We expect big things from this pooch!
Uggie, the canine star from The Artist, has just notched one heck of an award!
The Humane Society of the United States chose this barking movie star to be its spokesdog for the Pets Of Valor award - a huuuuge honor!!!
And don't think it has escaped the attention of Uggie and his trainer!
Here's what the trainer said:
“Uggie’s honored to have been chosen by The Humane Society of the United States to be spokesdog for The Pets of Valor Award, although he did hesitate at first when he heard that cats were to be included, but now he likes the idea of having an excuse to bark for them, instead of at them."
The Humane Society also had something to say about the pooch's win.
Here's what the director said:
“It’s always gratifying when a star of Uggie’s magnitude takes time out of his busy schedule to give back. As spokesdog for The Humane Society of the United States’ Pets of Valor Award, Uggie proves he’s a hero both on and off screen by advocating for the adoption of his fellow companion animals."
Congratulations, Uggie! You are one special doggy!
