A woman whose guide dog made a cancer patient’s day in Kenilworth is appealing for her to get in touch if she ever wants to see the dog again for cuddles.

Carrie Terry, of Clarendon Place in Leamington, was in Kenilworth with her guide dog stud Bobby visiting friends on Thursday March 2.

Carrie, a part time lecturer at Warwickshire College and an ambassador for Guide Dogs, popped into Wilko’s in Station Road with Bobby to do some shopping.

Bobby was then spotted by a couple in the shop who were very taken with him, especially the woman, who asked Carrie about Bobby and his role as a breeding dog.

The couple briefly went away, then returned with a box of dog treats for Bobby. They asked Carrie if they could feed one to Bobby, which she accepted.

Carrie said: “She was clearly enjoying the experience and then explained that she’d just received a cancer diagnosis and that Bobby had ‘made her day’.

“I was just tremendously touched really. It was such an emotional moment that I wasn’t thinking lucidly - because I was so taken aback I didn’t get her number.

“It was preying on my mind afterwards.”

Carrie is now appealing for the woman to get in touch with her if she ever wants to see Bobby again to cheer her up.
