Review by Ted Terrier Author of The Journal of Ted Terrier

Following on from my review of Champ’s biodography, me and Emma decided to do another one. I actually feel a little bit jealous cos Emma wanted to read Uggie The Artist’s book so much and the reason I am jealous is that he is also a JRT like me and a film-star not like me and Emma has a thing for film-stars, especially if they sing too which thankfully Uggie doesn’t, and it makes me worry that maybe she will love him more than me. Now the artist – though not the same kind of artist, Sue Mynall – of my books; The Journal of Ted Terrier, The Colour Journal of Ted terrier and soon The Second Journal of Ted Terrier – says I should have been the doggie star of the film The Artist cos I am a superstar myself. I love Sue!! However, Emma says I couldn’t have been cos I’m too naughty and not well-trained enough. Ggggggrrrr to you Emma! How’s that for loyalty of a human sister – or how isn’t it given that it isn’t. But you see when we read Uggie’s book we found out that he was naughty too before he was adopted by acting coach Omar von Muller, and then he was even naughty afterwards now and then. But I do have to admit that he is certainly better trained than me but that is more my humans fault than mine. I am very good at my job without being trained. I have natural talent! So does Uggie! And he is very dedicated too. Maybe that’s also cos he is a JRT. Emma says neither of us are modest. That’s a JRT thing too Or just a dog thing – some humans do all this silly covering up of their feelings and talents whereas we dogs are just honest about it. I love humans so much and so does Uggie. He met and starred with Reese Witherspoon on the set of Water for Elephants and fell totally in love with her.

Lets be honest.., yes, Jean Dujardin was sensational in "The Artist," and his smile was irresistible and I could watch him all day do nothing, let alone, not hear him talk. BUT, that movie and Monsieur Dujardin would be nothing without Uggie. Uggie stole every scene he was in and gave the movie a heart beat that could be loudly heard, even though the movie was silent. He should have been nominated for best supporting actor. Period. Uggie became a movie star because he's so magical in film...because Uggie has a " je ne sais quoi" that only comes every few decades. And, if you do that in dog years, well...it's a long time that we've have been waiting for this special four legged guy. From this book I learned the reason why Uggie exudes stardom and charisma and an old soul: Uggie has lived a life more meaningful and vast than most humans. He's a man's man's dog and a ladies man dog. Women cannot resist him, including Reese, who can have anyone. I know Richard Burton and Hemmingway would have hung out with Uggie, who would have drank them under the table, because he has grace. Although Uggie is a prankster and can be difficult like Sean Penn at times, he refrained from trashing Christopher Plummer for winning the Oscar, even though Plummer was less than a generous actor toward Uggie, taking a swipe at him. SO, thankfully, his essence and life has been captured in this funny and charming and sweet book. Yeah..he's a bad boy. But, that's cool. Especially if you know how to potty outside. Fracture beginnings were bestowed on Uggie, and, yet, like the greats, Henry Ford, Einstein, Churchill, Steve Jobs, Uggie turned his failures into success. You thought Annie had a hard knock life? Well, Uggie is the true American story, rising out of the kennels to fame.Read more ›

Funny and tender story of this 'baby' who stole the hearts of thousands skating, "Hallmark Christmas May Your Wishes Come True" and other commercials ... as well as in the Big Screen: "Water For Elephants" and the latest Academy Awards [Oscars] Winner: "The Artist". Jean Dujardin could have never had a better co-star!!
