Fur Baby Friday: Life and Times of Alison and Justin

Get ready for one good looking included! Alison looks shockingly like Carrie Underwood, and she is one of the sweetest bloggers I know. Her baby, Cruz, is seriously adorable and I think Alison loves her as much as I love my Maisy (which is saying A LOT!)


Well Hello! Alison here from Life and Times of Alison & Justin.
I am so excited to be apart of Julie's Fur Baby Friday series. 
Our fur baby is Cruz. She is a 2 year old yellow lab. She pretty much rocks our world.

My family has always grown up with dogs and to be more precise labs.
So when Justin met me and his family had never had a dog, he quickly realized life with me meant life with a dog and most likely a lab.

Before our wedding {June 2009} I started scouring the internet for breeders in our area that were having litters that would be ready to go home around the time we got home from our honeymoon.
 We knew we wanted a female lab, I wanted a chocolate and Justin wanted a yellow so we decided we would just see what we could find. I somehow ended up finding a wonderful lady on kijiji named Bonnie who had just had a litter and the timing would be perfect.
Long story short: I hounded this lady with an excess amount of messages, found out she had 1 female left, I begged her to save her for us, she did, we went to meet Cruz a few days after our wedding, fell in love and picked her up the day after we got home from our honeymoon.
 The rest is history and life would not be the same without her.

Cruz loves the water. My family has a lake cabin and Cruz is at her happy place when we are at the lake. She loves to play fetch and will play from sun rise to sun down.

She also loves sticks.

 Is pretty darn beautiful if you ask me!

 She often gets to lick our ice cream bowls. Which she thinks is pretty awesome.

 She also once thought we left the remainder of a carrot cake on the counter for her. 
Smart girl though, she went for the icing only!
I also once came home to this one day.
 Destroyed her bed, my book, 2 pairs of my sandals...
She blogged about it, you can read it here.

 She may not always be in my good books but she is a mama's girl.
And it never takes long to forgive her.

Justin worked tirelessly with her on tricks so we are proud to say that Cruz can sit, lay down, stay, catch a treat off her nose {most of the time}, leave it and you put treats on her paws-tell her to leave it and then won't take them until you say ok. She does not like being on her back so the roll over trick or the play dead isn't her favorite but sometimes will humour Justin with them.
That's all! Thank for having us Julie. You can read more about Cruz (pretty much daily!) over at my blog!

Happy Friday!


All of their gorgeous family photos has me itching to get some done! Cruz is seriously photogenic. Cruz and I definitely have one thing in common- go straight for the cream cheese icing! :)

And guess what? It's Alison's birthday!!! Happy Birthday, pretty lady!
Thanks so much for being here, Alison!
