We had the pleasure of meeting author Val Mallinson when she came into our shop looking for a new pair of glasses. Val is the author of The Dog Lover’s Companion to the Pacific Northwest & The Dog Lover’s Companion to Seattle, both are indispensable guides to all of the off-leash areas, parks, trails, campgrounds and beaches in the northwest. She also has a great blog which is a fantastic resource for Seattle area dog lovers.
