Shopping Date at Nordstrom!

I love to shop! And what's better than being able to take your dog with you on any given shopping date? I can't think of too many things. Being able to combine two things you love, that's my definition of a perfect time. That's just what Kobe and I did over the weekend!

All along Michigan Avenue, also referred to as the Magnificent Mile, are many dog-friendly shops and restaurants. Nordstrom just happens to allow dogs of any size into their store, so we stopped by for the afternoon with Kobe for his first shopping date. We didn't stay for long, and definitely plan to come back.

Nordstrom is actually located in a mall called the Shops at North Bridge. We walked through the mall, since it's also dog-friendly, and they have restaurants, and other brand name shops as well. A shopping must if visiting Chicago :)

Nordstrom, here we come!

Riding up the elevator to the stores!

Trying to give dad some fashion tips!

...And still checking myself out in the mirror!

Perusing through the racks to see what would best flatter my figure! ;)

Walking through the mall while everyone points and asks if they can say hi!

What a fun shopping date!


  1. I had no idea!!!! Downtown Chicago is one of our FAVORITE destinations! We've never taken Bosley with us because we really didn't know how dog friendly it was and we would hate to leave him in the hotel. Yay Nordstroms! Do you know of a good site that has a guide to dog friendly places in Chicago?

    1. It's SOOOO dog friendly, you wouldn't believe it!

      www.bringfido.com is a great site, you can see all the different dog friendly restaurants, shops, and attractions.

      Navy Pier (SeaDog boat tours will allow you to bring Bosley on the boat with you!!), Bloomingdales, and many restaurants with outdoor patios allow dogs!

  2. Wow! We don't have any dog friendly places here I don't think. Yogi would be appalled if we did and we weren't taking him there. It's his mission in life to greet every human in Australia with love in person.

    1. Try this website: www.bringfido.com and plug in your city, it may be more dog friendly than you know! :)

  3. We don't have any dog friendly stores (besides Pet Smart & Petco). Lucky Kobe!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley
