Maybe your pooch is the perfect purse-size dog, the Bruiser Woods to Elle in Legally Blond. Pawhaps your best fren is more of a lovable, large Beethoven. Whether he’s portable or the size of a small pony, chances are you’d love to have him join you on a shopping spree. We sniffed out 6 dog-friendly Colorado malls for you and pup to shop ‘til you drop.
