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.
