Even though Uggie retired from his film career after starring in Best Picture Winner The Artist he was still able to ride his fame right into the position of Nintendo's spokesdog!
He will be appearing in new ads for the Nintendo 3DS.
A Nintendo rep said:
"Uggie didn't have to sit up and beg for his role. It's truly our pleasure to work with a star of Uggie's magnitude."
Sadly, Uggie has been fighting a mysterious neurological disorder and this is what had led to his retirement from films.
His trainer said:
"It is a shame this has happened when he is getting the biggest success of his career, but we feel the best thing to do is to retire him after the Oscars."
Awww, we hope he's okay.
And we're glad he's still getting work cause we wanna see more of his cute face!

Oh no! Don't be embarrassed, Uggie!
Contrary to most reports, (even from us) Uggie the wonder dog from The Artist will not be performing in a sketch with Billy Crystal at the Oscars.
A spokesperson for The Weinstein Company, distributors of The Artist said:
"Uggie has not been asked to participate or appear at the Oscars."
So now it looks like Uggie won't even be walking the red carpet!!
We're so upset.
We were soooo looking forward to seeing his cute little face strut that red carpet.
We can only hope there will be a surprise Uggie performance or maybe someone will sneak him into the Oscars in a large handbag.
