Pig cheerleaders, a Tweeting cockatiel and lots and lots of pups: It’s Puppy Bowl VIII
Giants and Patriots aside, it’s time for the big event — the Puppy Bowl – two hours worth of puppies playing on a miniature football field, and more.
Unlike the well-paid athletes who will be battling it out in Indianapolis, all the pups in this bowl game are currently without permanent homes; all are adoptable; and all can be found listed at Petfinder.com.
In its eighth year on Animal Planet, this year’s Puppy Bowl will also feature kittens, pigs, chickens and Meep the Bird, who will be Tweeting the action from inside the stadium.
Five pigs will replace last year’s chicken cheerleaders.
Puppy Bowl referee Dan Schachner sat down with the Wall Street Journal’s Kelsey Hubbard before the event to talk about the big game, which starts today at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet.
