“They’re never mad at me. They’re always happy to see me,” she told PEOPLEPets.com Tuesday about her favorite part of spending time with dogs Lola and Shakey.
Speaking from the Scream 4 premiere in Hollywood, Bell also shared some sad news: her pup Sadie, who had been rescued following Hurricane Katrina, passed away last year.
“[It happened] in a very peaceful way,” she said, “But we still have two Corgi mutts that are alive and kicking.”
And if Bell and Shepherd are looking to start a family in the future, they can count on their pets to provide some good practice.
“[They] get into everything,” she said, “and are very, very happy little mutts.”
