The American Pickers notable petted the head of one furry animal while the other canine licked her face.
She gushed: “I love being able to spend time with my grand doggers!”
The reality star mentioned her daughter Memphis, 21, has also been “taking good care” of her.
She closed: “The pups are doing their best, too.”

Danielle recently opened up about her mental health struggles in an emotional post to her Patreon followers.
The mom-of-two confessed to dealing with bouts of depression.
She wrote: “While I’m incredibly thankful to have family accessible to me and have such wonderful children who will drop everything to help take care of me, the depression during this time has been very real.”
Danielle continued: “To be honest, the depression has been very difficult for me to deal with.
“I am working through it in my way, but in part, it is preventing me from writing much because I don’t feel very many positive things right now, even though I realize everything that I am thankful for and the blessings I have. “
Danielle admitted: “There are simply times when our brains do not want to understand because our brains simply get depressed.
“I can tell my brain over and over again how thankful I am, and somehow, at times, the depression wins out.”
She concluded: “Very raw, struggling, but by no means suicidal or in fear of self-harm, just hurting physically and emotionally, so I am giving myself space to feel my deep feelings, grief, sorrow, anger, etc.
“I am working on being very intentional with my actions and words.”
THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
Earlier this month, the History Channel star shared photos of herself about two weeks after her surgery.
She also opened up about suffering complications and discovered she could not be “using any sort of massagers” until 16 weeks after the surgery.
While sitting on the couch in her living room, Danielle explained she has “been wearing compression socks” since the surgery.
Back in October, Danielle revealed she had been dealing with some “unforeseen health issues,” and announced she was expecting surgery.
