This year, Animal Planet is proudly marking the 8th anniversary of the Puppy Bowl with many one of kind features. Certainly, the highlight of the game is that all of the playful pooches you see playing their hearts out are recruited from shelters and rescue groups nationwide. These rough and ready pups are set to take to the field Sunday, February 5th with kickoff set for 3 p.m.
Not to be missed features of the game include old favorites, such as the puppy, kiss, and water bowl camera angles. Thanks to these camera angles, no play will be missed, and no achievement will go unnoticed!
For the first time, a squealing squad of five perky pigs will be cheering on all of the dedicated, determined dogs! Another feature of the big game is a one of a kind aerial view, piloted by happy hamsters sitting in the Ice Breakers blimp.
For some real entertainment at half time, all eyes will be on the frisky felines who will take over the stadium providing viewers with a spectacular show for all to see!
At the end of the game, the Most Valuable Puppy title will be awarded! To cast a vote for the MVP, and view a rundown of the most memorable moments of past puppy bowls, please visit animalplanet.com.
