Summary
Dear Reader: 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. <U+0027>(3z<U+0027>(BUggie will bark all in a memoir, <U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B 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. I may have been merely a pound-bound hound when I joined Omar?s troupe, and certain species-ist quarters have contended that I mindlessly do tricks for treats, but it?s not true. I was milking a crowd as a young street performer when my canine companions and I were doing gigs for biscuit money. Yes, I?ve always been a bit of an attention-seeker, but aren?t all great actors? Expect some real treats. Perhaps not quite as tasty as pizza, but still lip-smackingly good. 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?m fond of a good romp, and this candid canine tell-all zips along with revealing tales of celebrity encounters and how I cope with fame. Of course there?s some sad stuff too, including the health problems that forced me into early retirement. I?ve given my all in this honest-to-dog Hollywood memoir, because that?s what I always do. I hope you?ll gobble up every word, just like I wolf down sausages. Love and licks, Uggie
