She may have been a nervous wreck after baby Olive arrived this fall, but the Drew Barrymore could have rested easy because her dogs had everything under control.
"They're so protective of her. They're so sweet," she tells PEOPE of her pups, Douglas and shepherd mix Oliver. "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?' "
The first-time mom, 37, and her husband Will Kopelman were careful when it came to introducing their furbabies to the real baby.

Drew Barrymore left daughter Olive at home for some quality (courtside) time with her hubby, Will Kopelman, Friday in Los Angeles.
The new parents watched as the Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers, 105-95, during the game at the Staples Center.
But the hometeam's loss didn't seem to dampen Barrymore's good cheer, as the actress smiled broadly throughout the game.

She practically stole E.T. out from under the space alien when she was 6, and now the 37-year-old mother of week-old Olive Barrymore Koppelman, Drew Barrymore, can be seen as she was back in her early filmmaking days.
Speaking about her director, Steven Spielberg, in a behind-the-scenes clip from the about-to-be-released (on Oct. 9) Blu-Ray and DVD edition of the 1982 box-office smash, the young Barrymore says: "He's a nice director, that's for sure, and he needs a lot of sleep, because he has to work late at night."
Costar Henry Thomas, then 10, also isn't shy when talking about Drew. He says that when she introduced the unplugged E.T. robot to her mother Jaid, Drew said, "He doesn't want to talk to you right now" – prompting Thomas to note that Drew is "quite imaginative."
