Sharon Osbourne was forced to keep her collection of dogs away from her TV show yesterday (02OCT03), after the four-legged creatures left a stinky trail around the studio.

The wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been enjoying soaring success with her recently-debuted chat programme THE SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW.

And while she's worked hard at making the place homely by including furniture items from her home, the presence of her crafty canines has done little to win over her colleagues at American TV network Warner BROS.

Sharon says of her dogs, "They've been so badly behaved that we've been getting little complaints from the studio about their behaviour. And I think the last straw was last night on leaving, they c***ped, and people as they were leaving the studio were treading it all through the hallway.

"I think that was the last straw so I thought maybe if they don't come in today, people that work here will forget about it and then they can come back tomorrow."
