The iconic fountain at Adelaide city center’s Rundle Mall is a popular area for people to gather – and it’s a great spot to socialize your puppy, which is exactly what Neville Harris began doing with Sunshine, his Golden Retriever, eleven years ago. Since then Sunshine, accompanied by Harris, has come to her favorite visiting spot every week.
She has become an attraction in her own right with people coming to pet Sunshine and take photos with her as she poses with her paws on the fountain’s wall.
Harris explained that Sunshine’s presence at the fountain has been a great source of joy for children, people who love dogs and, most touchingly, those who have lost their own dogs and are comforted by being able to pet her.
As part of the mall’s 30 million dollar renovation the fountain was removed. The original plan did not include returning the fountain. The idea of which deeply saddened Harris, who with the support of the community, put together a 15 thousand signature petition to save the fountain. The city council granted the plan change, and the fountain will be refurbished.
Sunshine and her fans will have to find a new spot for visiting, but only for a while… the fountain will be returned to its original location later this year.
