Bob the bulldog: Expresso’s canine celeb

Step aside, cool dudes – there’s a new top dog in town and he’s pawing his way to stardom faster than you can say “fetch the ball, boy”. 

He’s Bob, the French bulldog stealing hearts on SABC3’s Expresso breakfast show and proving his puppy weight in gold by helping to teach viewers how to take proper care of their four-legged friends.

Bob, who at five months old already has his own Facebook page, Twitter account and media following, has been charming fans of the show since he made his debut at the age of nine weeks.

YOU’s Latashia Naidoo met Bob and his adoptive dad, Expresso producer Bradley van den Berg, at the show’s studios in Sea Point, Cape Town. Read more in YOU 15 December 2011.
