While many people know Sephen Huneck for his dog-themed paintings, woodcuts, furniture, and children’s books, perhaps the dog chapel built on his 175-acre farm in St. Johnsbury, is not as well known. The sign outside the chapel says it all: Welcome all creeds, all breeds. No dogmas allowed. The chapel’s main 30- x 22-foot main room has pew-style benches with dog likenesses at either end, says The Rutland Herald. There are stained glass windows with dog images. Owners leave messages and photographs saluting their current and remembering their past dogs. Humans have held their own life affirming wedding ceremonies there too. The chapel is open all year round for humans and dogs. "When dogs pull up in here…it’s like they saw the ‘Disneyland’ sign. They just get so excited, so happy," Huneck said. A salute to man’s best friend.
