When Dr Harry met Bella

AUSTRALIA'S highest profile vet took a dip with a famous local yesterday.

Dr Harry, in town making housecalls and filming for his spot on television's Better Homes and Gardens, dropped in at the Pet Porpoise Pool to meet Bella.

“I've been close to a dolphin before but I have never been able to embrace one like that – it really was an honour and a privilege,” he said.

“Coffs Harbour is such a lovely place, I love it here – it's a lot warmer than down home in Tasmania I can tell you!”

While the locations of his housecalls were kept secret, Dr Harry did let on that he was looking to relocate his Tasmanian horse stud to the Mid North Coast.

“We're looking at a few properties on the way home, hopefully we find something we like,” he said.

The show featuring Coffs Coast will air on Prime, November 5.
