Wildebeest creates the perfect present for new dog parents.10
Janine is Editor-in-Chief and founding editor of Dogster and Catster Magazines. In previous career incarnations, she held web editor positions at Village Voice alternative newsweeklies (including SF Weekly and OC Weekly), the Los Angeles Times, and USC’s Online Journalism Review. She has several pompous-sounding awards from her journalism days in a box in her storage unit, but thinks it’s way more impressive that she has her dog tattooed on her skin in three different locations. Janine hates that she had braces on when the video below was shot but thinks you should see it anyway, vanity be damned.
Full Name (Including Embarrassing Second Names): Janine Marie Pueo Kahn
Age: 28 going on 40
Location: San Francisco, CA (but born and raised in Manila, Philippines)
Where You Can Stalk Me on the Internet: @janinekahn
What I Do for a Living: I run Dogster and Catster's editorial operations.
What I Do for Fun: I spend my evenings obsessing over tomorrow’s headlines, planning new tattoos, searching for Lulu Guinness dog-themed purses on eBay, and posting photos of my fur child on Facebook.
The Furry Members of My Household Are: Moxie (four-pawed) and Jeffrey (two-legged)
My Favorite Things to Write Are: Personal, bleeding-heart narratives; ridiculous listicles; general tomfoolery
My Pet Peeves Are: People who misappropriate apostrophes; bigots and homophobes; anyone who asks me if my Italian Greyhound is a Whippet
My Guilty Pleasures Are: Buying cute things I don’t need, buying my dog cute things he doesn’t need, answering work e-mail on vacation, snacking on marshmallows
How I Deal with Dog/Cat Hair: My dog doesn’t shed very much, and when he does we rarely notice because all our furniture is the same shade he is.
What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: When I was a kid I thought I’d be a Broadway actress when I grew up. But this was before I learned that the stage is a cold, cruel mistress.
