Sue Chipperton started her career in Florida working with dolphins, and has been a studio animal trainer for nearly two decades.

Rennie Dyball is a People magazine writer and co-author of Christian Siriano's Fierce Style.
"She walked the red carpet and traveled by limo and private jet. She befriended the hottest A-list celebrities and amassed millions of fans herself. She was the most famous four-pound starlet in history. And she loved every minute of it. Her name was Gidget. To the world she was the Taco Bell dog. Until now, no one has ever told the extraordinary story of this irresistible pup's charmed life, on-screen and off--from her acclimation into a new home and family (including a cattle dog named Beans, who wasn't exactly thrilled with her new sister) to the studious training she loved and craved. And finally to the television campaign that gave Gidget a voice, not to mention impeccable comic timing. Part celebrity bio and part Hollywood tell-all (from a pint-size perspective), Gidget's story is an illuminating human one as well, chronicling the work of Gidget's devoted trainer, Sue Chipperton, and their life together. Sue details the training techniques she uses for her TV and movie animals and how they apply tothe training and animal psychology of everyone's pets. She reveals fascinating stories of working with such stars as Clint Eastwood, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon--and Moonie, Gidget's Chihuahua roommate and the eventual star of Legally Blonde, who becamea key part of both Sue's and Gidget's lives. Sue also shares what every pet lover can relate to: the grief that can come from losing your best pal, and overcoming it. In A Famous Dog's Life, Sue Chipperton shares all her delightful tales, investing humor, genuine warmth, and rare insight into one of the freshest and most uncommon Hollywood success stories ever told"--
