Dear Joey and Maggie,
Frankie here, with some exciting news about my book!
My book was chosen as the WINNER for the National Best Book Awards for 2008 named by USA BOOK News! I won in the category for Children's Picture Book Non-fiction softcover category.
I'm thrilled to have been recognized with this honor. My mom and I are always happy when our message of hope and inspiration continues to spread out into the world. Bringing a positive face and voice to animals with disabilites means so much to us.
As always, be positive and keep on rolling!!
Wow! Big congrats to you and your mom, Frankie! We'll even throw out a congrats to your dad too, especially after he worked so hard on that costume for you at Milwaukee's Germanfest this year.
Frankie is one of the hardest working dogs we know. As seen above, she even helps out in the garden! (We LOVE that pic!) Frankie, the Walk 'n Roll Dog is a great inspirational read, with beautiful illustrations, and would make a nice gift for the youngsters on your holiday gift list this year. You can even WIN a copy over at the highly recommended Who's Your Dachshund? (Yesterday's hilarious post on WYD, Fritos (aka Corn Dogs) is one of the many reasons to never miss one of their daily posts).
Keep up with Frankie on her blog.
