Frankie and I are starting this blog to communicate with school children who we may not get to actually visit in person. We hope it will be a way children can learn about Frankie and ask questions. Frankie and I love sharing our message with kids and we hope we can inspire many more kids by having this blog. We were inspired by a 7th grade class in Canada to start this blog. Karen, the teacher contacted me and told me the kids had watched Frankie's video. The kids are putting together their own compassion video's. They were so inspired by Frankie's story that they are doing raffles to raise money to donate to animals in need. Isn't that wonderful? So thank you, Karen and all the 7th graders. We look forward to answering your questions soon via our new blog that you inspired!!
We will keep you posted as we make progress and see where this will take us. In the meantime, remember, Always be positive and keep on rolling!

When her dachshund, Frankie, suffered a spinal injury, Barbara had her custom-fitted for a wheelchair. Frankie persevered, and Barbara realized the beautiful opportunity she had to share Frankie and give others hope and inspiration to be the best they can be. Along with sharing Frankie’s story with children, Barbara and Frankie routinely volunteer as a therapy dog team at a local hospital, senior assisted facility, and hospice community, spreading joy wherever they go.
