For my participation in this month's "Books, Movies and TV Shows" theme I humbly present my first contribution. The 2011 film The Artist the artist received worldwide acclaim for its revival of silent film, but in my opinion the real star of the show is the character of Jack, the spunky terrier who steals the show and ultimately saves the day. Jack is played by canine performer Uggie, whose prior rolls included parts in commercials and 2011's Water For Elephants alongside Reese Witherspoon.

Uggie didn't have the greatest start to life. He was sent to the pound at least twice for being too wild and hyperactive. But when he was adopted by trainer and owner Omar von Muller to be trained as an acting dog, Uggie found not only a career but a loving forever home. Sadly, Uggie passed away in 2015 at the age of 13. But his legacy as a talented canine performer lives on.

Currently this Uggie has the traits Hyper, Destructive and Genius. Some pictures online show Uggie with a lot more grey around his muzzle; he aged quite a bit in the last few years of his life after The Artist and looks pretty grizzled, but my version is based on his appearance in 2011. He's pretty fresh-faced in the film!

He also uses some CC:
Required CC
Though not required, I use and recommend Christy's Eyes by corapntr.
Uggie is also pictured with accessory sunglasses made by the lovely and talented Spladoum. Sadly these are not available for download at this time.
