Canine star of Oscar-winning film The Artist does publicity round for book, including lunch at famous Brasserie Lipp

It was Uggie's first time in Paris and he had places to go, people to see.

Thus after a book "signing" for the television cameras, a barking interview with a couple of French newspapers, and a quick photo call on the Champs Elysées with the Arc de Triomphe as a backdrop, Uggie hopped into a taxi.

The celebrated Jack Russell, widely considered the real star of the Oscar-winning black-and-white silent film The Artist – move over Jean Dujardin – had a full day of engagements to promote his memoirs, Uggie: My Story.

Or so his people led us to believe. In fact, Uggie was off for his first Gallic gastronomic experience and like a true star was giving the press and cameras the runaround.

Where else was a VIP pooch to dine »
