Angie Harmons daughters play Rizzoli and Isles for her dogs when she’s away

I’ve been scouring the interwebs trying to find if Angie Harmon has a new movie out, or TV show, or book, something to account for People Magazine having so many recent articles on her. But I can’t find any project she’s in and would be promoting now. People Mag is just really into her, I guess. I’m not complaining, mind you! Without their latest installments we wouldn’t have her thoughts on respecting her body in menopause, how she loathes mom jeans, or this new headline: Angie’s daughters console her three rescue dogs by playing Rizzoli & Isles reruns when she’s away from home. Adorable. Here’s more from People on Angie’s pups and other rescues:

“When we have to leave the house, my daughters will turn on Rizzoli & Isles so the dogs think I’m still in the house,” Harmon, 51, tells PEOPLE of her detective drama series, which ran from 2010 to 2016 on TNT and still streams today.

“Finley does that all the time,” the mom of three adds of her 20-year-old. “My oldest would be like, ‘Well, mom, I just felt bad for them. So I just turned on Rizzoli & Isles, and they all just fell asleep in the living room’ — and the cats come downstairs, and everybody comes down the stairs and sits on the couch.”

One of Harmon’s cats is named Hazel after the star’s recent role in Buried in Barstow.

The Law & Order alum adores all her animals, including her pet squirrel, who are all rescues.

“So my big guy, he’s like a Great Dane and a Catahoula, and my middle guy is a German shepherd slash beagle. And then the little one is a Chug, and she’s like a Chihuahua body with a pug head,” Harmon says of her smallest pup, noting that she calls her “Chug Life” and that she definitely”runs the roost.”

“I mean, she’s the tiniest thing and literally just puts everybody in their place,” she adds.

Even smaller than Harmon’s “Chug Life” pup is the actress’ 3-month-old squirrel named Thomas.

“So my youngest daughter found him on the sidewalk, and there was no tree to put him on,” Harmon says of how her daughter Emery, 14, helped her become a squirrel mom.

Harmon, who also has a third daughter named Avery, 18, says she told Emery to “go find the nearest tree, put them under it,” and wait for the mother to return.

Unfortunately, the mother squirrel never returned to the area where Emery found the newborn rodent.

“So, I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll come get him,’” Harmon says. “And then I’ve had him ever since.”

When Thomas finally opened his eyes one month later, “The first thing he saw was me,” the Texas native describes of her bonding moment with the animal, whom she plans to release back into the wild “when he’s ready.”

But for now, “He’s my baby. I love him so much.”

Oh yes, small dogs are in charge all the way. The last time we had family dogs congregating, My Girl, a Chihuahua-dachshund, and her gal-pal Shih Tzu cousin totally and completely bossed around their other cousin, a Bullmastiff about ten times their collective size. And they were guests in his home! The poor guy was a lovable goof, and in return the two little bitches seized his ginormous bed and said “This size is really more appropriate for us, anyway. You can move along now.” (I really do love My Girl and don’t spend as much time on character assassination of her as it may sometime seem here.)

With regards to Angie’s other pet, please speak honestly, readers: how many of you would bring a stray squirrel into your home? If your answer is yes, well then you’re a better woman than I am. Thomas is a cutie pie, I’m not blind to that. But I’m actually a bit worried about how he’ll fare when Angie throws him back into the wilderness, like she says she’ll do. It’s gonna be The Simple Life: Squirrel Edition, no?
