We are Stephenson Memorial Primary School art club and have named our puppy George after ‘The father of the railways’ George Stephenson. He was the inventor of ‘The Rocket’ which appears on our school logo.

Our puppy design has been heavily influenced by his work so we have decided to cover him in train tracks to represent the importance of his invention which is now universally used world wide. George was kindly gifted to us by sponsor Nexus which is another link to the railway design.

Nexus have sponsored this Snowdog.
