Ghost Dogs of Bonaventure Cemetery

     It's October...the perfect time for spooky stories! The Savannah area is no stranger to the spirit world...we are The Most Haunted City in America after all!
     Did you know legend has it that the Bonaventure Cemetery is prowled by a pack of ghostly K-9s? There have been reports of visitors to the cemetery feeling as if they are being followed! Though no one has ever seen the dogs, and there is no physical evidence of them, visitors still say growling, barking, and the frenzied sound of rushing paws can be heard.

     Now, locals know that lack of physical evidence doesn't mean it's just your imagination. Savannah is teeming with other worldly visitors, some more easily heard than seen. So, next time you're in the area, take time to explore and learn about our haunted history! Happy Haunting!

A Visit from Boomer!

I was so excited the other day when Boomer came to visit! He is 6 months old now, and just the best student he can be! He is going to make a wonderful guide dog for someone some day. Thanks for stopping by for a visit Boomer, it was great to see you!

Don't forget, you can help sponsor guide dogs too! Proceeds from our Beach Bum Biscuits support dogs like Boomer! They are available for your pets in every cottage to enjoy for your visits, and you can pick up a bag to take home at Seaside Sisters here on the island. Thanks for helping us support service and guide dogs!

Pirate Fest Pooches!

     We had a fabulous time here on Tybee this weekend! The 2010 Pirate Fest was in town and everyone was decked out in their very best garb for the party. Don't for one minute think that our four footed island friends missed out on the action, either! Oh no...they were having a swash buckling good time with the rest of us!

     So sad to see the pirates leave...but they will be back! It's never too early to start planning for the fun of next year!

Check out little Abby in St. Petersburg, Florida!  She just LOVES her bag of Beach Bum Biscuits (or she did!). This little girl was rescued in dire need of medical care and now she's healthy, happy and FULL of Beach Bum Biscuits! Come to Seaside Sisters and get yourselves a bag for the puppy in your pound! Healthy snacks for your furry kids AND they help sponsor a guide/service dog puppy. Now, for nap time... sweet dreams, Abby!

Can You Smell That?

     Ever wonder why your dog can magically tell when you enter the kitchen and get out the food? Well, according to, dogs can smell, oh, only about 1000 times better than us! They say that dogs have over 220 million smell-detecting cells in their noses while we humans have a mere 5 million.
     So, next time you think you're being slick by sneaking a snack...don't be surprised when your dog catches you!

The Blessing of the Pets on Tybee!

     The All Saints Episcopal Church here on Tybee is going to be hosting a wonderful event coming up in October! All pets are invited to attend the Blessing of the Pets..and of course, your humans are welcome too! There will be fun for all, a performance by the Savannah Children's Preparatory Choir, and even the local mounted patrol and K-9 unit will join the festivities! 
      October 4th is the Feast of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment. Saint Francis was born in Assisi in 1182. He lived a simply life of poverty, committed to God, and gained a reputation for being a friend to all animals. He established the rule of St. Francis, which today is known as the Order of Saint Francis, or the Franciscans. He died in 1266 at the age of 44. The Blessing of the Pets is done all over the world in remembrance of the love Saint Francis had for all creatures!

Learn more about the history of The Blessing of the Pets here!
     Make sure you save the date! The event begins at 4pm Sunday, October 3rd in the church yard at All Saints Episcopal Church. (Perfect timing after you attend the Book signing and coffee tasting fundraiser at Seaside Sisters!) 
     The church is on Jones Avenue here on Tybee Island. If you are headed in from Savannah, turn right onto Jone Avenue at the second light and go 8 blocks. The church will be on your left! And don't worry, if the weather doesn't cooperate, the festivities will move to the church hall. We can't wait to see everyone there and celebrate that special bond we share with our furry friends!
