Calm down, Saks Fifth Avenue—no one out there is confusing you with an online doggy treats business catering to pups with food sensitivities. Regardless, the department store sent a cease and desist letter to the New Jersey-based Snaks 5th Avenchew demanding a name change. "I knew that Saks was able to offer me the best of what I was looking for, and I wanted to do the same thing with pets," said owner Carrie Sarabella. "It was almost as if I was honoring and complimenting what they always gave to me, but unfortunately they don't feel the same way." [Reutuers]
