Uggie the dog, of "The Artist" fame, is slated to receive a major Hollywood honor: next week, he'll have his paw prints cemented in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater.

Perez Hiton reports that our famous four-legged friend will join ranks with Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson in a ceremony on June 25. One can only assume that his handler will be there to write his name, although if you saw that movie, you know as well as we do that that dog can be trained to do just about anything.
