When I was 17 years old, I had a paper route. When Toni Bartolomie was 17, she owned and operated the Doggy Style Gallery in Whitesboro. Now at age 20, her business is expanding. We're impressed!

This is truly a story of a local kid doing well. It started when Toni went to the Rochester Institute of Dog Grooming and became certified. I asked her how she handles the business aspect of ownership and she handles it all herself from hiring an assistant to filing her taxes.

This is the future waiting room of the Doggy Style Gallery.

We can't wait to take our pet, Snickers, to her newly expanded location, which is really just next door to where she is now on Roosevelt Drive in Whitesboro. Toni expect to open the doors in August where now, not only can you have your pets bathed and groomed, but now, boarding. Way to go Toni, we're proud of ya!
