Have your dog featured in our calendar!

Dawgdom, Heather Bohm-Tallman Photography and Lis Designs are teaming up to produce a calendar of local shelter dogs! Proceeds from calendar sales will be donated to Local Animal Shelters and Rescue Organizations.


We're looking for dogs who reside within Saratoga (and surrounding counties) and who were adopted from a shelter or rescue organization. The shelter or rescue group the dog was adopted from can be located anywhere within the U.S.

To be considered for the calendar, schedule a session with
Heather Bohm Tallman Photography.

Session fees will be 1/2 off for any shelter/rescue group dog who would like to be considered for the calendar, and includes a free 8 X 10 print! Please contact Heather Bohm-Tallman Photography at for more details. Write "dog model search" in the subject heading and please let us know which shelter or rescue group you adopted your dog from.

*This special is for Dog Sessions Only.
*Weekday Session Dates are preferred.
*Weekend dates are very limited.

While we love all doggies, not everyone will make it into the calendar.

The calendar will be available for sale in late November - Just in time for the Holidays!

Great Blog Post about Dog Puke

So, this a blog post borrowed from another blog bark-n-blog. Considering how much Bodily Dog Function I see at the store I found this wonderfully amusing. I hope all you dog lovers do to!

The Four Types of Dog Vomit


Dog runs around the house and hides under furniture while making a prolonged “uurka-guurka, uurka-guurka” noise (the only noise guaranteed to wake up a dog lover who is hungover from a 3:30am post-dog-show celebration). After a mad scramble to capture the dog and drag him outside, the episode ends with an indelible line of slimy yellow froth from the living room rug to the back door.


Dog exercises hard and

a) eats large mouthfuls of snow (winter blap disease) or
b) drinks a bucket of water (summer blap disease).

Within two minutes of returning inside the dog spews out large amounts of clear, slimy liquid, making a distinctive “blap” sound and sharp percussive noise as it hits the linoleum.


Dog suddenly clears his throat with loud and dramatic “gggark, gggark” noises, followed by a prolonged “iiksss” and then loud, satisfied smacking noises. There is nothing on the rug. Don’t investigate, you don’t want to know.


Apropos of nothing, the dog strolls into the dining room and waits ’til the innocent dinner guests are all watching him. Then, with a single deep gut-wrenching “raaaallff”, disgorges the entire week’s contents of his
stomach on the rug. Variation: he eats it.

In all of the above events, the dog is entirely healthy and indeed, deeply pleased with himself.
