I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Barbara Techel's beloved dog, Frankie. It's not often I shed tears for other people's pets, especially people that I've never even met in person before. I did for Barbara and Frankie. This little dachshund has touched so many lives in her short lifetime. My heart aches for Barbara and her husband, John. I know how painful losing a pet is. It's even more difficult when you've experienced an illness or injury, and have helped a pet to regain a normal life. It's not an easy thing to do.
Obviously, I can't tell Frankie's story as well as Barbara, so I urge you to check out her website to learn more about this wonderful, little dog and all of the lives she's touched. I bought Barbara's picture book, Frankie The Walk 'n Roll Dog for Neil's birthday a few years back. He loved it, as did I. Please check out Barbara's website to see how you can help other dogs like Frankie.
To Barbara and John -- You're in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.
