Frankie and Sparkles Making the News- Far & Wide!

I've been catching up on my naps after my whirlwind mini-tour with Sparkles the Safety Dog last week!  Now the news of our adventure is spreading far and wide... pretty hot-diggity dog exciting!  Today in the Courier News in Russelville, Arkansas our story was featured as "Virtual Friends."  Cara, the reporter did a tail waggin' good job of interviewing my mom, Barbara, and Sparkles mom, Dayna.  You can read the full story at Courier News.
