No not an information book, but a novel by Jacqueline Susann
I read the book when I was a teen and had my toy poodle. I think I read it twice because she described the breed so well. I don't know if it's still in print, but if it is, it's a good and funny read. A word of note - she also wrote Valley of the Dolls - and her books could be considered a bit racy - including this one.
I think it's time for me to read it again.
