If football isn't your thing, you don't have to spend February 3 in front of the TV necessarily watching The Big Game...you can watch the puppy filled version instead!
The football themed Puppy Bowl will air on Animal Planet at 12PM and feature Teams Ruff and Fluff competing for The Lombarki Trophy and will be officiated by the ruffaree. This year, two pups from Virginia have made the starting lineup and will be hoping to bring their teams a victory!
Local pup Pirate is an English-Springer Spaniel Mix hails from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, VA and will compete on Team Ruff with Hank, a Labradoodle, from Troy VA. They will be going up against Ace, a Chihuahua-Cocker Spaniel mix from Virginia Beach and Scooter, who is the same breed also hailing from Virginia Beach on Team Fluff.
