My NEW website!

Pet Portraits by Aimée (www.aimeeehoover.com) website re-design

My new & improved online gallery

After years of “re-design apathy” and a solid month of hard work, I finally have a brand new website! Among other things, the new site incorporates this blog, so this is the last post at dogarteest.wordpress.com. From now on you can just go to ONE site to see what’s new. What a thought.

To check out the new site, hop on over to www.aimeehoover.com and read the blog post announcing the new look.

See you there…and thanks for reading!

As someone whose occupation necessitates mass amounts of solitary time, walking to Starbucks during the work week qualifies as an actual “outing” (seriously).

So you can imagine my excitement when I got to be a part of The Bonnie Hunt Show this week…cartwheels!

I’m not even going to try to act cool about this whole thing and delete all my italics and exclamation points. It was a complete thrill!!! And the cast, crew – basically everyone we came in contact with – were all just as friendly and welcoming as Bonnie herself.

But even with three exclamation points, it’s hard to truly express how 1.) surreal it was and 2.) how grateful I feel to have even had this experience, considering what I do for a living. I mean, really – who invites dog artists to be on talk shows? Exactly.

The show airs this Monday, January 18th, 2010. You can check out Bonnie’s website for exact show times in your area.

In the meantime, here’s a few behind the scenes pics from zee best outing I have had since my last latté…

Parking spot just steps from the studio door...sweet.

I stole this.

Trying to act cool in my big dressing room.

NOT trying to act cool.

In hair & makeup. Elizabeth (right) and Kay (not in frame) were awesome.

Last hike of the jeans before being mic'd up.

Thanks, as always, for reading. (And for watching on Monday!)
