Is Uggie pulling a Steven Soderbergh?
The canine star of "The Artist" was supposedly going to be retiring from show business after making his appearance at the Oscars. Well, now that "The Artist" took home a whole bunch of those Oscars, a lot of job offers are no doubt piling up in Uggie's doghouse -- which means plans for retiring to a life of lounging by the pool might've been a bit premature.
However, Uggie has gone in a rather unexpected direction following his scene-stealing turn in this year's Best Picture winner: he's gone and gotten himself an office day job. Specifically, he's now the official Spokesdog for Nintendo, the company behind "Nintendogs + cats" and other fine video game amusements.
It looks like a tough gig, but at least he gets a lunch break -- and seems to have earned the big boss' approval. Watch a dog at work below, courtesy of YouTube.
