It’s the first day of Autumn – which means more leaves for me to play in! Yippee!

With the Academy Awards on, we think these guys give the nominees a run for their money!
1. Uggie, a scene-stealing Jack Russell terrier from 2011 winning film “The Artist” triggered a social media campaign to award the dog. He walked empty-pawed from the Oscars and later the British Academy of Film and Television Arts also rejected him because ”his unique motivation as an actor was sausages…” In 2012 however, he became the first dog in history to have his paws imprinted in Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Yay!
2. If Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris could be a dog, he’d be a Basenji “Because they don’t bark – they laugh”. They’ve even been know to, er, Yodel…
3. Best Supporting Actress Nominee, Patricia Arquette ‘earned less money than her dog walker’ for her appearance in Boyhood.
4. Best Actor Nominee Bradley Cooper owns a rescue dog called Charlotte. His chow/retriever mix, was found wandering the streets of Compton, LA. “She has no bottom teeth,” says Cooper. ”She’s a little toughie”.
5. Last years Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres is part owner in a natural pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets.
