Wow Bow wow It's been a wild ride--wilder even than learning to water-ski or skateboard. I'm so famous now that "The New York Times "plugged my autobiography. "Uggie will bark all in a memoir," it announced. Well, I've certainly had a lot to bark about lately.
Even before "The Artist "stunned us all by hitting the big time and winning five Oscars, inside I knew (as did my wonderful acting coach Omar) that I was an artist.

Not just the stories of how I got into showbiz or why I fell nose over paws in love with my divine Miss W (that's Reese Witherspoon to the rest of you), but also the dirty doggie truth about Cat-Gate. And, well, a few more youthful misdemeanors . . .such as Zebra-Gate and Cockatoo-Gate and the truly shameful Binge-Gate.

I hope you'll gobble up every word, just like I wolf down sausages.
