Stephen Huneck

We are deeply saddened to learn that artist Stephen Huneck has passed away.
A customer introduced us to his books and artwork many years ago, since we both have lovable black labs named Sally.

Since then, we've enjoyed offering his 'Sally' books here @ the shop, as well as his rugs - the most memorable being the 'Greetings' Rug!

I enjoyed a visit to his Dog Chapel in Vermont a few summers ago with my chocolate lab, Tarka. It's a beautiful spot which I hope remains in his honor. His family and friends are in our thoughts.
