Kevin Costner Introduces The New Addition To His Family

Costner’s “baby” is a white Labrador puppy who he affectionately calls Bob. On Tuesday, he sat down for an interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He is currently on tour doing press for his upcoming movie Horizon: An American Saga. Although people were interested to hear about Horizon, it seemed like the audience couldn’t get enough information about Bob.

After a few minutes of conversation, Jimmy Fallon persuaded Kevin Costner to talk more about his new pup. He initially introduced Bob to the world on Instagram earlier this year.

“I got a buddy, his name’s Bob,” the Yellowstone actor said. The audience in the studio laughed at the dog’s name and Fallon questioned, “You named the dog Bob?”

Kevin Costner clarified that he calls the dog “Bob” when he’s upset with him. Otherwise, he is called “Bobby.” The audience was practically overrun with the cuteness overload as the late-night TV show host pulled out more photos of Bob.

A second photo of the pup showed him sleeping on the door of an open dishwasher. “He kind of waits for me to do the dishes. That’s a pretty good dog, right?” Costner shared with the audience, “I do all the work, he does everything else.” The story behind the photo was even better. Apparently, Kevin Costner had no clue that the dog was sleeping in the door of the appliance.

“I was doing the dishes, and like anything, I thought, ‘Where is he?'” he said. Assuming that he was “chewing on something” he shouldn’t have been he went searching for the dog. He ran straight into the dishwasher, where he saw the pup fast asleep.
