An Australian In The Super (Puppy) Bowl!

Like… well, like everyone else on the planet outside of the grand ol’ USA… I don’t care much about the American Football thing.

Which, as a graduate of Notre Dame, might get some of the USC Trojans out there not giving much of a damn either.

From – Puppy Bowl scores big as alternative TV:

The Puppy Bowl is a two-hour display of puppies frolicking, scampering and even napping. They run up and down the miniature Animal Planet Stadium, which is made up to look like a massive football venue, complete with gridiron and a referee. The pups carry toys into the end zones for “puppy touchdowns.”

But I do love me some Australian ex-pat talent turning up in a game. Even if he’s more furry than Fighting Irish:

Here he is – awww. According to Time Magazine, he’s a miniature Australian Shepherd dog:

Miniature Australian shepherd dogs are easily trained and crave the approval of their peers, so Tattoo will likely look to shine on the field. But these pups have a tendency to try to take control of the situation, so Tattoo could encounter some fierce competition from teammates.”

Which thrilled me to bits, until I discovered something.

He’s not actually Australian.

“In 1968 Doris Cordova, a horse woman in Norco, California, began a breeding program specifically to produce very small breed founded with Australian Shepherds.”

He probably doesn’t even have the right accent.

I’m devastated. I haven’t been this disillusioned since I learned that the Footrot Flats Dog series was actually set in New Zealand.

Go Hunter the Boxer!!
