Rose on her dogs: Little freaky gargoyles...like Jim Carrey trapped in dog's bodies. They Make me laugh a lot. It's such a working-mother thing.I was obsessed with Furbys for a while, and I finally got one and it's so annoying. I wanted to die. My dog was very jealous of them, so she ate one's head. My dog looks like a Furby. That was her problem, I think." Just lately I think ever since I got dogs. I never really owned animals before, but since I've got these two weird dogs. Do you know what Boston Terriers are? They're like bug eyed, black and white, they kind of look like me, black and white with bug eyes. My dog snorts so ever since I've had her I snort when I laugh. I'm becoming my dog.I usually do it when I laugh, [she pretends to laugh and snort] and I'm like in a four star restaurant. I'm like, "Sorry. "
