    My mom found this at a book sale a few years ago and passed it on to me when she was through with it I picked it up this morning after I did my garden chores, and skimmed it.Skimmed it because it is written in first dog person style and tries way too hard to be cute I could not stomach too much of that, but I did enjoy reading the training techniques used to make Uggie a canine film star And the pictures were nice Not a keeper, though.

    I absolutely adored this book, which was surprising to me as I have not seen The Artist and had no idea who Uggie was It was told from Uggie s perspective and it was humorous there were plenty of parts where I just had to laugh out loud I was also happy that they got plugs in for their rescue group work, which is always a plus This was a fast read and the pictures are adorable.I felt like I really got to know Uggie s unique personality and the information about how the film was made was fascinating I mean, who knew that to get a dog to lick another dog s butt in a movie, they smear baby food over the dog s butt I also remember Uggie s commercial where he pushes cookies out for Santa and then falls asleep and Santa leaves him a bone as a present I didn t realize it was Uggie that made that commercial until I read the book.It was nice to read a book about a dog where the dog is still alive The ending paragraph was great, albeit bittersweet My only hope is that long after my paws no longer trod this earth, I will still be remembered as a little artist with a big heart p 225 Awwwww..

    Biography Dogography Autodogography with translator Whatever you want to call it, it s a tale of a Jack Russell named Uggie who went from nearly a pound puppy straight into Omar von Muller s arms With steady training, Omar took a high energy canine and thru discipline, care and treats, focused Uggie into a TV and film star Although he was in several films and many commercials, his break out role was in The Artist.Uggie willing admits his adoration of Reese Witherspoon, his love of skateboarding, waterskiiing and of course, sausages The hard work that he, his human family and the other dogs and one cat do as actors as well as supporting rescue groups in North and South America.He also admits his faults the so called Cat Gate, Goat Gate and Zebra Gate and his occasional lapses into pure instinct especially with squirrels and those p grams he commemorates various locations The sad part is that even as Uggie was becoming a beloved international screen star, his age was catching up with him as well as some medical problems and sheer age But that didn t seem to slow this bundle of energy down as he joined into the award season with his castmates The book ends with Omar letting his aging star slow down This book was published in 2012 with numerous pictures of this adorable actor A quick and enjoyable read

    I hadn t wanted to see The Artist until someone told me there was a cute doggie featured prominently in it, and then I was astounded by how the clever antics of a Jack Russel terrier pulled me into a charming and moving story about Hollywood s Golden Age I really love dogs, especially small dogs I was worried this book would be a little too pandering, the kind of cutesy phoned in work that plays well to your grandma but makes your English teacher reach for the suicide hotline Good news Your grandma will love it, but the author uses cute dog stories to flesh out a variety of great observations about the history of animal actors and the life and training of a modern working dog I literally laughed at some of the anecdotes and especially when one caption read, Behind those puppy dog eyes lurked a killer AND cried no, Uggie is not dead, but reading about how he s aging summons unpleasant thoughts, and some of the moving words the humans in Uggie s life have about him are heart swelling at this book The last book I d read was the macabre Night Film, and this joyful scamper of a book was a perfect palate cleanser.

    Uggie My Story by Wendy Holden225 pages Uggie is a terrier that is famous for being in movies such as Water for Elephants and The Artist neither of which I ve seen as of yet and also many commercials and ads He goes on to write this memoir with the help of Wendy Holden It was cute, it really was I would like to think that dogs think as written in the book, but alas they don t So I found myself annoyed that this dog thought in such a humanistic manner of course how interesting would the book have been if was truly written in the thoughts of a dog So all is forgiven It goes through his life from puppyhood to when he is 10ish, his adoption, his training, his interaction within movies and the such Quite a successful pup who started out as a rescue dog So it s a cute and quick read but it goes without saying that it s not to be taken seriously Just a fun read from the perspective of a dog sort of.

    Well being a life long lover of JRTs, this book resonated with me Now sharing our lives with the 4th JRT, I so relate to cat gate, goat gate and the personality of these ruff and tumble dogs, small in stature and big of heart I miss everyone of our JRTs, they have such personality, but I have a special place in my heart for one I am sure this is how Omar feels Although he loves all his animals, Uggie was special Great book for dog lovers

    Uggie My Story by Uggie and Wendy Holden Gallery Books, 231 pages, 2012, 14.99 Another You can t tell a book by its cover book is Uggie A strikingly adorably classy cover shot of a Jack Russell Terrier JRT or Jack or even Russell sporting a 60,000 18 carat gold bone charm with his name inscribed and a black bow tie collar will have you looking at this book twice at your favorite neighborhood independent bookstore I looked twice and finally bought it but found the book took too long to read.Written from the point of view of a dog, which I normally simply eat up, Uggie simply took too long to read Who is Uggie you may be asking yourself, as did I He lived with Colombian born Omar, a balanced trainer, and an entourage of dogs Uggie is the dog in the YouTube Christmas short of a JRT in his backyard setting out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for Santa before looking into the sky for the man, beseeching him for a gift bone, before turning around and going into his dog house for a good night s sleep And, lo and behold, Santa does come and deliver a huge bone wrapped with a red ribbon Heartwarming, this short is so cute I have watched it time and time again, even sending it to friends which I hardly do since I assume their inbox is filled to the brim like mine.Uggie starred as the dog in the black and white silent The Artist, winner of 5 Oscars and numerous other awards worldwide including Cannes, where Uggie won the coveted Palm Dog award Uggie is also the recipient of the American Humane Association s AHA s Pawscar and Dog News Daily s Golden Collar Uggie s pawprints are even immortalized in cement in front of Grauman s Chinese Theater Why did Uggie take too long to read is another question you may be asking yourself the answer is that it is too contrived I was exhausted reading all the repartees that just weren t all that funny Too many slightly humorous incidents were written with too much craft and cleverness so much so that it showed, and took away from any smidgeons of style left This reviewer certainly didn t feel like she lived the book Long sentences and big words do not an enticing book make.However, if you love the now classic Christmas short or saw The Artist or have a JRT or remember all the old movie greats like Pickford, Rinty or Lassie , I might recommend Uggie, if only for the photos here and there throughout Another saving grace is the short chapter starting on page 191 about Uggie raising money for shelters and PETA However the best part may or may not be Uggie s pining for a certain blonde movie star he worked with in Water for Elephants the pining lasted throughout the book as did my unfulfilled hope that it would get better.
