Author: Toni Perling

Atlanta's own Toni Perling is a writer and web content provider, mostly about dogs and names, hence, her two beautiful rescue dogs Daisy Jo and Bud Earl, and hence, her collection of dog names and trends at the website 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.
