Uggie Bow-Wows Out

Uggie is moving out of the spotlight

Reports from Hollywood say that Uggie, the appealing pooch from The Artist, is calling time on his movie career and hanging up his collar for good.

His trainer, Omar von Muller, has decided that the ten year old terrier should retire because he’s “getting tired.” “I don’t want to put him through long hours any more,” he’s quoted as saying to Life and Style Magazine.

Uggie’s farewell appearance is likely to be at the Oscars ceremony next month, although he may be seen at lower key events before then.

It seems, however, that performing runs in the dog’s family.  Younger brother Dash was his stand-in on The Artist and is now being groomed for stardom.
