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.

Hunting Island is SSSOOO Much Fun!

I took a field trip today to a place so wonderful. The beach! And one where they let me play and run and chase my tennis ball and play in the water a little bit. It's so beautiful. I want to go back every day. But now I'm so tired I can only sleep. I'm so happy.

Love Mela x

Wag-O-Ween ~ it's Halloween for dogs!


Accompany your costumed dog on a trick or treat walk around historic

It all begins at Canine Palace, 618 Abercorn Street
on Saturday, October 25 from 2 - 5 p.m.

Tickets are $5 per person; no charge for children under 18 yrs.
Ticket purchase gives you a map of the treat sites.

Dear Diary... It's me Lola! 9-1-08

Dear Diary,

I am so sad. My human put me in the vat of water thing today. She calls it a “bath”. I call it torture. I just stood there frozen and nearly cried. I mean, what does she think she’s doing to me anyway? What did I ever do to her? Except for vomit on the kitchen floor a few times, eat the trash and generally spaz out with joy whenever she comes home from the mysterious places she goes to each day.

Ok, I’m over it. She gave me yummy treats after, held me like a baby and said what sounded like nice things to me. I love her. She’s the best human! Or is the best human the one at the bank drive thru who always gives me those awesome biscuit things every time we go there? Hmmm...

Later, the two small furry things my human calls “cats” surround me and stiffed me. When I tried to get closer to them one hissed and ran away. The other punched me in the eye. When my human leaves, I will try to eat them.


P.S. I miss Phoebe.
