A Puppy's Dream Comes True

Lisa Barbernell-Pliner
A brave puppy begins a fairytale life with her new family.

Meet BabyDoll, a Maltese puppy who is adopted by her human parents, Lisa and Donald. This charming introductory story will make children and parents alike smile as BabyDoll explores her new surroundings, travels around the world, and has her tail highlighted pink. She even helps her humans in designing shoes! This happy tale ends with a surprise—what will happen to BabyDoll next?

​This introductory book is the first in the BabyDoll's Adventures series, enchanting children and parents alike with the amazing adventures of the adorable—and furry—new member of the Pliner family.

Lisa graduated from the University of Texas and St. Edwards University, and then studied at the prestigious Parsons School of Design in Paris, France.
After her time in Europe, she came back home to work with fashion icon, Gianni Versace. Lisa met her husband, Donald J. Pliner, in 1997 and became his muse, collaborating on many shoe designs for over the next fifteen years.  In 2003 Lisa received BabyDoll as a gift from her husband, and during the next eleven years, she gave BabyDoll a life that many could only wish for, filled with tons of love. BabyDoll even had her very own fashion line, “Friends of BabyDoll Pliner,” which consisted of leashes, carriers, and leather wear for four-legged friends.  Lisa cofounded Peace for the Children Foundation, which has provided charitable grants supporting not-for-profit organizations for the past decade. Lisa believes that “if a child could have one day to play like anyone else, children can learn to communicate and play together, no matter their religion or race. It can bring peace.”
Lisa Barbernell-Pliner is a loving wife and mother, successful shoe designer, accomplished philanthropist, and painter. She currently resides in Bel Air, California with her husband Donald, daughter Starr Emmanuelle, and her little ones, Sunset and Moonlite.
