On the 30th of October 2012 Uggie attended his book launch at the London Kensington Waterstone bookstore.
‘My Story’ is a must read book, autobiography of ‘The Artist’ Oscar winning film canine star Uggie which went from originally abandoned and later adopted dog to spoiled celebrity Hollywood Icon.
Uggie, recently retired from movies work, is the first dog in history that had his own paws put in cement at the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, planting him next to the handprints of Hollywood’s royalty.
Uggie – adopted by animal trainer Omar von Muller, which is also Uggie’s manager -wrote his book with the human help of, English celebrity biographer, Wendy Holden.
The book, published by HarperCollins, has been sold to America, France, England (where it can be found in Waterstones and WH Smiths bookshops) and, in 2013, will be published also in Italian.
Since Uggie was adopted and became a star, he wants to let people know they should
adopt a dog rather than buying one. Even if the dog will not became a big star on the
screen, he will still be a big star in the house, within the family. If you need to buy, buy a book, Uggie says!
