Three Extraordinary Gifts for Seattle Dog Moms

Seattle Dog Moms, you don’t mess around when it comes to providing the best for your dogs. You give them your love, and you spare no expense to make them happy. They get the best of everything because they are your everything. You work hard to give them all that they deserve, and it’s worth it just to see their sweet faces looking up at you every day. Seattle Dog Moms, you are amazing. It’s time to celebrate you with the same dedication you give to the dogs you love.   Seattle Dog Moms Treat Themselves. You’re a strong, brilliant woman, and can treat yourself to the things that are important to you. You don’t need to wait for someone to buy you something you want. One of the most empowering things I’ve done in my life is to decide to go after the things I truly want. Sure, I’ll make a plan and save for the big things, but I don’t need anyone’s permission to spend my money on the things that I value.  Your dogs are a huge piece of who you are, and the things you value honor that. I’ve put together three gift ideas that will not only help you celebrate how incredible you are, but will leave you feeling deeply connected to the dog you love. Here are three extraordinary ways you can celebrate how dang awesome you are.   1. A custom 3D-printed & hand-painted statue of your dog. We’re starting out with something amazing for dog moms who prefer art pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind. These statues from Rapid 3D Concepts are custom-designed, 3D-printed and hand-painted with love. They are as unique as the dogs they’re modeled after. Each custom piece is created from photos of your dog. You can choose the pose and even include your dog’s favorite toy to accompany them.  Here’s why I think you need one. These statues are the perfect blend of tech, art and dogs. I don’t know what could be more ‘Seattle Dog Mom’ than that. Okay, maybe it ties with a lot of things because Seattle dog moms are multidimensional beings, and I love us. But for those of you who like to have a thing that screams tech, art and dogs, this custom 3D-printed & hand-painted statue of your dog is a must-have gift you can treat yourself to.  The 5-inch custom-designed statue is priced at $1000. A lot goes into the creation of these art pieces, and you can see some timelapse video of the one they made of my dog, Kerouac, and her hedgie. The owners of Rapid 3D Concepts are animal-loving folks, and I had a great time interviewing them recently during my Dirtie Dog of the Year contest. I can tell you that they definitely put a lot of love into the work they do for their customers, and you will be really happy with the results.   2. A weekend getaway to the coast with your dog. I need a vacation. After the year we’ve all had, I’m gonna go ahead and guess that you probably need one too. Not just any vacation though. One that lets you spend time with your furry best friend, and doesn’t require you to jump on a plane. Yeah, I’m gonna avoid being trapped in a flying tin can with a bunch of people for a bit longer if I can help it. Give me my car, some great snacks, the best tunes and my hairball mess of a dog and I’m happy. My husband can come too because he’s a really good driver (and we love him).  My absolute favorite place on the coast of Washington is Kalaloch Lodge, specifically the bluff cabins. I went here for the first time for my 25th birthday with my mom, siblings and our blue heeler, Rocket. We lucked out with the weather that January. The sunsets were incredible and the night skies were lit up with stars. It was magic, and I have been in love with that place ever since. I haven’t been out there as much as I would like, but that’s something I’m planning to change. It’s just too damn amazing to not make it a yearly trip.  Here’s what’s so great about this weekend getaway for Seattle Dog Moms.  The cabins at Kalaloch are dog-friendly, and the ones situated on the bluff have the most amazing view. The beach below is perfect for adventuring and it’s not far to drive to trails and other beaches. The sunsets will make you forget any stresses back home. You’ll feel a deeper connection to your dog for having witnessed their joy while running through the waves in the ocean. If you need a little magic in your life, book this trip out to the coast for you and your dog. Grab a special rate for staying with your dog! Through The Kalaloch Lodge’s official website, you can grab their Pet Friendly Accommodations special to book a three-night stay in a bluff cabin with your dog. Depending on the size of the cabin, you’re looking at spending at least $1100 for lodging. You’ll also want to budget for food, gas, and entry to Olympic National Park if you plan to go on an adventure other than the beach at Kalaloch. Overall, plan to spend between $1500-$2000 for your entire 3-night getaway. You’ll also want to start planning any future trips sooner than later. These magical places tend to book up fast in the warmer months, but they’re also beautiful in the Winter.   3. A photo session and book to stay connected to your dog’s story. Our dogs are our greatest gifts, and even though they don’t get to stay with us as long as we would hope, their stories don’t have to end. They can live on through us.  My favorite gift for Seattle Dog Moms celebrates the dog you love in photos. A story session with Dirtie Dog Photography helps you to
