The Olde Savannah Inn Blog


kathleen Dupuis - Friday, May 17, 2013

For many years, guests of The Olde Savannah Inn were greeted with the wagging tail of Dakotah, part Labrador part concierge.  When Dakotah passed away, the  bed and breakfast mourned the loss, but pressed on.  Recently, Kathleen heard about a sweet beagle that needed her help.  Cooper had been abandoned on the side of the road.  He was found and placed in a shelter, but Cooper's time was rapidly running out.  He had to be adopted or would be put to sleep.  A plea went out to save Cooper's life and people began spreading the word.  Kathleen learned of Cooper's situation through her daughter and decided to spring into action.  She began corresponding with the people in North Carolina where Cooper was being held.  Incidentally, one of the women had stayed at the inn and remembered her.  Working quickly, paperwork and other obstacles were overcome and Cooper had a new lease on life.  Upon entering the inn for the first time, he strode in eager to explore his new home.  Cooper has now taken up where Dakotah left off; welcoming guests and helping them feel like they too are at home.
