1 All Dogs Go to Heaven

>> Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Remember a couple of months ago when we brought you the out-of-this-world dog houses? Well, artist Stephen Huneck had an even larger vision for his canine pals.

Featured in
Architectural Digest magazine, Huneck designed and built a dog chapel on his northern Vermont farm to pay tribute to our beloved companions.

Huneck knew exactly what he wanted the building to look like—an early-19th-century white-clapboard-clad Vermont village church, so he drew up the plans and got busy. Funded by the sale of his artwork, Huneck was only able to work on his divine doggy chapel between commissions. His hard work was put to good use in 2000 when the chapel opened its dog doors and have not closed since.

Keeping in step with 19th-century church tradition, Huneck included two doors, one for women and one for men, but took it one step further by adding an additional dog door for ultimate canine convenience...

Inside the chapel, photographs and written tributes cover the walls and ceiling...

What a thoughtful way to honor our furry friends.
