If you're a dog lover, do not miss this. But expect to be overcomeiwth emotion. If you've recently lost a beloved dog, you can leave a message, photo, collar, box of ashes, etc. in the chapel.

What an inspirational spot to remember our dogs that are no longer here with us and have crossed over the rainbow bridge. They bring us such joy and unconditional love, it is nice to know we have a special place to honor them.

Well decorated in dog furniture. Thousands of notes remembering dear departed four legged friends. It is a bit sad to read all of them but go there and bring your dog. No leashes required and there is a pond right next to it..

No dogma allowed at Dog Mountain. It's a little slice of heaven on earth where dogs run off leash and are free to enter the chapel when ever they want. The chapel was so sweet. I was emotional as I looked at all the handwritten...More
