Sherri Shepherd has bonded so quickly with the new dog she adopted over the weekend that she's got a very important question to put before her boss.
"I'm going to ask Barbara [Walters] if I can bring her to work," The View cohost tells PEOPLE. "I'm going to get her when she's in a really good mood – after she interviews the President."
The 3-year-old black Lab, which Shepherd adopted from the Baker Bridge Rescue of Charleston, Tenn., arrived on Saturday and has been by the 30 Rock star's side ever since.

Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland laughed it up during a date night at the El Portal Theatre in L.A., where they attended Clorox's Last Comic Sitting event hosted by Sherri Shepherd.
According to an onlooker, the couple was "very cuddly" and held hands at the show when Tye didn't have his arm around Melissa. "They are just so in love and just so cute," says the onlooker.
The two had a sip of wine before the show began, but ultimately raced to their seats, where they laughed at the performances before leaving the grab sushi and head home to daughter Ava.

The show may very well go on for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his Dancing with the Stars partner Melissa Gilbert, who suffered a head injury following Monday night's paso doble.
The actress, 47, alarmed viewers when she was absent from Tuesday night's elimination episode, but Chmerkovskiy, 32, says she's just taking it easy at home.
"She's in pain," he told PEOPLE backstage after the show. "She's got a big headache. The doctors said she has a minor concussion, and I know that's really unpleasant."

The hottest topic on Wednesday's live episode of The View was its co-host Sherri Shepherd's shocking elimination on Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars.
Wiping away tears that started flowing long into the standing ovation from the studio audience and their shouts of "Sherri! Sherri!," Shepherd listened as View moderator Whoopi Goldberg said, "You know, we are not happy ... she was robbed."
Shepherd explained that the waterworks were "not a temper tantrum, [but] really tears of joy. I wanted to do this for so long, and to be taken off the ride so soon, it really was devastating."

Gladys Knight may be one of the top soul singers of all time, but her tango on Rock Week at Dancing with the Stars only received 20 points from the judges, landing her at the bottom of the pack Monday night.
Did her performance with partner Tristan MacManus send them both packing? Or did Gavin DeGraw and partner Karina Smirnoff – who improved this week, but have been regulars in the bottom two so far this season – get the boot? Or did a favorite who happened to have an off night end up going home instead?

Tension is running high this week on Dancing with the Stars – because of the pressure to perform routines about life-changing moments, according to contestant Sherri Shepherd.
Speaking about Jaleel White's recent outburst during a rehearsal with partner Kym Johnson, Shepherd downplayed the incident.
"These dances were emotional for everyone," Shepherd said of the performances, which they had less time to learn. "Everybody wants to do well. We all want to be here."

Jaleel White knew Dancing with the Stars would put him back in the spotlight. But he didn't know that he and pro partner Kym Johnson would be the focus of behind-the-scenes drama.
"It was completely exaggerated," White, 35, said backstage following Monday night's performances, after reports surfaced that he had erupted into a tirade against his partner on Friday.
The former Family Matters star reportedly stepped on Johnson's foot during a rehearsal, and then yelled at her when he thought she overreacted to the pain it caused.
"Jaleel definitely was out of line," a source tells PEOPLE. "It basically didn't have anything to do with Kym or her foot – he was just stressed out and ready to snap."
