Super Bowl? Forget that – I’m watching the Puppy Bowl!

I have a confession to make.  And it may not come as a surprise but I don’t really like sports.  But as Super Bowl Sunday approaches, those of us who do not like sports but want to get in on the action have a wonderful alternative – the Puppy Bowl.

Animal Planet started the Puppy Bowl 7 years ago as just a filler item.  But it has blossomed into a full blown event!  And the wonderful thing is that they are using shelter puppies in order to help raise awareness to the rich resource of you local shelter.  The goal is to get animals adopted.  And I think this is a great idea!  They even do little “starting line-up” introductions.

I am having a lot of problems trying to figure out how to get the line-up (or any video for that matter) for this years bowl on the blog – so click here to see the current line-up.  But once the game starts, it is just dissolves into a few balls of puppy fluff as they play and chase one another.  How adorable is this?

And to those of you who do not know, I am an “animal” lover.  Which means I adore all kinds of animals from cats and dogs to birds and even reptiles.  But no worries, I understand there are people out there who are more cat lovers and I respect that.  So do the folks over at animal planet, so be sure you don’t miss the wonderfully cute Kitty Half Time Show.

This is the only video I was capable of getting embedded but it really doesn’t give you the full idea.  But I will keep trying, so feel free to check back and see if I had any success.

Be sure not to miss Puppy Bowl VII Sunday February 6, 2011 from 3 – 5 PM, EST on Animal Planet.
