Indoor pet relief area at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport: The saga continues

Seattle’s airport is one of a handful of U.S. airports that offers travelers with dogs a pet relief area on the air side of security, meaning that you don’t have to exit the airport and return through security to give your dog a bathroom break. It has changed appearance over the past couple of years, and for a few months shifted locations, and my post about it became increasingly baroque with cross-outs and amendments. Now it’s back in its original location,  … Read more

Seattle airport’s new outdoor pet relief area (South end of baggage claim)

It is always a pleasure to be contacted by airport reps and told about new pet relief areas. My post yesterday about the new location of Seattle’s indoor pet relief area must have caught someone’s eye at SEA, because I received a message from Perry Cooper, Sea-Tac’s Media and Public Affairs Manager, urging me to update my grumpy 2009 post about the airport’s only (at that time) outdoor pet relief area, a particularly nasty object at the north end of  … Read more

Air-side pet relief area at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)

This post replaces a much-edited earlier post about the indoor pet relief area at Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport. Quick recap: Sea-Tac, or SEA, has three pet relief areas, two outside baggage claim (including one I just learned about today) and another inside the terminal — the two I’ve seen are mediocre (indeed, the outdoor pet relief area at the north end of baggage claim is one of the worst I’ve ever seen), but it’s so rare to find a pet relief  … Read more

Seattle Airport’s indoor pet relief area

Remember that reader Julia reported that the original airside pet relief area at SEA had closed, and there was a new one in the C gates area? Today’s update is brought to you by reader Ashlee, who just visited the new location and told me that “the dog relief area is directly across from gate C2. This is right at the beginning of the C gates (not far from the Life is Good store) so it’s still in (or very  … Read more

Photo Friday: Seattle Light Rail

The extension of Seattle’s light rail line to the airport has been open since mid-December 2009, but we took our first trip on it this past weekend. Chloe and I left the car in downtown Seattle and rode to the airport to meet my husband, who was returning from a few days in the Bay Area. As you can see, Chloe traveled in her Creature Leisure Carry Den XT (the backpack was a good choice, since there’s a bit of  … Read more

Taking the Dungeness Line to the Olympic Peninsula with a small dog

I saw a “Dungeness Line” bus in downtown Seattle for the first time yesterday, and I hurried to Google to find out more about it. It turns out to be an Olympic Bus Lines route providing two trips daily between Port Angeles, Sequim, Discovery Bay, Port Townsend and Kingston and several destinations in Edmonds and Seattle (the Edmonds Amtrak station, the Seattle Greyhound station, the Seattle hospitals, the Seattle Amtrak station and Seatac Airport).

Olympic is an independent agent of Greyhound,  … Read more

Seattle airport outdoor pet relief area (North end of baggage claim)

I thought it wasn’t possible for an airport pet relief area to be any nastier than Denver’s, but I was wrong. I learned last night that here in my own city, the airport pet relief area is seriously grim. There’s only one outdoor pet relief area, and it’s located at the far northern end of the arrivals level. [7/13/13 Sea-Tac has created a second outdoor pet relief area since this post was written, located at the opposite, southern end of  … Read more
