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.
Julie Forbes, Seattle's Dog behavior, training and nutrition specialist, as well as host of her own radio show, The Dog Talk Show will interview my mom, author Barbara Techel about life with me, a disabled dachshund. Hope you can join us! If you can't listen live, you can always check out the pawdcast at a later date!
