Meet Henri Hopper

Meet Henri Hopper...

He is a beautiful French Bulldog from San Diego.

I am so excited because I will get to meet him and his mom Liz at the Pug Party I am going to be a vendor at in San Diego on May 3rd.




He and his mom, Liz, have a great blog and an Etsy Shop that tell of all of Henri's adventures and showcase Liz's art. Liz and Henri were sweet enough to purchase one of my crocheted pug finger puppets and documented the homecoming.

I am so excited because I just treated myself to Liz's painting, Green Henri. He is going to live in my office and inspire me everyday. Don't you think he will be a great friend for Emmitt when he is riding around in his spaceship?



Speaking of Emmitt in his spaceship, I was inspired by two of my favorite bloggers, Abby Creek Art and Art Dog Blog, to try and create a digital painting of Emmitt. I used his spaceship photo and created the painting above. You must check out the beautiful digital paintings Rebecca of Art Paw creates using your own photos. Her work is amazing!

Hi Melissa-
Thanks for the plug. Your digital Emmitt is great. Boy that Frenchie is one laid back little dude. The shot of him belly up with finger puppet is way too cute.

Henri is a most handsome boy! We would love to have a little Henri over here....even if it was only a painting to inspire us. I'll have to check out her etsy shop!

Pug party, how fun!! I so want to go!! But alas I will be attending my own pug party in Seattle May 10th, for the Seattle Pug Rescue group. So exciting can't wait!

Love the digital painting of Emmitt (and such a cute pic of him with the tongue), and Henri is just adorable. I'll bet he and Emmitt will be fast friends. :-)
