Vicki,



The deer you saw is almost certainly a Columbian black-tailed deer. They
are by far the most common deer on the west side of the Cascades. The tail
is smaller than that of a white-tailed deer, but similarly white on the
underside, and typically raised to display the white "flag" when the deer is
running.



The WDFW website has a good overview of Washington deer species
