This is a wonderful memorial to a celebrity of the town. Yes, I do believe all of the stories of Jim. I took my cocker to this site/dog park and enjoyed taking pictures of my dog with the statue. I miss my dog now that he is gone but recommend this memorial to all.

This park just off the town square memorializes a dog who had legendary talents. Doesn't take long to view but nice for a15 minute stop,nothing else like it around.

Garden is so relaxing and gorgeous. Staff in welcome center are very nice and welcoming. Love the beautiful garden and how serene it is. Love the story of Jim the Wonder Dog. Love the new mural being painted on the side of the building.

I was thrilled to see this memorial and read about Jim. It brought back so many memories of my Daddy telling me about Jim at my Grandma's house in Charleston. I believe. Go there.
