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.
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!
From sled dog enthusiasts to mushers, Matthew Failor has something to offer everyone when it comes to talking dogs. Matthew is a friend, so the conversation will be light while we cover life on the glacier, his new pups, and training for the Iditarod.

"The dogs have taught us the right skills and mindset to transcend our conditions, and in fact utilize those conditions as a source of strength." ~ Liz
"They are such incredible teachers, the dogs show us the way to engage with our own lives for personal fulfillment, accomplishment and joy." ~ Barb
Liz Parrish, had three goals for running the 2008 Iditarod: train her own team, complete the race to celebrate her 50thbirthday, and have fun! Mission accomplished.
From a challenging start beating childhood cancer, other significant health issues, and zero sled dog experience, she devoted 10 years of her life to accomplish her dream.
Barbara Schaefer suffered a traumatic brain injury at her first sled dog race, resulting in a number of debilitating conditions. She devoted the next several years to healing through taking care of her dogs.
The focus and patience the sled dogs taught helped her face life’s challenges & gave her the perseverance to move forward.
Join us and hear how Liz & Barb leveraged their relationships with their dogs to find healing.

Al Diaz and co-host Julian share their insights on Experiments with the Paleo Diet.
Tuesday, December 1st 10am PST
Julian has been experimenting with different diets his entire life. More recently he has been experimenting with what is usually called The Paleo Diet, Julian prefers to think of it as our Most Natural Ancestral Diet. He had been feeding his dogs their Ancestral diet for 7 year before it occurred to him to start eating his own Ancestral diet. The results were instant. One of the symptoms that disappeared was chronic lower back pain that he had struggled with for 5 years.
