During this episode, I am going to speak with Steven Laviolette and his family about not just living with sled dogs, but living life THROUGH them.
For those listening that already roll with this crazy life in and around sled dogs, you understand the sacrifices, the joys and the mushing lifestyle. But as this sport makes its rebound, with young folks up and coming, enthusiats and companion owners of these Northern Breeds getting interested for the first time in mushing, opening up the campfire style discussions of just what it takes to maintain a kennel of healthy, happy sled dogs, but the lessons these dogs teach us about how to live, and how to love.
The everyday upkeep of a mushing kennel is just where this life begins. You tell most folks out there just the basics of nutritious diets, fresh water, clean kennels, Vetting and of course daily exercise in harness, and they scratch their heads and wonder not only WHY we continue to do what we do, but do so with such passion and determination. THAT is what I would like this conversation with the Tuuluuwak mushers to cover.
THE SANCTUARY FOR SENIOR DOGS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue, adoption, and lifelong care of senior dogs abandoned in shelters and pounds. All of our dogs live in Sanctuary-approved foster homes until a permanent home can be found. Senior dogs too ill to be adopted stay in a Sanctuary hospice foster home for life. All senior dogs are spayed or neutered prior to placement. Join me as I speak with Deborah Workman from the sanctuary and learn about all they do for senior dogs. They are located in Cleveland Ohio. www.SanctuaryforSeniorDogs.org
Your generous donation allows our work with the abandoned senior dog population to continue and to grow. Without your support, our work would not be possible.
We are going to have Matthew Failor of the 17th Dog team here to talk with us for an hour about not just "Life With Sled Dogs," but "Life THROUGH Sled Dogs:" The why's of mushing in the first place, and what living through them means to Matthew himself.
As this show is new and most may not know me, I want to explain a bit more on what I mean by life WITH and life THROUGH sled dogs. Lfie with the sled dogs means everything from a personal bio to what the dogs are fed, and life THROUGH is going to cover the very basics of why we mush in the first place, to what these majestic creatures have taught us about living, loving and doing right.
The converstaion is going to be very from-the-hip in an "around the campfire" tone; As sled dog enthusiasts and mushers, we ALL have a story to tell, a new perspective to share and lessons to pass along, regardless of what size our kennels are and if our names are recognized throughout the community, or not.
Matthew has a background that spans tourism with the sled dogs, as well as racing, and has some fantastic perspectives to share, and stories a-plenty. I do hope you'll join us for this conversation!

Every dog is special, but some people are lucky enough to have dogs that in some way touch the hearts of everyone. In this show you will meet three people who have or have worked with such dogs. Before our feature guests, Dr. Jason Nicholas will give us some pet safety tips for the holidays.
Our first feature guest is Eric Ristau, the producer and director of the new documentary film, Sit Stay Ride: The Story of America's Sidecar Dogs. This film tells the stories of several people who travel on motorcycles with their dog in a side car such as the man confined to a wheel chair, and the senior dog with health issues that has new energy for life when riding in the sidecar and feeling the open air blowing in his face and bringing a steady stream of new smells and sensations.
Next you will meet Madalyn Ruggiero, who will share with us the legacy of her dog Denali who fell to nasal cancer but lived every day to the fullest spreading joy and love. It is not a story of sorrow, but one of hope.
Lastly, you will meet Richard Nash and Hudson the Railroad Puppy, who was found nailed to railroad tracks and is now living a happy life with a prosthetic leg and working as a therapy dog for children with prosthetics.
If you love dogs and the special bond they have with us, don't miss these stories. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a desire to hug your dog!
