Most of us have finished our fantasy football season and now that it’s over the final thing to look forward to is the Puppy Bowl 2012! I know some of you might be interested in a little thing called the Super Bowl, but over here at PuppyInTraining.com we cherish the opportunity to see Puppy Bowl 2012!
This is Animal Planet’s eighth puppy bowl and seeing that they’re in their eighth season it must be a successful TV show…DUH!? Anyhow, I always flip over to the Puppy Bowl and it will be no different in 2012. As exciting as the Superbowl can be and with many wonderful commercial my eyes are still drawn to adorable puppies running around on a fake football field.
So what do we have in store for Puppy Bowl 2012 aka Puppy Bowl VIII. Here’s a little information from Animal Planet on this years event.
Puppy Bowl 2012
What: Puppy Bowl 2012
When: Sunday, February 5th, 2012 at 3pm E/P
Where: Animal Planet – You’ll have to figure that one out with your local cable or satellite provider
What’s new this year: Meep the Bird who will tweet all the action from inside the stadium and piggy pep squad that will “ham” it up on the sidelines and squeal with delight for their favorite pups.
One awesome thing to note about the Puppy Bowl 2012 is that all the pups participating in the event have been selected from rescues and shelters across the United States with the help of Petfinder.com…AWESOME!!!
Here’s a sample of one of the pups in the starting lineup this Sunday:

So what do you have in store for Super Bowl Sunday? Is it going to be another boring blow out as the New York Giants take on the New England Patriots? Or is it going to be scintillating end to end action as adorable puppies leave it all out on the field in Puppy Bowl 2012?
