THIS WEEK IN 1975: Reunited after 30 years – but only thanks to a kind stranger

Have your say

How many of you Chipsters had snow yesterday? Fun, wasn’t it?

I love snow because it means you can go sledging, have snowball fights and, best of all, you can build snowmen.

But don’t forget snowdogs. It’s important to give your snowman a friend.

And, when there’s not enough snow on the ground for a full-sized snowman, a snowdog can be the answer. It could be anything from a great Dane to a chihuahua.

I was pleased to see one of my favourite festive films, The Snowman, remade at Christmas, with the introduction of a furry friend.

Did you see The Snowman and The Snowdog? If not, you can still see it online on 4OD until the middle of next week.

In the first few minutes, it shows how you can make your own snowdog.

Also on 4OD, is a programme which shows you all about how they made the new animation.

You can still create a snowdog, from the warmth of your home, even if you didn’t get any snow. With the help of this programme, you can learn exactly how to draw one.

In the meantime, why not add a snowdog to this picture and send it to me? I’d love to see what you create.

That’s all for this week Chipsters. Chip chip for now.
