Did Uggie’s Owner Pull a Fast One on Jimmy Kimmel?

Jimmy Kimmel is out to expose Uggie, the Jack Russell Terrier from The Artist, as a total fraud.

During his talk show Tuesday night, Kimmel provided video evidence that proved the dog that appeared on his show last month was different from the pooch in the film that won Best Picture at the Oscars.

Apparently this replacement dog has been making the rounds on a variety of shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Uggie’s owner might want to send the real dog to the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in April as Kimmel, the host of this year’s 98th annual dinner, plans on not letting the impostor in.

Stay tuned.
