“Do we know about the Pawscars?” Admin says. “Sponsored by the American Humane Association, which among other things is concerned with the welfare of showbiz animals?”

“Now we do,” says Spence. “And the big winner? Yes – Uggie, from the The Artist. Did you like that dance at the end? And the way they depicted L.A. in the twenties? And the crazy anything-is-possible zeitgeist of the times?”

“Some of it.”

“Uggie’s retiring,” Spence says.

“Who’s Uggie?” says Admin.

“We’ve been through this – the Jack Russell star of The Artist and some other movies.”

“So he’s going out on top, huh?” says Admin. “Unlike so many other movie stars I could name.”

“Go on. Name some.”

“That would be malicious gossip.”

“So therefore?”

Admin is silent. No surprise there – Bernie handles the so therefores.

Welcome Sadie.


Uggie at the Golden Globes

“Uggie, the dog from The Artist – which is supposed to be good – stole the show last night at the Golden Globes,” Spence says.

“If you say so,” says Admin. “I wasn’t watching. As for the movie, never heard of it.”

“It’s a silent movie,” Spence says. “Meaning that on the set, Uggie’s trainer could give vocal commands instead of hand signals.”

“To the actors?” says Admin. He hasn’t had his coffee yet. Humans have a big mood thing going with coffee.

Welcome Rocco, Bridget (on Thanksgiving), Sparky Ajax Miller (aka Sam), Mini.
