To the right of Propellers of the City is a temporary addition to the public art, one of the Great North Snowdogs.
Great North Snowdogs

The Great North Snowdogs were a temporary public art trail in North East England during autumn 2016. 61 snowdog sculptures, each painted individually and sponsored by local businesses, were on public display, mostly within Tyne & Wear. After the end of the exhibition, the sculptures were auctioned with the proceeds going to St. Oswald's Hospice, a charity providing care and support to people with serious or terminal illness.

A snowdog trail was displayed in Brighton and Hove at around the same time: Link
