The Snowdogs and Snowpups have now been unleashed onto the streets of Ashford and now the final pair of pups are ready to join the pack of loveable Snowdogs and Snowpup sculptures across our Ashford centres.
The final designs have seen a partnership between two local services, Motorline Group and Ashford College, who are both sponsors of a giant Snowdog each, but the final pups for the 55 strong pack of dogs are Motorline Group’s very own smaller Snowpups.
Motorline Group held a creative competition for their customers to design a Snowpup and these designs have been translated onto the Snowpups by two students Kaya Cook and Robyn Bailey, year 2 students from Ashford College.
The Motorline design competition took the form of two categories, under 12’s and over 12’s. The two lucky winners were Katie, 8, who created, Spotty. Spotty is half Labrador and half Dalmatian, a vibrant yellow with blue spots all over, a red nose and he has very sensitive ears. The second winner was Jazmin, 15, who designed Snoop Doug, inspired by magical colours and galaxy themed. Snoop Doug is very fond of catching bubbles and of course, being stroked.
The young artists said “We are so excited to have been a part of the Snowdogs project! We really appreciate the opportunity to interpret and paint the pups that were designed by the staff at Motorline. Spotty is such a happy, bright pup and we love the galaxy concept behind Snoop Doug. We’ve really enjoyed being involved with the Snowdogs trail and we hope that everybody loves seeing these pups popping up at the Motorline dealerships!”
After their glamourous makeover, Spotty and Snoop Doug’s new kennel homes will be a part of the Motorline family, at our 6 Ashford based car dealerships.
You can catch these beautifully painted pups at Motorline Toyota, Nissan, Peugeot, Hyundai, Dacia and Renault for the duration of the Snowdogs trail until 18 November 2018.
Glen Obee, Chairman of Motorline said “We are thrilled to be involved in Ashford Snowdogs as the Farewell Weekend and Auction Partner, this project links all areas of our community and we wanted to ask young inspiring artists to translate our customers designs onto our little, not so little, Snowpups. We are incredibly grateful to Katie and Jazmin for their creative inspirations and to Robyn and Kaya for their amazing painting skills in translating these designs onto the Snowpup.”
Snowdogs Discover Ashford is a trail of Snowdog sculptures based on the story of The Snowman and The Snowdog. The trail will feature 35 Snowdogs designed by local artists and sponsored by local businesses, together with 19 Snowpups designed and decorated by 19 local schools, we also have a Snowdog on the trail named Doodle Dog. The sculptures will be dotted around the borough from 12th September for 10 weeks. At the end of the project, the large Snowdogs will be auctioned by local charity, Pilgrims Hospices, with the Snowpups being returned to the schools, as a treasured keepsake.
Motorline Group is the project’s Farewell Weekend and Auction Partner and we are proud to sponsor these two high profile events, which will raise funds and awareness of the work of Pilgrims Hospices.
