Charmaine is excited to welcome Barbara Techel to the show today.

Barbara is the award-winning author of Frankie, the Walk ‘N Roll Dog children’s book series. When her dachshund, Frankie, suffered a spinal injury, Barbara had her custom-fitted for a wheelchair. Barbara and Frankie made over 400 visits to schools and libraries from 2008-2012 encouraging children to be positive despite their own challenges. Frankie was also a certified therapy dog having made over 250 visits to facilities. Barbara is a passionate advocate for dogs with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD), like Frankie had, and dogs in wheelchairs. She recently founded National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day in memory of Frankie and in honor of all dogs in wheelchairs.  You can learn more about Barbara at www.joyfulpaws.com
