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.

It's a Birthday Celebration!!

I love birthday's... and today I turn a whole big 10! That is only 56 in hooman years... check out the new updated dog chart for your dog's hooman age.
Today I will visit the patients at Sharon S. Richarson Hospice and wear my birthday hat for them, as you see above. I hope it will make them smile. I have a feeling it will.
I just want to say to each of you who follow my adventures... a BIG THANK YOU... ARF-A-ROO... I feel like the luckiest dog in the world to have so many who love me... and I love all of you right back. WOOF!!

In honor of my birthday please go hug your dog, your cat, your horse, your bird, your ferret... or whover it is you love!! ARF-A-ROO!
