Nicole Dogged It Before Jail Too

Before in-n-out-mate Nicole Richie began her 82-minute jail stint, she made sure that all her b*tches were in check.

Cameras caught the wrong-way driver dropping off her two pooches, Foxxy Cleopatra and Honey Child, at California Animal Hospital under the protective watch of baby daddy Joel Madden. Less than an hour-and-a-half after she kissed her babies goodbye, Nicole was free to pick 'em back up again.

What a frickin' waste of money!
