Every movie star needs a juicy memoir to his or her name and Uggie the dog is no different. Although it will probably be pretty G-rated compared to other stars' tell-all autobiographies, Uggie has plenty of waggy tales to tell for his upcoming book "Uggie: My Story."
And what a story! The little Jack Russell terrier stole screen time from dreamy Jean Dujardin in "The Artist" and appeared in "Water for Elephants" with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattison. He's currently working as the spokesdog for Nintendo after rumors of retirement, and he was a guest at the White House Correspondents' Dinner over the weekend.
Uggie even had his own grassroots Oscar campaign, Consider Uggie, started by fans who were barking mad that the star wasn't in the running.
It's hard to believe that it hasn't even been a year since "The Artist" premiered at Cannes, but then again, that's seven years to Uggie. And just in case you think this book will be all about the finer things in life, Uggie's life hasn't always been fancy dinners with the Prez. (Sadly, Uggie was unable to partake in the dessert at last Saturday's White House dinner, as it was a giant chocolate concoction — deadly to dogs!) The book will also delve into the darker side of the terrier, including a ghastly cat murder!
We can only imagine what other sorts of secrets he's whispering into the ear of his human ghostwriter Wendy Holden. We'll have to wait until his book comes out in October to find out!
