If you haven’t come across on social media an unconventional “duet” between a stylish, artist-like Shih Tzu puppy and an extremely talented ex-The Voice Kids, it’s time to meet the cutest singing duo in the Federal District (DF). Bob and Lele Allves went viral after the 16-year-old released a profile video of her on TikTok showing the puppy “invading” her rehearsal and “stealing the scene”.
“I was at home on a normal day, rehearsing songs that I was going to sing in a performance. Bob was in the living room and I was in the bedroom. Suddenly, while singing, I started to hear him howling and barking in time with the music, and it really sounded like he was ‘humming’ too. I was surprised by that because I had never seen anything like it”, said the student.
Since then, according to the young woman, the puppy started to react whenever he hears her singing. “One day I decided to record a video to post on TikTok and he just stole the show and started singing along with me”, said the girl, laughing. “I came face to face with that! I posted the images for entertainment and the guys liked it a lot. So, I started recording more videos with him”, he added.
Check out one of the duo’s videos:
According to the young woman, the first video with the puppy reached 3.8 million views. Another, however, according to her, reached 11.8 million views. “Surreal, huh? When I realized that people were enjoying the videos with him, I started recording more and he loves a camera too,” said the teenager.
Although many people loved the “duet”, there are those who speculated that Bob’s reaction was due to the tone of Leticia’s voice, which was supposedly “hurting the dog’s ear”. But the singer guarantees that, according to a professional, the puppy is fine. “[O veterinário] said that if he got hurt, he would react aggressively, which is not the case. When I sing, he wants to come close and stay where I am. I don’t force anything. I think singing is also his passion,” said the girl.
To metropolises, Lele Alves reported that she met Bob in 2019, through her stepfather, her original tutor. When the family got together, and the puppy, who is 6 years old, went to live in her house, he quickly became the “baby boy”, alongside Marrie, the singer’s dog.
