Even Bad Dogs Go to Heaven

With Stephen Huneck sadly passing this past January, fans will especially cherish his latest and last book, Even Bad Dogs Go To Heaven: More from the Dog Chapel. This final offering, like the actual Dog Chapel Huneck built, lightens the heart. A bit of back-story: after overcoming a serious illness, Huneck was inspired to build Dog Chapel, an 1820s-style Vermont church on Dog Mountain, a hill on Huneck’s mountain-top farm. During his convalescence, Huneck reflected on life and death and rituals performed to lessen the pain and achieve closure. This reflection resulted in his creation of Dog Chapel and the two Dog Chapel-inspired books, Dog Chapel and Even Bad Dogs Go To Heaven, intended to help people find closure after losing a beloved dog. Huneck’s dog-centric philosophy comes alive in his last colourful and poignant book celebrating and reflecting on the special love we hold for our dogs, ultimately reinforcing Huneck’s belief that “dogs bring us closer to nature, help us live in the moment, and make us feel unconditionally loved.” A perfect gift for a bereaved pet parent or, for that matter, anyone who loves their dog.
