New Honours for Uggie

Clever dog Uggie, the star of The Artist has been honoured by having his paws imprinted in the cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. He is the first dog to receive this accolade. The occasion marked Uggie's retirement from the world of film making; the ten year old Jack Russell suffers from a neurological disorder that makes acting difficult for him. He hopes to continue appearing at charity events.

Uggie met another dog at the event - one of the many who have played Lassie over the years. Lassie advised Uggie on the fickle nature of fame.
