Guide dog puppy Iggy celebrates first birthday on Blue PeterGuide dog puppy Iggy celebrates first birthday on Blue Peter

Last week Blue Peter put on a fabulous birthday party for Iggy, the guide dog puppy in training whose progress they've been following closely since the day she was born.

To celebrate her first birthday, Iggy was reunited with her brothers and sisters and had her paw marks created in cement in the Blue Peter garden.

A spokesperson from Guide Dogs said: "It is a true honour to be working side by side with Blue Peter again, 50 years after we first worked together. Guide dogs change the lives of more than 4,700 people across the UK on a daily basis and we are delighted to have the opportunity to show Blue Peter viewers how we make this happen."
