    Mama Cruz talks to Rob Cooke of Shaytaan Siberian Huskies

    in Entertainment

    The name Rob Cooke to a musher who loves Siberian Huskies is like ice cream to a cone. Known for running his amazing purebred team in the Copper Basin, and the Iditarod, Rob has the miles under his belt to be considered an expert in his field. 


    Along with his wife Louise, the kennel is based in Whitehorse, Yukon Canada. They strive for keeping their Siberians to breed standard, running the mid and distance races.  This is just one of the things we will be talking about in this episode, along with the future of Siberians racing, and being the incredible companions they've always been.

    Brad Johnson: Pro Rescue and Pro Conscientious Breeding with Siberian Huskies

    in Entertainment

    Brad Johnson lives in Indianapolis IN, not too far from me. I met him through social media, and he quickly became one of my go-to people for Siberians in need. Brad has lived and worked with these Siberian "people" as  call them for 40 years, a love that spawned in his childhood from neighbor's dogs. It was 1975 when he bought his first Siberian from a respected musher/breeder. And like many of us, the addiction to these amazing dogs began, and he started showing in confirmation, adding to his pack, mushing and more. 


    Over his years loving this breed, he's seen the division of "show Siberian" and "working Siberian" for lack of better terms, as well as an increase in their popularity for all the wrong reasons. With many of the "snow dog" movies, people see them, think "Oh how cute," and go out and purchase a dog with zero knowledge on the history of the breed and their very specific needs. This has led to a huge increase in the numbers of Siberians ending up in rescues, or worse. It was this trend that inspired Brad to start his work with rescues on eduation and assistance, one of them being Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue. 


    This show will have something for everyone, from the person thinking of rescuing or purchasing a Siberian, to the experienced handler, owner or musher interested in some of the more unfortunate politics involved in the two "types" I mentioned earleir. We will go over the A to Z of being owned by a Siberian, share stories from Brad's 4 decades of living and working with these dogs, and of course his work with Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue. We will talk about what a "good" and ethical breeder is and is not, as well as promoting rescues. 


    So I invite you all to listen in, ask questions and enjoy time listening to someone I consider a friend to Northern Breeds everywhere.

    Boston College Football Week 4: Northern Illinois Huskies

    in Sports

    Well that was miserable.


    After a week of hype, Boston College fans received a gut check on Friday when the Eagles were shut out by Florida State, 14-0. While Florida State is a nationally ranked powerhouse, BC found themselves with plenty of opportunities, yet couldn't convert. By the time the game ended, they also found themselves with a couple of big time injuries as Kevin Kavalec and Darius Wade both went down.


    With a new week comes a new day and a new dawn, and for the BC Eagles, that means turning the page to a new opponent. On Saturday, the Eagles host the Northern Illinois Huskies at Alumni Stadium, the final game of a season-opening four game home stand.


    Tune in at 8 PM or call in at 646-200-0446 to talk some college football with us. We'll be breaking down the Eagles in all phases of the game, and with new perspective, you'll be able to weigh in with the direction where you think BC is headed for the rest of 2015.

    Copper Basin '16 Best Cared for Team Award: Torsten Kohnert

    in Entertainment

    Torsten Kohnert is exactly the person to we need to shine a light on in our mushing world. He is now 44, and the German born Torsten has been mushing for half his life. His recent race, the Copper Basin 300 landed him in 11th place out of 48 teams, and gained him, in my opinion the most prestigious award there is: The Vet's Choice for Best Cared for Team. 


    Torsten's history with sled dogs goes back to 1995 when he moved to Northern Sweded (Lapland) to pursue his passion. He has finished every major race he has entered, including races in Scandinavia Niclas 9 times Finnmark Race (600 mi), 2 Yukon Quests, 2 Copper Basins, and the GinGin 200. 


    Currently, Torsten is living in the beautiful AK to run and race, and his wife and one of two daughters (ages 11 and 14) will join him soon. .  Like many, he has a tour operation with the sled dogs, with 40-50 Huskies in his kennel. And, also like many mushers, living with Nature is a big part of his life, with fishing and hunting to help fill the freezers and his dog's stomachs for those long winter nights.


    We will be talking about those big races mentioned earlier, learn more about how he runs his kennel and the special care he takes of his sled dogs that earned him the Best Cared for Team at the Copper Basin. We will also talk about raising kids with sled dogs, his move to AK, the differences in racing in Lapland vs North America and so much more. 


    And again, is it the opinion of this musher, that the the most important and prestigious award IS Vet's Choice for Best Cared for Team. My knowlegde and experince pales in comparison to his, and most other mushers, but as I've said before, the care, the bond, the love we give to those we are responsible for comes back to us 1000's of time over. It is that trust and love that gets you and your team across that finish line.
