Stephen Huneck taught himself to carve wood and started carving images of his favorite thing: dogs.
He dreamed of one day building a chapel for dogs in St. Johnsbury.
His dream came true when the Hunecks built their chapel on 150 acres and they hoped it would become a place where dog owners could come to spend time with their pets.
They also hoped that it would be a place where people could mourn for the dogs in their lives that had died and find comfort by leaving notes and remembrances.
The Dog Chapel has become a haven for dog lovers and filled with thousands of notes that people left to pay tribute to their pets.
