Puppy Bowl - Watch It Right Before the Super Bowl!
People are starting to get riled up for the Super Bowl - but for you dog lovers, it also means it's time for the tenth annual Puppy Bowl! This is clearly one of the cutest things you'll ever see on TV and it's on right before the Super Bowl.
Never seen the Puppy Bowl before? Well let us give you the scoop:
The most adorable puppies play football against each other just like the humans do - only it's much cuter, funnier and very uncoordinated.
Are there cheerleaders? Yes!
Hedgehogs are on the sidelines with pom-poms to cheer on their teams.
Is there a halftime show? You bet! There's a Kitty Half-Time Show - the puppies leave the field and a large scratching post is brought out with a wide variety of kittens. The show features kittens playing with lights, laser pens, balls of yarn, a scratching post and a wide variety of other colorful toys .
Sideline reporter "Meep the Bird" tweets lives updates throughout the game.
There's even a blimp driven by hamster pilots!
Puppy Bowl is filmed inside a miniature "stadium" that is 19 feet long by 10 feet wide. There is a height and weight limit for the puppies due to the size limitations of the play area. Some cameras are placed inside toys and water bowls to give a puppy's-eye view of the action. All the puppies come from shelters. You can check out this year line up at: https://animal.discovery.com/tv-shows/puppy-bowl/photos/x-starting-lineup.htm
The Puppy Bowl does have different rules than the Super Bowl in that the puppies are given a wide variety of chew-toys and bones to play with and they are free to tackle, bite and do as they wish...ok - I guess human football players do a lot of that too. Missed a play? They have loads of replays and a "cute cam" so you don't miss an adorable second!

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
