Wildebeest creates the perfect present for new dog parents.10
Atlanta's own Toni Perling is a writer and web content provider, mostly about dogs, hence her blogger name, Doggienista. :) And hence, her two beautiful rescues dogs: Daisy Jo and Bud Earl. She tweets for them at DaisyJoBudEarl, and shares her collection of dog names and trends at DoggieNames.com. Toni started asking her parents for a puppy pretty much the minute she learned to speak, but they held off until she was the ripe old age of 10, when the family welcomed a Miniature Schnauzer named Truffles. In between, she inhaled every book about dogs ever written and can pretty much identify any breed by sight. She's also a longtime supporter of spay/neuter/rescue, and adopted her first dog, a sweet lovable mutt named Sophie, from an L.A. County shelter.
A TV trivia fiend, Toni's also a huge fan of the butt-kicking trio known as Charlie's Angels (the originals and the movies). In fact, she started out in Hollywood as a TV writer, with credits ranging from network drama to informational, including a boatload of episodes of a little Discovery Networks show named "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant," before transitioning to the web.
