Rose Parade 2013: So cold, even Uggie the dog is shivering

Temperatures at the Rose Parade in Pasadena were so chilly, even Uggie the dog appeared to be shivering.

Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier made famous in 2012's Academy Award-winning best picture, the silent film "The Artist," was trembling while aloft the Beverly Hills Pet Care Foundation float. He was photographed wearing a blue vest.

Temperatures were in the 40s in Pasadena during the parade.

The 10-year-old dog had his paw prints imprinted in June at Grauman's Chinese Theater, and has been a symbol of PETA's adoption campaign.

He has been making the rounds recently, attending the White House Correspondents' Assn. dinner.

Uggie was a 9-month-old puppy slated for the pound when he was adopted by animal trainer Omar von Muller.
