The folks in Flanders, however, have taken another tack to try and stop a local “Sevs” from opening.

David and Elissa Miles of Greenport have a real love for dogs. Through that love, they’ve come to embrace holistic approaches to canine health, including raw food and what’s known as low-stress grooming.

So it seems appropriate they’re operating their own pet supply business on Mattituck’s Love Lane.  (more…)
