The bulldog blogger

RZA (pronounced Rizza), is a six-year-old English Bulldog with an appetite for lounging.

His owner Andrew, a photographer/videographer, named RZA after the American rapper and founding member of Wu-Tang Clan. Much like his namesake, RZA struggles to walk down the street without being noticed.

“He’s excellent in the apartment. Typically, English Bulldogs are really lazy; they are very much indoor dogs and don’t like to do much – which is why we got him,” Andrew said.

“RZA is a bit of people magnet; we get stopped all of the time on the street. He has friends that are his solely. They aren’t interested in hanging out with us.”

RZA has lived in Southbank for close to six years with Andrew and his other owner Latoya, and their three-year-old daughter Amaya.

With the opening of the nearby Boyd Park, RZA and his family have relished the opportunity to try out the new green spaces.

“It’s been amazing having the new park. RZA loves the grass and Amaya loves the playground,” Andrew said.

“He’s such a gentle dog. He is great with the little one and pretty easy to look after.”

As well as becoming a City Rd celebrity, RZA also features heavily on Andrew’s Melbourne food blog.
