“Spike is a very funny English Bull Terrier with a keen comedic eye for human foibles. He rockets to TV and internet fame after appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, along with his master Bud, who hosts a local morning show in High Point, North Carolina. Spike and Bud soon hit the fast track to bigger stardom when Bud signs on for a talk show in New York City and they embark on an endless stream of mind-boggling adventures.” (provided by publisher)
Here are just a few of the rave reviews “Spike” is getting
“A quick escape from life’s stresses with this funny and witty read. Bill Boggs has written a satire populated with a cast of characters worthy of a hit comedy.”
—Talia Carter, author of The Third Daughter, Hotel Moscow, Jerusalem Maiden, and others.
“OMG! Who could write such an outrageous novel? Spike the Wonder Dog! With a little help from his pal, the raconteur Bill Boggs, Spike has gotten his memoirs down (on a better grade of paper than most pets get). His dog-eared hearing picks up the bizarre sounds of people being their fallible human selves, and his soft canine eyes see more than is probably good for him. Spike the Wonder Dog is an irreverent hoot.”
—Susan Isaacs, New York Times Bestselling Author
“The Adventures of Spike the Wonder Dog is so smart, witty, and inventive that I had to keep reminding myself that I didn’t write it.”
—Alan Zweibel, Original SNL writer and Thurber Prize winning author of The Other Shulman
“Bill Boggs and his friend Spike the Wonder Dog unleash comedic wizardry in this madcap, highly entertaining, satirical novel. Spike is the newest canine literary hero to take on the world with hilarious results.”
—Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump
