About Me

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.

G.R.I.T.S Kidz Book Club



Hey kids! Do you like to read? Well, you should if you don't. Reading takes you places without ever leaving your favorite chair or ever leaving the comfort of your bedroom! Oh, the things you will learn and how interesting life can be when you read, read, read!


Ok, enough of my little sermon about reading... hee hee. But seriously, if you LOVE to read I want to tell you about a really cool on line book club called G.R.I.T.S Kidz Book Club.

You can meet other kids safely on line that like to read. What is really cool is this site is maintained by kid power (like this site is maintained by dog power)! You can even submit a review of your favorite books too! Hint: Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog might be a book you'd like to send in a review about, so other kids can learn about me!


Share your love of books and reading and meet kids from around the world! Check it out today! And if you decide to write a review about your favorite dog (hint: that would be me!)... be sure and let me know and I'll share it on my blog too! Arf-a-roo!!

Hi Frankie! I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get over here to see you. Thanks for coming by my place and leaving a comment. I'm following you now so I will be able to keep up with all your adventures. I am also going to add you to my "More Wiener Dog Blogs" blogroll. So nice to meet you and I look forward to becoming furiends!
Love and hugs,
