Editorial Reviews

Review

"A rollicking romp of a read" (Dogster.com)

"Demonstrates the importance of a dog’s presence in our lives, on an off screen. As he writes (or barks), quoting an unknown author, 'Dogs are miracles with paws.'" (The Hollywood Reporter)

"Perhaps the most famous pet memoir since presidential pooch Millie told her tale of life in the White House in 1992, Uggie's story, filled with plenty of name-dropping, details his rise from puppy-hood to movie stardom." (The LA Times)

"My Story gives plenty of doggie dish" (The Tucson Citizen)

"Uggie--My Story is a wonderful read filled with humor and heartfelt moments told by one of the industry's icons. If you love Uggie (and seriously, folks, who doesn't?), you have to read this book. The Uggster's personality comes through on every page and reaffirms that, even though he walks on four legs, he's one of the best talents there is in Tinsel Town. My Take: A definite must read." (Caine Gardner Greencastle Banner-Graphic)

"Heavy on the laughs." (People)

Uggie promises to bring his fans all the way back to his humble beginnings. (Parade)

I definitely recommend the book to anyone who, like me, is an Uggie fan or just loves dogs as I do.

Format: Hardcover
Uggie's biography, and it is a true biography, not just a stunt book, is an inspiring tale (tail?) about a shelter dog who was rescued and with the right love and patience, became not only a thriving and happy family member, but a star in Hollywood as well. He tells about his early days when he was an undisciplined pup and how Omar Muller found him, adopted him, and gave him the love he needed to become a great, loving dog.

If you loved THE ARTIST, and I sure did, than you'll love Uggie's cheeky behind-the-scene stories of his work in commercials, shows and movies. His affection for his co-star Reese Witherspoon, who he made WATER FOR ELEPHANTS with, is a fun love story all on its own! And the affection that Uggie has for Jean Dujardin and everyone associated with THE ARTIST is a joy. His chapters on the journey of that movie from indie to sensation is compelling reading for any movie fan.

I can also tell you I've worked with many animals in my days as a creative director at an ad agency, on all kinds of pet products for Heinz and Quaker Oats (I worked with Morris the Cat!) so I know animal talent when I see it. And I know how they work together with their trainers. And I can see it all that Omar does with Uggie that he's tremendously loving, giving, kind, and patient with him. Uggie and Omar is the real love story at the core of the biography. And it will move you to laughter and tears.

UGGIE: MY STORY is one of the most delightful books I've read, and one of the best Hollywood autobiographies too. (I am now a screenwriter too and I've read many, many Hollywood bio's and autobiographies due to my passion for the industry and truly, this book is one of the best!) This is a moving and compelling story. It's cleverly written with lots of cheeky humor through out.

I've been early awaiting the release of Uggie's book, and it's every bit as good as I hoped it would be!! A roughly chronological look into the life of Uggie, his many 'siblings' are briefly mentioned throughout the book from Uggie's candid point of view. The book describes so many of Uggie's behind-the-scenes views on everything he'd done while he was learning his behaviors and moving up the ladder to eventual stardom. A must read for everyone who enjoys reading autobiographies of celebrities!

This is a amazing story of a truly amazing dog who has won the hearts of many the world over. Count me in as one of those hearts.

This book oppens a window into the life and soul of a little dog who became the star he was meant to be.

Humor, and some sadness too. It is all here. And the love between Uggie and his dad and trainer is the thread that holds the story together.

Anyone who loves movies, anyone who has ever loved an animal, read this book. It will melt your heart. It did mine.

Format: Hardcover
Uggie: My Story is a thoroughly enjoyable, happy little book that deserves a spot on every dog-lover's bookshelf. It's not a gimmick; it's a true-life tale of a dog and his human and how both are now enjoying the rewards of their hard work and dedication, both to each other and to their craft.

Uggie's insistence throughout the book that he's not just a canine performing tricks on demand, but an actual emoting, feeling, acting artist will ring true for anyone who has ever shared their life with a dog. People who live with terriers will recognize many of Uggie's "sins", and have a chuckle or two. As far as "cat-gate" goes - Uggie, it was self-defense!

Uggie's voice is intelligent and fun, but avoids being too precious. It's like listening to a friend chat. It's told from his perspective and not the humans around him. Intertwined with the lighthearted story is the serious message about unwanted animals. Dogs do not arrive in your home immediately being good houseguests, and some require a lot of patience. Anyone wanting a dog "just like Uggie" should read and re-read the early chapters of his life, because in many ways he was the typical terrier.

With the holidays coming up, this would be a perfect gift for anyone who likes dogs, or who enjoys reading a Hollywood success story. As it says in the book, he's a star who just happens to be a dog.

Couldn't put it down. My husband hadn't read a book in several years, but he started "Uggie" and couldn't put it down, either. We both really enjoyed it.

Cleverly told from Uggie's viewpoint with human-like emotions and observations, which made me remember my Jack Russell who could have passed for Uggie's brother! (portfolio on blog 24/7 in France)
