Hey, fans of Dog Mountain, Stephen Huneck's artwork and/or dogs: National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered" will feature "Dog Mountain: A Love Story" on Sunday, May 31. That program airs 5-6 p.m. on Vermont Public Radio.

The audio documentary was produced by Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister, a married couple who, like thousands of people before them, were enchanted with the late Huneck's Dog Chapel during a visit several years ago. The unique shrine-to-doggies-past has been the subject of many an article, including in Seven Days, as well as TV and radio programs. Through their nonprofit media company Long Haul Productions, Collison and Meister also created a website that "continues the story online."

The story is about Stephen and Gwen Huneck, who tragically died in separate suicides; as well as about the love that dog owners have for their furry friends. Woof.
