One of the biggest stars of the awards season is becoming an author.

Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier who stole hearts in the Oscar-winning film "The Artist," has a memoir coming.

The book is titled, "Uggie: My Story," and is slated for release in October. His tale of tails will be transcribed by biographer and presumed dog whisperer Wendy Holden.
