Nintendo's first "spokesdog", Uggie from Oscar-winning movie The Artist, is chilling out after his success by playing Nintendogs + Cats on a pink 3DS.

The canine actor's career hits a new high in these photos as he pretends to understand the console's autostereoscopic display and touch screen interface. We know the dog's smart, but come on.

You can of course have your very own Uggie in Nintendogs + Cats by raising a Jack Russell terrier and raising it to be the smartest dog ever.
