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.

National Pet Week- There is Hope Campaign Continues- Video Message

My mom tells me and others all the time how much she has learned from me.  Just because I'm physcially challenged does not mean I am not happy.  I'm dog-gone happy!  So in continuing our "There is Hope" campaign to bring positive awareness to all animals with disabilites we put together this special little video for you.  Please sure to visit our previous post and let us know if you are sharing our message with others by leaving a comment.  Your name will be entered into a drawing to win some GREAT, FUN prizes!!  But hurry, ends May 8th!

Loved video and gosh Frankie, you look like you're "hating" life all snuggled up on Momma's lap. Precious baby. I shared this on my Facebook and hope that's ok. <3

I am going to share http://www.joyfulpaws.com/ on the forum I belong to as well. If you'd like to take a peek it's: http://dachsie.org/vbb/forum.php

I really love Frankie's story and would love to see it encourage others who may be having issues with a special needs pup. She's an inspiration for me. :)
