Drew Barrymore says her dogs Douglas and Oliver love 3-month-old Olive.
She tells People, “They’re so protective of her. They’re so sweet. And Douglas, the little blonde one, just comes and licks [Olive’s] head, and it’s just so goofy and silly and I always say, ‘Douglas, is this your baby?’ ”
She adds that she made sure the pets got to know the baby right away.
“We brought her stuff home to them to sniff and play with. I put her with them right away. I was holding her and protective but there are all these wonderful studies that kids that grow up with dogs have better immunities because of the dander and the pollen. And it’s a proven fact that dogs just improve the quality of your life.”
Now Douglas is like a bodyguard to Olive.
She says, “He’s literally sitting [and] looking out the window – in like a guard dog position.”
Sounds like the baby is making motherhood a cinch for the 37-year-old actress. She also adds that Olive is a “Super Baby” because she sleeps and eats so well.
