Opinionated four-pound Maltese Chiclet T. Dog and her human co-author Jan Rasmusen have done it again! Not content with multiple national awards for their book, 'Scared Poopless,' they have taken their case for more informed canine care to YouTube with Chiclet's appropriately entitled video "Fame Is A Bitch!"

Chiclet's star turn became the #6 Top Favorite pet video--and the top dog video--its first week out. It's the tale of how a tiny dog survived the scandals of her party-girl past and went on to become an award-winning author, philanthropist and healer. Jan calls it the story of "a canine Florence Nightingale with a Paris Hilton past."

Starring Chiclet and her boyfriend J. Doggy Dog, the amusing four-minute video warns humans that they're wrecking their dogs' health with poor quality pet food, outdated vaccine protocols and dangerous pet medications. It's a compelling case for more informed health care, enlivened with off-the-wall humor, a heartwarming story line and some of the best dog photography around.

Celebrities like actress/activist Betty White and the canine star Benji have endorsed Chiclet's views, as have the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and Animal Wellness Magazine. Chiclet is a serious teacher, not just another pretty canine face.

Unfortunately, Chiclet's work and the accompanying fame have taken their toll on the tiny canine crusader. The endless benefit book signings with no Doggy Ladies Rooms in sight, not to mention the embarrassing exposure of her sordid past by muckraking pawparazzi, have made Chiclet a bit cynical, reports Jan. When asked to describe her life, Chiclet sums it up as "ruff!"

For both authors, fame is sometimes a bitch. But helping dogs live longer, healthier lives is wonderfully satisfying.
