at the same time, unknown to us, our relatives in Hull, also got a dog and called him Harry. Sad to say that the other Harry passed away earlier this year, and Thomas, my nephew, made a collage as a Birthday present for his sister - which made her cry.
Thomas has also got a tattoo of the Other Harry's poor print as a lasting reminder.
We met a dog trainer at the Abingdon Wedding fair. She said that people often want dogs to take part in weddings. The most popular request is for the dog to walk down the aisle off the lead by themselves. They can also be dressed up like flower dog girls or as a ring bearer. Anything is possible with time, and a little training.
Lisa suggested we swap dogs. Lisa sometimes finds Noah, her dog, a bit of a handful , and thinks that Harry's calm temperament would make life much easier. So we have swapped for a trial period.
Just to say to anybody who is worried about the change - Lisa is one of the nicest people you could possibly meet and will take very great care of Harry. I will be able to visit him anytime to do the blog.
