Canine Superstar Uggie Lands Epic Role as Nintendo’s First-Ever “Spokesdog”

Remember how The Artist won all of those Golden Globes, despite no one having seen it? At least no one I know, but since I don't necessarily hang out with a ton of movie savants, that's not surprising. In any case, Uggie, the adorable dog (who made an appearance on stage to accept one of the Golden Globes the movie collected), is making even more moves, as he's now become the first official "spokesdog" of Nintendo.

Apparently February is Responsible Pet Owners Month, so Uggie is helping spread the word via titles like nintendogs + cats, of both how to virtually take care of your pet as well as interact with pups and kits in the real world. How precious. 

NoA's VP of Sales & Marketing Scott Moffitt even had a mildly amusing quote:

"Uggie didn't have to sit up and beg for his role as Nintendo's spokesdog. It's truly our pleasure to work with a star of Uggie's magnitude, especially to help animal lovers and portable gaming fans discover the fun of nintendogs + cats."

Awesome. Can't wait to see what kind of shenanigans Uggie finds himself in.
