“The Dog Lover’s Companion to the Pacific Northwest” ($21.95) and “The Dog Lover’s Companion to Seattle” ($17.95) are the go-to guides for people who want to take their best friends not just to parks — though there are many listed in the books — but also to shopping, lunch, pet-friendly hotels and wine tastings.
New editions of both books are out now by Seattle-based dachshund lover Val Mallinson, who mentions a slew of dog-friendly haunts throughout Snohomish County in both books. The books are brought to you by Avalon Travel, the folks behind the excellent Moon Travel Guides.
