However, I didn't think the pure wonderfulness of Cosmo the dog in the film Beginners could be beaten! The Jack Russell terrier played Arthur, dog friend of central character Hal, played stupendously might I add by Christopher Plummer. Uggie versus Cosmo, the jury is still out for me but those lads are setting the bar high for fellow canine actors!
Lastly, lest I forget, I've never been able to get my head around why people buy dogs when there's so many crying out for homes in rescue shelters, so I was really happy when I learnt that both Cosmo and Uggie were rescued by their families!
