Like many shoppers, every single time we walked into Paper Doll in Wicker Park we were greeted by Maude, snuggling up against her squishy face she'd say hello before we shopped. This past Sunday, Maude passed. A somber post on Paper Doll's Facebook wall says
"Some of you may know that she has been very sick the past few months, but her little body just couldn't take it anymore. She had the best eleven years a pup could have. We just want to thank you all for being such wonderful friends to our little lady."
