Serially sick and shaking The Artist wonder-dog Uggie is heading to D.C. "Page Six" reports that Uggie will attend the White House Correspondents Dinner next month on an invitation from the Washington Times (well, he is very right-wing), and he'll be accompanied by his trainer, Omar von Muller. Suck it, Dash! Also, according to Times editor Ed Kelley, "Uggie hopes to meet President Obama while in Washington." Well, sure. (Uggie, this is turning into the most prolonged imminent retirement since Steven Soderbergh, just FYI.)
