In quite possibly the saddest movie news you will read today, Uggie, who became famous as "The Dog" from 2011's "The Artist," has died. TMZ reported that the 13-year-old Jack Russell Terrier was put to sleep on Friday.
Uggie's owner and trainer, Omar von Muller, confirmed the news on Facebook Wednesday morning. "We regret to inform to all our friends, family and Uggie's fans that our beloved boy has passed away," von Muller wrote. The owner said he didn't plan to release the news of Uggie's passing, but someone leaked it to TMZ. "In short, Uggie had a cancerous tumor in the prostate and is now in a better place not feeling pain. Thank you for your support."
Uggie wasn't just any movie dog, though. He was a Cannes Award-winning movie dog who was awarded the Palm Dog for his role in "The Artist." He even wrote his own memoir and became Nintendo's first-ever spokesdog after he retired from movies.
We'll miss you Uggie, the best pup Hollywood's ever known.
