Enjoy the dog days of Summer...with your dog.

Custom Dog or Animal Art Salish Lodge - Sited atop Snoqualmie Falls, one of the Northwest's most beautiful natural monuments, Salish Lodge is much more than a fantastic view.  Renowned for their award-winning spa, this property delivers a quintessentially Northwest vibe.

Salish is truly a destination in and of itself - when not in the spa, the property boasts world-class dining, retail therapy in their fabulous boutique, outdoor excursions for the curious, and of course luxurious accommodations for both humans and canines alike. The lodge accepts four legged friends of all sizes (which as you may know can be a chore with a 65+ lb companion). They are so pet-friendly, in fact, that they have not only created luxe accommodations for Fido, such as bottled water filled bowls in-room, but also a world-class menu featuring cuisine to suit even the most discerning puppy palates.  I pulled the menu directly from their site, which is posted below.  For easier viewing, click to enlarge. You don't want to miss "The Bird Dog."

Get your pub on!

To the unaware, the name of this local "dive" may bring to mind a portly TV barfly from the iconic sitcom Cheers, but this Fremont hot-spot is named after a dog. Obvious upon entry, Norm and his canine companions occupy much of the wall space. Featuring daily food specials aptly named "Doggie Bowls," the theme may be too much for some, particularly cat people.
In this space, comfort is king.  Featuring a large wooden bar, couches for lounging, and booths for dining, there is rarely a bad seat in the house.  Attracting people (and paws) from all walks, the draw to this Fremont favorite is its purposefully low-key atmosphere (something that sets it in stark contrast to its younger, hippity-hop neighbors, the Ballroom and the Red Door). The beer selection is large for the bar's smaller size, and heavy-handed bartenders pour cocktails stiff enough to grab your attention. Although the food stands-up as pub fare (the hummus plate is actually quite good), the attraction is the staff, the atmosphere, and of course, the dogs.
*Seattle is not surprisingly a fairly pet-friendly place, and a number of local hotels and establishments welcome four- legged friends. One of my fav's for a night downtown with the pooch are any of the Seattle Kimpton Hotels which offer a wide variety of pet pamper-ings.*
