Uggie, best known as Jack from the Oscar-winning film "The Artist", became the first canine to have his paws cemented outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

The star dog officially retired from showbiz yesterday with a ceremony that connected him to Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Taylor, and others of Hollywood royalty.

Uggie rose to prominence after his turn in "The Artist".

He played a memorable role as Jean Dujardin's companion in the silent film.

The Artist, which comes out on Blu-Ray and DVDs today, won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Uggie's trainer, Omar Von Muller, noted how things have changed since "The Artist" was released.

"This has been a rush. This has been incredible. All the success in Uggie, everybody says that I'm a great trainer, I don't think so; he's just a great dog."

Muller also urged people to adopt, noting that his star student was adopted.

Uggie's film credits also include playing Queenie in last year's "Water for Elephants".
Fellow canine celebrities Lassie and Rin Tin Tin lent their star power to the occasion, appearing alongside the 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier.

The councilman declared yesterday "Uggie Day" in Los Angeles.

After the ceremony, Uggie signed his "pawtograph" on Blu-ray copies of "The Artist" for 50 lucky fans.
