Hello! My Name is Deidra. I currently reside in Washington D.C with my spouse who is in the Marines. At this time, I am a part-time online college student at Southern New Hampshire University, pursuing my BA in Computer Engineering. I have a passion not only for software development but Physical Fitness and of course furry friends. I grew up walking dogs around my neighborhood in grade school and have done so for the past 2 years as a volunteer for elderly friends in Potomac, Maryland. I have a Great Dane named Pluto he is 1 years old and weighs approximately 109lbs (I know he's a big guy!). My big guy Pluto loves long walks and can play fetch for hours at a time, we both enjoy a long walk and sightseeing around the city. I have experience with dogs of all breeds, personalities, and medical conditions. I strongly believe in treating our Furry friends with the same love and respect as if they were my own pet. I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends!

Dog Walking in Thunderbolt

The town of Thunderbolt, Georgia is located about five miles southeast of Savannah. Although Thunderbolt is small, it has a mighty reputation amongst seafood fans; the town is known for having plenty of mouthwatering seafood restaurants. While there’s plenty to do in Thunderbolt, a lot of the local recreation is based by the Wilmington River. Residents love spending a lazy Saturday out on the dock, waiting to feel that familiar tug on their fishing rods.

Fido might get a bit bored waiting for the fish to bite, but that’s no problem! Thunderbolt is home to two dog-friendly eateries, Tortuga’s Island Grill and Tubby’s Tank House. Your dog is welcome to dine outside with you. Although the town doesn’t have a dog park, with Savannah just up the road, fun with Fido is just a short drive away from Thunderbolt. Unfortunately, the town doesn’t have a veterinarian clinic, so if you need care for a sick or injured pet, you’ll want to take him to Savannah or the nearby town of Talahi Island.

Thunderbolt is a beautiful town with some gorgeous views of the Wilmington River, and if you don’t mind making a quick trip up the road, the town is also perfect for your four-legged family members.

There’s also a historic house and an archeological exhibit on the premises, so the two of you can make a day of it. Savannah Botanical Gardens welcomes all leashed dogs, and all they ask in return is that you clean up any messes your pooch makes.

What would a visit to Savannah be if you didn’t take a ghost tour? Historic District North has plenty of options, including Blue Orb Ghost Tours and Savannah Terrors. If you’re not into ghost stories, consider taking a tour with Architectural Tours of Savannah to admire and learn more about the city’s beautiful buildings. Each of these tours is a walking tour, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Fido can join you as long as he stays on his leash. You’ll also want to be sure to bring along waste disposal bags for easy clean-up.
