About Us

John is the husband of Amy, and Father of Adrian. He spent 24 years in the Air Force until retiring in 2015. He now works as a Product Manager at Cisco. He spends most of his time playing with technology, politics, and family.
Amy is the natural leader of the family, and spends all of her time taking care of the rest of the family. Amy is found on Facebook.
Adrian, is the single child of Amy and John. He’s your typical young boy: active, opinionated, funny, goofy, curious, and so on.
Yara is the dog of the household. She came to us via the German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption organization. She’s was previously a breeding dog at a puppy mill, and now spends her time following Amy around the house. She has the sweetest temperament possible, which makes her an excellent pet, but horrible watch dog.
Asha, is the newest member of the Allison Tribe. She comes to us via Calvin Paws. She was a feral cat living in Durham before she was rescued, and she still likes her space. She’s up for petting and cuddles, but only on her terms.
