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.

Not A Used Dog, At All by Carol Erickson

The Dog Writer's of America Association once again held their yearly prestigous awards banquet in New York on Feb. 13th, 2011.  While my author mom, Barbara Techel and I were nominated in the category of best children's book for Frankie the Walk 'N Roll Therapy Dog Visits Libby's House, along with author Carol Erickson and Carol Rauch, we did not attend this years event.  But we wanted to shout out a big congratulations to Carol Erickson for winning in the children's book category for Not a Used Dog, At All.

What a wonderful book to shine a positive light on animals in shelters and resuce.  We have no doubt this book will help many animals find loving homes.  Bravo, Carol!  Bravo!  All profits from this book will be donated to animal rescue and shelters groups
