There are many species of mammals in the Pacific Northwest, and by this description, you’re looking for a rodent. It could have been a vole, which has a seemingly hairless short tail, a blunt snout and is smaller than a rat. You can look at pictures of some Pacific Northwest Rodents at this website, under the mice section: http://share3.esd105.wednet.edu/rsandelin/fieldguide/Animalpages/Mammals/Land%20mammals.htm
Thank you. From the link you gave I’d say it’s a mountain beaver.
