Puppy Bowl XI

I'm sure I am not the only one who tuned into Animal Planet's 11th Puppy Bowl right?

Believe it or not, this year was the first year I have ever seen it!
It was THE cutest thing ever, of course!

All of the puppies shown in Puppy Bowl are from rescues and shelters?


For those of you who don't know, the Puppy Bowl aired yesterday, and resembles a Football game, except filled with cuteness and tail biting penalties instead of big sweaty men pumbling each other!
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against football, but when there is puppies involved, I am THERE!

Some cool facts about the Puppy Bowl :

  • The first ever Puppy bowl was on February 6th 2005
  • There is a veterinarian on site to ensure the pups safety
  • Representatives from American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals as well as the shelters the pups came from stand by to ensure the pups are treated well. 
This year was the first year that they decided to have actual teams.
It was Team Ruff VS Team Fluff.

I was going for team Ruff while my oldest daughter was going for team Fluff.
If you watched the puppy bowl yesterday, which team were you rooting for?
Team Ruff took it in the end!

The photo above shows a birds eye view of the puppy bowl.
It is set up in a room made to resemble a football field.
Just too cute for words.

There was even the most adorable kitty half time show, where a bunch of kittens took over the control room. AND they had a gorgeous kitty done up as "Katty Furry," rather than Katy Perry
(who performed at the Superbowl Half time show.) Had to laugh.

The above photo shows the candidates for MVP of the game. (Most Valuable Pup)
Henry took it after scoring 4 touchdowns!

SO my friends, if you haven't yet tuned in to the Puppy Bowl, I encourage you to watch next year!
It was a well spent 2 hours of my time!
In the meantime if you would like to see some clips of this years Puppy Bowl, check out Animal Planet HERE.

  1. Believe it or not, we are big SuperBowl fans here so we have to watch it! We actually loved it because it was a great game and our team won!! We all sat around in front of the fireplace and watched the game...it was snowing outside and we were nice and cozy! We have never watched the Puppy Bowl, but we have heard a lot about it...thank you for sharing all of that great info! We will head on over to Animal Planet and check out some of the videos!!

      Yea, I am not a big football fan, of course we had the game on here and there to keep an eye on the score, but it was Puppy Bowl all the way for me this year!

  8. I am pretty sure I have been watching the Puppy Bowl since the very first one in 2005. I was thinking about that yesterday when I noticed that the Ref in the game is the same guy that has been doing it for years. I'm not sure if he was there in the very beginning, but I'm sure he has been for at least a few years now. It's just so much fun to watch those puppies having a blast!

  17. We watched it and I must say Laika was quite interested in the whole game. My pick for MVP didn't win but they were all pretty good athletes. I was rooting for team Ruff as well :)
