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.
John 14:27 says "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." It seems as though those are the very words we need to be reminded of today doesn't it? Encouragement for all troubled hearts and minds. When your weary from the battles of life and are seeking refuge, where, who or what do you turn to first? So, it seems God truly understood this when he said these encouraging words to His disciples. Because its just what they needed to hear, and so do we. Until the Lord makes his return, we don't seek to just "hang in there" we seek to overcome daily by the Spirits sword. Yes, as that day comes we must understand that the world, its ideals, patterns, temptations, enticements and way of living and thinking will become more vile, sensual and fleshly. And if your weary from all that.....your not alone. And so God lovingly encourages us to fine rest in Him, and Him alone. These are encouraging words for you......the weary soldier today.
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!

Dogfather and the PBA crew.
People all over the world have been riveted by the story of Cairo, the Belgian Malinois who was a part of the Navy SEAL team that led the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound. A dog's natural intelligence, physical abilities, and pure loyalty contribute more to our military efforts than ever before. You don't have to be a dog lover to be fascinated by the idea that a dog-the cousin of that furry guy begging for scraps under your table-could be one of the heroes who helped execute the most vital and high-tech military mission of the new millennium.
Now Maria Goodavage, editor and featured writer for one of the world's most widely read dog blogs, tells heartwarming stories of modern soldier dogs and the amazing bonds that develop between them and their handlers. Beyond tales of training, operations, retirement, and adoption into the families of fallen soldiers, Goodavage talks to leading dog-cognition experts about why dogs like nothing more than to be on a mission with a handler they trust, no matter how deadly the IEDs they are sniffing, nor how far they must parachute or rappel from aircraft into enemy territory.
"Military working dogs live for love and praise from their handlers," says Ron Aiello, president of the United States War Dogs Association and a former marine scout dog handler. "The work is all a big game, and then they get that pet, that praise. They would do anything for their handler." This is an unprecedented window into the world of these adventurous, loving warriors.
Talking with two authors today. First, Tom Cohen, author of "Dogs with Old Man Faces", celebrating dogs with 'old souls'. Then host, Julie Forbes talks with Ardeth De Vries, President of the Board of Old Dog Haven, a non-profit that is a large network of foster homes that gets old dogs out of shelters! www.olddoghaven.org
Old Dog Haven: "We want our dogs to know that someone thinks they're valueable. Old dogs can become throw-away dogs that become expendable, for whatever reason, and it's very important to us that they're able to spend time with people who validate their importance."
