Puppy Bowl X is coming on “big game” Sunday (Feb 2) on Animal Planet!
If you have not heard of or watched one of the previous 9 Puppy Bowls it features adorable puppies, 66 of them this year, all playing together with toys on a fake puppy sized football field. Getting a toy to the end zones results in a touch down, rough play results in penalties. It is not so much about the “game” but rather about watching adorable puppies! The puppies all come from local rescues to help raise awareness for these pups and all rescued animals in need of homes.
Viewers get to vote for the MVP – Most Valuable Puppy – during the live event. There is also a half time show featuring kittens and keyboard cat, and cheerleaders.
Puppy Bowl X has penguin cheerleaders for the first time!

The best part is that this plays before the big game so you can watch both! It also replays after so you can watch puppies instead of football if that is your thing.
Here are just a few of the adorable puppies in this year’s starting line up:
5. Ginger – Female Old English Sheepdog Mix
6. Jillian – Female Shih Tzu and Pekingese Mix
7. Lily – Female Bassett Hound
9. Opie – Male Schnauzer and Terrier Mix
10. Roxy – Female Shih Tzu and Chihuahua Mix
11. Suri – Female Siberian Husky
All of these pictures come from Animal Planet’s website, where you can see all the rest of the starting line up along with pictures of other years of the Puppy Bowl.
I encourage you to check out more pictures!
