Comedienne Susie Essman may have played a cat in Disney’s Bolt, but her heart is going to the dogs.
"Dogs, I think, are the greatest creatures in the entire world," says the Curb Your Enthusiasm star. "The only bad thing about dogs is that they have a short life span."

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Susie Essman married her boyfriend of five years, real-estate broker Jim Harder, on Saturday, The New York Times reports.
The couple tied the knot at the Friars Club in Manhattan, and were married by Tom Fontana, a writer and producer whose credits include HBO's Oz and who is also a minister of the American Fellowship Church.
"He was a person who was warm and loving and real," Essman, 53, told The Times about Harder, 51. The pair met in New York over Thanksgiving weekend 2003. Essman, who plays the abrasive Susie Greene on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, said that Harder had never seen her show.
