Football fans found out last night which two NFL teams will vie for the title of Super Bowl Champ (in case you care, it’s the NY Giants and the New England Patriots; I only know because I just googled it). But for animal lovers, even more fun news made headlines today: PUPPY BOWL!
For the eighth year in a row, Animal Planet will air their Puppy Bowl at 3 PM on February 5th. Adorable pups from shelters across the country will don uniforms of the two opposing Super Bowl teams and romp about on the field for some adorable fun.
This year, Meep the Bird will tweet all the action from inside the stadium and a piggy pep squad that will “ham” it up on the sidelines. (Last year’s event had a chicken pep squad.)
It’s lots of fun and brings attention to pups in animal shelters looking for homes. You can see the starting line up of cuteness and then watch Puppy Bowl VIII on the Animal Planet website.
