With nearly every bizarre reality show star getting a book deal lately, it's no surprise that celebrated canine Uggie, a star of last year's Oscar winner, "The Artist," has published a memoir, "Uggie: My Story," by Wendy Holden. The 60-year-old (in human terms) Jack Russell terrier will be making an appearance  Friday at a paw print book signing at Barnes & Noble in Santa Monica. 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.

Grumpy Cat, the Internet feline celebrity known for her disdainful expression, has a movie deal. Broken Road Productions, the company behind the Kevin James vehicle "Paul Blart Mall Cop" and the Adam Sandler movie "Jack and Jill," has optioned the rights to make a film based on Grumpy Cat's persona. Grumpy Cat will speak in the film, a la the 2004 live action Garfield movie. A mixed breed owned by Arizona resident Tabatha Bundesen, Grumpy Cat's real name is Tardar Sauce (yes, that's how it's spelled)

Backstage at the Academy Awards was a place for unscripted moments of jitters, jubilation -- and doggy treats. "We're so old and we're so happening!" Meryl Streep shouted, throwing her arms around her longtime makeup artist J. Roy Helland when the two Oscar winners converged in the scrum outside the press room. Behind Streep and Helland clutching their statuettes, Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier from"The Artist,"was collecting rewards for his performance as well -- some treats delivered by trainer Omar Von Muller.

Of course I watched the National Dog Show, but not for any special rooting interest -- all of mine are what we in these parts like to call “multicultural canines.” As it turns out, I did have an interest in the winner, after the fact. The Best in Show dog was a wire fox terrier, the same breed that won last year, and co-owned by the same woman who owns last year's winner, Malibu's Torie Steele. I interviewed her about that spunky little breed for my Patt Morrison Asks column earlier this year.

Though Jean Dujardin received the lead actor Oscar for this year's Academy Award-winning best picture, "The Artist," it was the silent film's scene-stealing Jack Russell terrier, Uggie, who won the hearts of moviegoers around the world. "Nobody told him he's a dog," said Wendy Holden, who collaborated with the 10-year-old pooch on his breezy new autobiography, "Uggie - My Story," which is being published by Simon & Schuster. "He's just a star," Holden said over the phone from the publisher's headquarters in New York City.

A Pekingese with a pear-shaped body - apparently the sought-after Peke physique - and gray mane worthy of a Shetland pony won the coveted Best in Show title on Tuesday at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Oscars of the canine world. Just a day before, Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier that was the breakout star of the movie "The Artist," fetched the prize for best film dog at the Golden Collars Awards presentation and is rumored to be appearing at the Oscars show. He was the toast of the Golden Globes stage last month.

"I think there should be an Oscar for canine performances, because the dog from 'Beginners' definitely deserves an award," says "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig. "We've got to get this category off the ground. Before comedies ever get recognized, dogs will be getting their own Oscar. " Ask and ye shall receive, Mr. Feig.

Michel Hazanavicius' "The Artist" was named best picture at the 84th Academy Awards on Sunday. It is the first essentially silent film to win best picture since "Wings" won at the first Oscar ceremony in 1929. Additionally, "The Artist" is the first black-and-white movie to win best picture since"Schindler's List"in 1994. "The Artist" is a look at the early days of Hollywood starring Jean Dujardin as silent film star George Valentin and Berenice Bejo as the ordinary girl who becomes a silent film sensation.

Movies were in their infancy when British director Cecil Hepworth put his family's pet, a collie named Blair, in the 1905 thriller "Rescued by Rover. " Not only is Blair credited with being the first canine film star, but "Rescued by Rover" proved so popular that the film had to be reshot twice because the negatives wore out after so many prints were made. And so began a great love affair between movie audiences and dogs. Since Blair's screen debut, fans have fallen for the faith, devotion and sheer beauty of such four-legged superstars as Rin Tin Tin and the dogs who played Lassie Toto, Asta and Benji.
