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!

July 17, 2008

Dear Diary,

Well Diary, it’s me again… Lola. Today my human took me to the park in the morning-as usual. And as usual, I tried my best to destroy the unholy creatures that live deep within the flowers and grass but no luck. My human calls them “toads.” Whatever. I know the devil when I see it and I’ll keep trying to destroy them each day. Once again, my human kept making that awful sound, “NO!” and yanking me back on the path. And then she got that pissed off look on her face, like I was doing something wrong. Geez!

When we got to the arena of humans and others like me, I promptly proceeded to smell the asses of the others. Everything seemed kosher so I stood in the middle of the arena and stared for a while. I felt like I had forgotten something but couldn’t put my paw on it. Then it started. My human kept trying to get me to chase after the orbs. Sometimes she looks so pathetic and desperate, I indulge her and go after them once or twice but today, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Of course, then Luna had to do one of her fancy jump up and catch the orb and return it to her human maneuvers. Fortunately, Basil was there and we quickly distracted the humans by running after each other, fake growling and stuff. We can’t have them thinking we will always play those dumb games with them. And how will they ever learn if we don’t train them?

Later my best girl-friend Phoebe came with her human. And Sophie and Hazel with their human. And although I enjoy all of the gals, where were the boys?! I mean really? Ok, Diary… I have a confession. I have a crush on Mingus. He is so dreamy. I can’t wait to see him tomorrow. My human better make this happen. I’ll even try to give her extra room on the bed tonight so she’ll be in a good mood for tomorrow.

Ok, Diary, my human is making some sort of edible concoction that I just have to try! I’ll use my best, “I’m-so-sweet-don’t-you-love-me-face?” to get some from her. Heh heh heh…. it works every time.

Glad we agree. Toads=Devil. BTW... you are totally awesome with the ball catching thing. You are my hero... but my mommy is way better at "Balls In" than your daddy. He might be lucky, but she's all heart! She's also training Jack's mom to be a ringer too. Look out.

Yes, I heard my pet (they call him Michael) and others say that Jack's mom is the new "Queen of Balls." They all cackled after that. Humans are wierd.
