The Artist’s dog Uggie set to retire

It’s been a rough week for fans of Uggie, the insanely talented Jack Russell Terrier who steals every scene of Best Picture nominee The Artist. Not only was he snubbed in this week’s Oscar nominations announcement, but his trainer Omar von Muller has revealed the dog actor will soon retire.

Muller told Life & Style, “Uggie is 10 years old and has done a lot of work; he wants to relax at home”.

There is a silver lining on this dark, oppresive cloud however: Uggie has a little brother named Dash who is hoping to break into the movie biz. Here’s hoping he turns out to be more like an Elizabeth Olsen and less like a Kevin Dillon in the younger sibling stakes.

Discuss: Goodnight, sweet prince.
