Grinning and Golden

Amongst all the Punt Road funnies and frustrations we've received, there have been some deeply moving tales that have made us gasp or shed a tear.

Christie shared one about a grinning golden dog – 'a streak of pure joy' – who escaped its owner and veered onto the busy road. Cars screeched to a halt as it zoomed unknowingly through the traffic, ears flapping, tongue flailing. But one car didn't stop. One car hit the dog, flung it up into the air, and drove on.

Christie leapt out of her van and ran to the dog's side. She crouched beside it and stroked its head as the milk crept into the black of its eyes. The traffic didn't move. Everyone sat and waited and watched. Everything was silent.
