Barbara Techel is the author of the multi-award winning Frankie, the Walk ‘N Roll Dog book series. 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.

Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog Will Turn Ten Soon! Let's Celebrate!

Hard to believe with as cool as I look in these pink shades that I could possibly be turning 10 already... but it is oh, so true! The big day is Thursday, August 20th! So, let's celebrate the whole month of August. Hey, why not? Life is short, we must celebrate each and every day!

So here is the deal... the best gift I want is to be able to donate some money to a really, really awesome foundation that provides wheelchairs for animals who may not have the chance to have one and who really need one. It is Handicapped Pets Foundation. And you can help... and it is really easy to do... and it is FREE. How great is this?

So for every 50 NEW people who sign up to follow me via Facebook or Twitter we will donate $25.00 to Handicapped Pets Foundation. My goal (and cap) is 1,000 new followers which will mean $500 to the foundation! Oh, how that would make my tail wag if I can accomplish this. So here is how you can help.

Sign up to follow me on Facebook or Twitter. If you are already following me, please let your friends and family know about my fund raising efforts and see if they can help... tell them it is easy and free! You can share this post with them.

If you have a Facebook account you can help spread the word by posting this message:

Help Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog raise money for Handicapped Pets Foundation simply by following her at http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=93350378942

If you have a Twitter account you can share this with your Tweeple and ask them to Retweet, pretty please:

And there is one more way you can help if you'd like...

A portion of all book sales for the month of August will go to Handicapped Pets Foundation. If you have not gotten a copy of my NEW activity book, now would be a perfect time. And there is always my first book, Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog which makes a great gift for anyone age 3-93 or any dachshund or dog lover.

It is a dog-gone honor to bring positive awareness to animals with disabilities and a foundation that helps disabled animals live long, happy, quality lives. So let's celebrate my birthday and all animals on earth! Arf-a-roo!!
