Uggie, star of the Oscar-winning film "The Artist," became the first dog to cement his paws outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Uggie was celebrated during a ceremony Monday with a cake in the shape of a fire hydrant and golden bow-tie collar. He arrived in a fire truck. The event also marked Uggie's retirement from show business. (Photo by Joe Kohen/Invision/AP)
