Brazilian Girls like HGBA too

We first hit Brazil back in December 2009, when this blog posted an article on our 2010 calendar (who speaks Portuguese?) But we’re still going strong there, thanks to HGBA buddy, Pam, who shared the site with some coworkers in Rio.

So, so grateful

It has come to our attention that our automatically generated order reply message is written like someone who learned English in another country. It reminds me of the signs I used to see when I traveled through Japan that are so polite and repetitive, they actually don’t mean anything at all.

Here is what you will receive via email when you order one of our calendars:

Thank you, your purchase is pending, you will be sent an email once the order clears.

Thank you for your purchase.  You should have received a confirmation email, and your order is being processed.  It will be on its way soon!

Thank you for purchasing with Hot Guys and Baby Animals. Your calendar will be shipped as soon as possible.

I assure you, we did not write this copy. I think, way back last year when we designed the site, we thought this would be three separate emails. We should probably change it, but I find it sort of hilarious.

Sweet post on Ecorazzi today

We like their headline: “Here’s That ‘Hot Guys And Baby Animals’ Calendar You’ve Been Looking For.”

Ah yes, there it is. I’ve been looking for that.

It’s nice to be recognized for “actually trying to make a difference.” Is that what we’re doing? I thought we were just looking for excuses to play with cute puppies and hot dudes. Oh right, we’re also helping the cute puppies get adopted. And helping the hot dudes. Um. Get chicks. (And we don’t mean the baby chicken kind).

Check out the whole Ecorazzi article.

Last weekend’s shoot brings some of the cutest pups yet.

How can a producer stay stressed out with coworkers like these:

Our big shoot is coming up!

Hot Guys and Baby Animals will be shooting all weekend in Los Angeles, CA for our 2012 calendar and first ever book (more info to come on that!)

Since our photographer lives in the Bay Area, we always squeeze in as man models as possible in a weekend in LA. This is tough, as LA has many, many hot guys AND baby animals to offer. It is sure to be an exciting weekend. We’ll post some pics as soon as we get them.

We’re still looking for baby animals, male models and a photography assistant. If know anyone interested, please drop us a line at info (at) hot guys and baby animals (dot) com
