How old is Frankie?
I am proud to say I am 9 years old! That would be 63 in human years. Gee, guess I am close to retirement age! But don't worry, I have no plans of retiring anytime soon. I love meeting new kids and making new friends.
My birthday is August 20, 1999.

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.
