In The Dog Chapel, readers were introduced to Stephen Huneck's very special retreat for dogs and their owners, and Huneck's dog-centric philosophy first captured the public's attention. In this book, a follow-up to that perennial seller, readers will learn more about the special affection owners reserve for dogs that have passed on. At Stephen Huneck's Dog Chapel in Vermont, many pet owners come to remember and memorialize their beloved dogs. All along the walls and on every available surface, visitors leave pictures, letters, and testimonials about the dogs that have passed away. People who have just lost a pet find comfort in this outpouring of emotion, and use the walls to bid farewell to their canine friends. It is the perfect gift for a bereaved pet owner, or anyone who believes that dogs have a special place in human life.
