The Fashion Star judge and her husband, Joel Madden, brought home an 18-month-old German shepherd last week, but the responsibility is all Daddy's, she tells Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I actually told Joel I don't want to pick up after anything ever again," Richie says. "I've got my kids, so I'm going to let you do that. It's his dog, but I like to, you know, snuggle. I like to hug him and kiss him."

If looks are any indication – and when you look this good, they surely are – Nicole Richie is in the best shape she's been in years.
Spotted this week in her hotel pool in Miami's South Beach, the 30-year-old beauty – and mother of two and Fashion Star mentor – was the picture of health.
Back in 2006, as friends and family expressed their worry, PEOPLE was reporting on the 5'2 Richie's shrinking weight, and how she sought help for her issues, also blaming her being thin on "nerves."

Well, that was interesting.
NBC's much-anticipated Fashion Star premiered Tuesday night, and it's definitely the spectacle we were promised.
The show started with a racy dance number that led into the first runway presentation, featuring looks from two contestants. It continued this way, showcasing three signature pieces from each designer, leaving the decision of who would stay in the competition – and who would go home – to buyers from H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's.
The main focus of Tuesday's premiere was the runway show. Mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos had limited roles. There weren't many vignettes on the designers' back stories, and workroom drama was kept to a minimum.
Not that episode wasn't without any tension: Menswear designer Nicholas Bowes caused a bit of controversy when he dismissed Simpson and Richie's critiques of his trite motorcycle jackets and disjointed styling, saying he didn't value their opinions because they're women who design for other women.

Fashion Star premieres Tuesday on NBC, and though it's drawing obvious comparisons to Project Runway, Nicole Richie insists it's different.
"This is something that's never been done before," she tells PEOPLE in the video above. "We're talking about the epitome of immediate fashion." Case in point: the clothes seen on the show's runway will be available immediately online and in-store at H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's. The stores' buyers are the judges while Richie, Jessica Simpson and designer John Varvatos all serve as mentors to the 14 contestants.
So what's it like for Varvatos – who's designed for stars like Gerard Butler and Chace Crawford – to work with lovely ladies like Richie, Simpson and host Elle Macpherson? Richie answers that one with grin. "I kept having to slap the smile off his face every time Elle would walk on the stage," she jokes.
