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.
