I apologize to everyone this morning, as I was having serious technical difficulties getting the show going. So, once I managed to fix things, I started a new broadcast, and what an hour it was.
Tommy Bird is one of the finest story tellers I've had the pleasure to speak with, and he has promised to return again to tell us more. He shares his life from a wee boy through today working with these sled dogs we so love, stories from the trap line, his races and a few tips on how he manages his team, and why they are so very exceptional.

Join UIF Founder Tim Ray as he interviews Maxwell Ivey - the blind blogger on UI Radio.
Maxwell is a 49-year-old blind gentleman who grew up in a family of carnival owners. All he ever wanted to do was to continue in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and be part of the family business. He did help in the business over the years, but couldn’t sustain it after the early death of my father (who had lung cancer). Then he turned to helping people sell their amusement equipment at The Midway Marketplace.
He started blogging to promote that site and met a lot of wonderful people in the blogosphere. He has an amazing story and many commented on how he inspired them and he realized he had a bigger purpose in life.
So, he started the second blog, and in it I share more of my personal journey, struggles, and triumphs. He has appeared as a guest, an interview subject, and a motivator on many different sites.
He does his best to help others, and do so mostly by encouraging them to take steps towards their ultimate goal, or to continue on the path they have started.

Dogs. They're our best friends. Our companions. They're our protectors at home. But the average person rarely gives thought to the countless canines who serve on police units keeping us safe every day. What does it take to be a police dog? What kind of dogs make the best kind of K-9 cops? In this episode of The Missy Show, hosts J and D seek to find out the process these heroic animals must go through to be chosen for the honor of serving and protecting their human friends. Don't miss it! Saturday, April 9th at 5pm Central.

For those that know me, you know our motto is "Spiritual Enlightenment Through Sled Dogs." This is the basis for why Stormhawk Siberians do what we do. Although I freely speak of this, within many First Nations people who utilize sled dogs, it is NOT. Permission from the Elders must be sought, messages from Great Father and Ancestors must be delivered before these Sacred things can be spoken of to those non First Nations peoples.
So given this, it is my supreme honor that Marvin Noel Lizotte from Ecotourism Adventures has been given the go-ahead to speak with us on these most Sacred of topics: First Nations Spirituality with sled dogs.
Now, I know that the vast majority of you that listen in already know mushing. But this is a singular opportunity to know how this lifestyle we adore formed 1000's of years ago, and was then graciously passed though the generations, and to us today. As we all know, these sled dogs hold Magic in their Souls, and Marvin is going to tell us how that came to be.
No matter your level of skill with mushing, THIS is going to be a show to listen to. The early hour is of course so Marvin can speak with us, and then get on to the day's business with the dogs. Have a look at what he does at www.dogsledtour.ca on the web, and then join us early for the show, or listen on demand at your convenience thereafter!

For those of you that follow the show, you know I have mushers give props to their mentors. Well it's time for me to do the same with one of our own, Steven Laviolette of Tuuluuwak Sled Dogs. Steven is, in my definition, a true musher. He is the 4th generation, and raising the 5th in this wonderful lifestyle we love. His dogs are Siberian, and as I've seen with my own eyes, cared for as if they were his own flesh and blood children. You see, these dogs have, for going on 5 generations of people, been necessary to their lives for more than just the love of the mush. They are relied upon for feeding the family as they go out to hunt and trap, in the Traditional ways.
One of the things we are going to discuss is living a Traditional life where hunting and trapping in a part of survival, not sport. Done with prayer and reverence, the Gifts of Nature are just that: GIFTS. We will talk about Indigenous Beliefs and the thanks given for these Gifts versus sport hunting in a traditional musher's life, and how these dogs make survival possible, and are rewarded for their work on our behalf.
We are going to talk about raising children in the mushing lifestyle, and how this builds responsibility, character and compassion for ALL Living Beings. Steven will also talk about his kennel of Siberians, life on the trail in Quebec, races and tours, as well as the Spiritual aspects of a life he loves though these sled dogs. And of course, stories from the trail and times these dogs have saved his life.
He is mentor to many, although he will not claim to be, as he too seeks guidance from those he respects. We are going to talk about the importance of mentors in mushing, and the community we are so lucky to be a part of. Steven has been an invaluable friend and mentor to me, and my beloved Siberians for years now, and I invite you all to listen in, call in, and enjoy!
