The Mother Matilda Beasley Park is located on East Broad Street in downtown Savannah. The dog park was created in Spring 2008 and is maintained by the Chatham County Commissioners.

This site is very unofficial and is for the benefit of dogs and dog owners who frequent the park or those that are interested in visiting. We have no authority over the park except for our mutual interest in keeping it a vital community space.

Dear Diary... It's me Lola 7-25-08

Dear Diary,

Today I went up to some human on the street who I didn’t know and sat down in front of him. I smiled and wagged my tail to let him know that I thought he was nice and I gave him permission to love on me. Guess what happened… NOTHING happened! He just stared. Then made a weird face. I actually think he didn’t like me being there. So I stood up and shook my butt a little more and smiled even bigger. Still nothing. My human called to me and tugged me away from him.

It’s not like I thrust my nose in his crotch or anything. I’m not shy but I’m not that pushy either! Later my human petted me said that some people just don’t like dogs. I was like, what hell is a “dog” and what does that have to do with me, lady?

Whatever.

Later, I peed on a tree. That lifted my spirits a bit. Then in the car on the way home, my human cranked up the noises she plays from what she calls "the radio". She made noises too except they didn’t quite match the noises from radio. She calls this "singing". But she was trying so hard, it made me smile. She just kept singing, “Hold me closer tiny dancer…” I smiled and wiggled my butt to show her I thought she was cute. Humans are funny.

Dear Lola,

There I was munching on grass outside the great open space that smells like other dogs. In the all the gibberish my human was emitting I heard "LOLA". And there, after nearly five moon rises, I finally see you again. But only to sniff your butt once, before my idiot human pulled on my restraining device. Damn that thing!

Hopefully after yet another moonrise, my human will yield to my deceptive pleas and bring me back to the great open space that smells like other dogs so we can play. He is so gullible.

Oh, since you have been gone, Adley has learned a new trick. Something that totally angers his human. I think he is learning the mythical Mating Ritual and practices on Luna quite often. I think the humans call it "Stop Humping"!

All Adley's human says is, "Blah blah Adley, stop humping blah blah blah, squeal". Apparently the other humans like it, because they pant and show their teeth at one another.

They are strange. I wish we had opposable thumbs.

Lola, you're so wonderfully unconditionally loyal and loving, but you needn't cover-up your human's true actions. We all know you thought she was so cute because she was singing "hold me closer, Tony Danza."
