Irish Guide Dog Colouring in Competition!

We are delighted to announce that we now have a name for our Guide Dog Puppy in training! He now holds the grand title of ‘Henry Shadow Lucky’.

What a wonderful response we had to the competition! Congratulations and thank you to all the wonderful boys & girls who took part by colouring in and suggesting names for us.
The three prize winners were invited to meet with representatives from the Irish Guide dogs for the Blind to be presented with their prizes Phil Geoghan (a regular visitor who does amazing work fundraising for them) & Barbara Clear ( a board member of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind). They had a very difficult job picking the winning entries and they finally chose names that they believe suit the character of our puppy.
And the winners are……….

First Prize;Carly Hickey (6) who named our puppy Henry

Second Prize;Olivia O’ Reilly (11) who named our puppy Shadow

Third Prize Ethan Heffernan (6) who named our puppy Lucky
