This looks like a cute book from the excerpt in the article!

Part celebrity bio, part Hollywood tell-all, the story of Gidget -- a Chihuahua best known for her work in Taco Bell commercials and the movie Legally Blonde, alongside Reese Witherspoon (who penned the forward) -- not only sheds light on the career of a celebrity dog trainer, but also offers advice on how to apply certain techniques to less famous (but no less loved) pets. Excerpted from A Famous Dog’s Life by Sue Chipperton and Rennie Dyball; printed with permission from NAL, a division of Penguin Group, USA.

That sounds like a great read! Gidget actually played Bruiser's mom in Legally Blonde 2. It's interesting because she looked so tiny in the Taco Bell commercials but when you see her next to Moonie (who played Bruiser), she's so much bigger! Both dogs were rescues, adopted in CA, and trained together as well if I'm not mistaken.
