Uggie the dog to publish a memoir


(Steve Granitz/

He may be retired, but that won’t keep him out of showbiz. Uggie, the wonder dog from The Artist, is publishing a memoir, People reports, which chronicles his rise to fame.

The “bark-all,” titled Uggie: My Story, will hit shelves on Oct. 16, with the Jack Russell terrier himself heading on tour that same week. That’s right, readers. You can meet Uggie in person! (Ladies, don’t get too excited, he’s got a girlfriend named Lily.) The book includes stories on his struggle with an eating disorder, “the Binge-Gate episode that led [him] to rehab,” and that time he “French”-ed Reese Witherspoon.

It’s not all fetch and games, however. Uggie has a request for us all: “I may be the first dog to win an Oscar and write a best-seller but my most important work is with animal rescue. Please adopt – and if you must buy, buy my book!”

Check out a trailer for the book below:
