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.

Don't forget Mrs. Claus....

Alli keeps telling us her New Year's resolution is to not miss a day at the dog park ( I guess that would be the human equivalent of gym).

christmas day at the dog park!

i admit i am a little chicken today. there was a new person at the dog park, letting and encouraging his 2 doxin dogs to dig in the pre existing holes. then one of them peed in the water bowl! i didnt say anything and just left because this person made me very uncomfortable. i hope others are more vocal than me. and i apologize for not defending the park we all love!!! ALSO. a GIANT GINORMOUS THANK YOU to BOONS owner for coming in with his shovel and filling in the major holes along the fence and water area. it made a huge difference and next time some one allows their dog to dig, i will try and muster up the courage to say, hey dont let them do that!! (the person actually was saying GET IT like there was something at the bottom of the hole for their dog to get!!!)

so if you were a squirrel..............this is what baker would look like to you!!!

Ahab playing at the park

Ahab's new dog park habit because we all know that he can't play.


well, i was just trying to get your attention with that heading! if you are reading this it worked. i just wanted to share with people a concern i have........and a solution as well :) so about 3 weeks ago, during the was not crowded at the park at all. i was there with baker throwing the ball. precious sasha was there and about five other dogs. a woman was standing not exactly in the middle of the dog park, im not sure her name but she owns Moakely- a jack russel mix>? any way............she was knocked clear on her butt/back! it was a little scary. she was indeed fine. but can you imagine if she landed the wrong way, could have been hurt! luckily it wasnt baker that knocked her down. but thats just it, it happened so fast, no one really knew which dog it was.
WHATS MY POINT? lately ive been seeing people come in in with babies and it makes me very uncomfortable. its not safe no matter where you stand. the dogs are fast and get up under the tables, on the tables. and they are dogs, it is their park. i did notice a new couple at the park and they had a great game plan for them, their english bull puppy Cash, and their baby. the mom stayed outside the gate with the baby and the dad stayed inside to monitor the pup, pick up poop and what not. they switched later and the mom came inside.
it also reminds me of late summer when the adults came into the park in the late morning with a dog and a young child that just learned to walk im guessing? he was walking around unattended and one of the dogs almost bit him. some people might even be weirded out i go to the park being pregnant, but one thing is for sure. babies can cause dogs to be curious and jump- they might think it a toy. i just wanted to share about the couple the Cash, it truely was a great idea. and when Liam(my hubby) and i saw how they were able to dfo the dog park thing, we thought!-PERFECT solution, because just because a baby comes baker will not be dethroned from the life he knows. oh yeah, just a fact to share with yall- pitbulls used to be called NANNY DOGS because they are so tolerant of children. has anyone ever pulled on bakers ears or bit his face?hehehehe, well lots of dogs do that to him at the park and he takes it like a gentleman!!well there is my rambling........blablablalblabla

Feel free to just show up and share a drink.

Savannah's Finest

Jealous Dogs Don't Play Ball

Did we need a scientist to tell us that dogs don't like being treated unfairly? I can tell by the fact that whenever I pet other dogs at the dog park, Ahab immediately comes to my side to remind me that he's number one. Maybe that's why he doesn't like to play fetch with me?

A Dog in Need of a Home

A 13-month old boxer mix needs a home. He was left at the Barkie Bow Wow Pet Salon on Montgomery Crossroads three months ago and he's still living there. His previous owner moved overseas and couldn't take him. He looks like he weighs about 50 lbs. He's a very sweet dog who needs a home with a yard. He's housebroken and knows basic commands. Call (912) 927-1422 to inquire.

Dear Diary... It's me, Lola! 12:2:08

What the what?!
So Thanksgiving rocked! I ate turkey and all kinds of yummy stuff that the humans concocted- and when I thought no one was looking, I put my snout into Kate's luscious apple pie. (And that's not a euphemism.) On the balcony, during girl talk, I licked Alice's face and tried to sit in her lap. I know I am slightly bigger than Jack , but I think she kind of liked it anyway. Later, Ahab and I made a Ron sandwich on the couch. He let us love all up on him and it was great. Then Dan petted me under the chin, which according to him, is the best spot. I'd have to agree. I love all the humans who came over. My human and I slept soundly all night. Ahhhh... Thanksgiving.
