Canine ‘Arist’ Star Uggie Dies

The Jack Russell terrier who starred in The Artist has died at age 13. Uggie was put down in Los Angeles Friday, after a battle with prostate illness. Uggie won the Palm Dog Award at Cannes and became Nintendo’s first spokesdog. “I will forever hold him dearly in my heart and never forget his infinite love for chicken and hot dogs,” his trainer said.
