Our Friend Frankie The Walk 'n Roll Dog
Our hearts go out to human Barbara Techel and the family and friends of the busiest Dachshund we ever knew, Frankie The Walk'n Roll Dog. Frankie, therapy dog and subject of the Walk'n Roll Dog book series, passed away yesterday at home in her mother's arms after being diagnosed with chronic heart failure just last Friday. With the help of her mom, Frankie inspired thousands with her messages of overcoming challenges and making a difference despite obstacles. Although Frankie is no longer with us, we know that her messages of hope will live on for generations.
Please visit Joyful Paws to read of her life and of her passing.
