dog chapel.


The story is cheesy and sweet.  A man wanted to commemorate the things he valued most which were his family and his dog.  So, he created the Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury, Vermont - a place with pews shaped for dogs and a podium at a dog-appropriate height.  The walls are plastered with photos and testimonials for dogs living and past.  It's the sweetest.  Every month or so there are dog parties up there and I was lucky enough to go and see all the dogs running free on the many acres of land - swimming in the lake and group games of fetch.  It turns out if you take leashes off of dogs they all play really nicely together - so many dogs running around and no fights!  Plus, there were so many hiking trails on the land which meant walking around picking flowers and eating wild blackberries.  Nothing better.
