Harry Potter leaves stressed MPs spellbound

Solihull Editorial 28th May, 2019   0

BORIS Johnson was hoping a dog called Harry Potter could magic him the Conservative leadership.

The four-year old Chihuahua therapy dog took time off from his day job visiting patients on the children’s wards of Warwick and Solihull hospitals to head to London.

The dog and his owner Jane Neary, from Hatton, visited parliament as part of their volunteer work with charity Therapy Dogs in a bid to de-stress MPs.

Among those to receive some pet therapy were Tory leadership contenders Boris and Matt Hancock, and also Warwick and Leamington MP Matt Western.

Tiny Harry was among 13 dogs to be invited to visit parliament.

And now Harry is back home in Hatton he will be returning to work – supporting hospital patients and also visiting nearby care homes, schools, hospices and prisons.

Jane told the Observer: “We had a great day in London and both loved it.

“Therapy dogs are all doing the same job of being non judgemental and giving unconditional love to those who need it.

“Harry is so amazing, people love seeing him and he has the perfect temperament.”
