Oscars - Is The Show Going To The Dogs? Muppets?

We all love that endearing dog from "The Artist"...d
...did you know he was a rescue?

Uggie is a star! he even got his own seat at the Oscar ceremonies and he was loaned not one but two gorgeous custom made, bone-shaped pendants in 18k gold (one complete with black tie and second more casual leather version) by the exclusive 150 yr old Swiss Jewelry House of Chopard!

Following the award show the Oscar version will be auctioned off to benefit the Amanda Foundation, a Los Angeles–based animal rescue group.

According to JCK, the leading source of information in the Jewelry Industry...

“I was completely charmed by Uggie’s role in The Artist,” said Chopard co-president/artistic director Caroline Scheufele in a statement. “Knowing that Uggie is a rescue dog, it inspired me to create a unique piece to benefit an important cause.” Scheufele, who, incidentally, owns seven dogs, designed both collars herself.
