Uggie, the delightful dog who stole hearts in the movie “The Artist” has died.
The 13-year-old Jack Russell terrier suffered from cancer of the prostate.
According to a statement from owner Omar von Muller:
We regret to inform to all our friends, family and Uggie’s fans that our beloved boy has passed away. We were not planning on posting anything until we healed a little more but unfortunately somebody leaked it to TMZ and they will be announcing it. In short, Uggie had a cancerous tumor in the prostate and is now in a better place not feeling pain. Thank you for your support, I will not be reading any comments for a while as it is too painful at the moment.
