"All Creeds. All Breeds. No Dogmas Allowed."
Whether you are a dog person or not, you have probably seen Stephen Huneck's woodcut illustrations
or children's books
. The man clearly likes his canines. About eight years ago, a wild idea
came to him shortly after he returned home with his wife and three dogs following a near-fatal illness that left him in a coma for two months. He was inspired to build a non-denominational chapel on his 400-acre mountain-top farm in St. Johnsbury (named "Dog Mountain," naturally), and to style it in the manner of a small village church built in Vermont around 1820. He then opened Dog Chapel
to the public. "I look at this chapel as the largest artwork of my life, and my most personal."
he says. It looks cool
