The Dog Chapel introduced readers to Stephen Huneck's very special retreat for dogs and their owners, and Huneck's dog-centric philosophy 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. Â Pet owners come to the Dog Chapel in Vermont 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. This book celebrates this affection and reflects on the life cycle of beloved dogs. It is the perfect gift for a bereaved pet owner, or anyone who believes that dogs have a special place in human life.

"After recovering from a near-fatal illness, Huneck established a chapel dedicated to the relationship between dogs and their owners on his property in Vermont." Library School Journal
