Uggie certainly knows how to make an impression.

The 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier and star of last year's hit film The Artist has cemented his place – literally – in Hollywood history with a paw-print ceremony outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre today.

With the ceremony, during which the affable pooch plopped all four of his paws into wet cement, Uggie joins nearly 200 other celebrities who have left their hand- and footprints in front of the theatre.





The event precedes the release of The Artist on DVD tomorrow and was billed as a retirement party for Uggie, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Uggie's trainer, Omar von Muller, had announced the star dog's retirement earlier this year, though they continued to make appearances.

"He's done a lot of work in his life and I really don't want to put him through so much long hours anymore," von Muller told PEOPLE.

And with this send-off, we bid Uggie a heartfelt farewell. Here's looking at you, kid!
