Sign that reads Motordog the perfect pet.

"Flip the kid found Motor Dog by scrolling though a catalogue."

Motordog is the true-ish story of my dog Bella, who has often pulled my arm from its socket without the help of a rocket.

"'Then he lit his booster rocket. Flip's right shoulder left its socket."

"He wasn't on a leash, it's true. But still he stuck to Flip like glue, their hearts connected with a string: the bond of love-a wondrous thing. (And some electrostatic cling.)"

Dog saving boy from falling.

Motordog is published by Disney-Hyperion Books, 2014. "An amusing fable for the techno-savvy and Luddites alike" says Kirkus. and Publishers Weekly says "An irreverent tribute to the bond between boy and (bionically enhanced) dog."
