Harry sniffs out Methane

We were jolly excited when we heard that Scientists have found Methane Gas on Mars. Harry has also sniffed out methane in Abingdon. It is sometimes just about noticeable near these curved posts in Southern Town Park.

Harry in Church

Harry got into church when nobody was looking, and was spotted near the children's activity table in the welcome area.

Harry keeps his feet on the ground

The slogan is Spring into Action... Not Harry! He seems more grounded today, after the sudden media interest in his blog.

Page 3

Harry has now appeared on Page 3 of the Oxford Mail - sticking his tongue out. I hate to think what he will be up to next.

As Featured on BBC Radio Oxford

Harry was featured on BBC Radio Oxford with Malcolm Boyden this morning. I only hope Harry's head stops growing soon or he won't be able to get out the door to go 'walkies'.

Blue Monday

The gloomiest day of the year is how the BBC described today.

On today's doggy walk a big dog knocked Harry's mum over in the mud. Getting near home she could not find Harry's lead or the front door keys. It was cold, and it took three hours and many requests to find help. Poor Harry! He was really shivering, and blue.

Harry's new bowl

Harry's bowl got broken in an accident last night. He has had that same bowl since he was a puppy. Today I took Harry to our local pet shop to look at new bowls. There were a wide range, but in the end he got a brown one - like the old one.

Mother and Child 'and Dog'

This statue of 'Mother and Child' near Abingdon library is by Franta Belsky, and dedicated "In Memory of Margaret Belsky". Harry cannot understand why he is not going anywhere.

In Memorium

This bench at Otmoor has a very large plaque to say to whom it is dedicated. When Harry is gone we hope to dedicate a town centre water trough for dogs in his memory. It will say "For all the thirsty dogs of Abingdon irrespective of breeding or lack of it - from Harry."

That won't be for a long time I hope.
