Puppy Bowl IX: Animal Planet Unveils ‘Starting Lineup’


We all know you love it. The ninth annual Puppy Bowl is set to air three hours before Super Bowl XLVII so all football fans and dog lovers can come together to enjoy the strangely adorable madness.

Today, Animal Planet unveiled the full 35 dog lineup for Puppy Bowl IX. You can check out all of the furry friends involved by CLICKING HERE.

When exactly can you catch the Puppy Bowl? People Magazine has more info:

Thirty-five doe-eyed doggies are primed to strut their adorable assets on Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. ET/PT – and each is available for adoption. (Read: These cuties could cuddle next to you on the couch after the show is over.)

In a Puppy Bowl first, a lineup of hedgehogs will cheer on these pigskin-loving pups from the sidelines, and annual favorites like the water bowl cam, kiss cam and a stadium-hovering blimp piloted by hamsters are all returning. Also hitting the field for his sophomore season is The Ref, a.k.a. Dan Schachner, who is charged with keeping all these players in line.

You know you are going to want to tune in and, honestly, I can’t say that I blame you — except those degenerate gamblers who place wagers on the event.

    This was my first Puppy Bowl and I loved it! I’m the only one of my four roommates who wanted to watch it so I’m glad that we had a DISH Hopper put in last month when I started working for DISH. I love that it’s a Whole-Home HD DVR so we don’t have to have a bulky receiver at each of our HDTVs, but we can still control our TVs independently. They were busy with the pregame shows for the Super Bowl, and I was still able to enjoy this incredibly cute and furry time!
