Two Paws Up Closes

Sad news:

A colorful landmark in downtown Frederick has closed its doors.

Two Paws Up, a pet store known for its bright frontage and doghouse on the street, is closed.

Opened in 2004 by Allison Levitt, the shop had become a popular place for pet owners. It offered food, treats and pet spa services.

The shop was closed Thursday, and there was no note on the door.
