Super Bowl and Puppy Bowl 2018 – What’s It All About
It’s that time of year again! Annually two NFL teams vie for the Super Bowl trophy and end of season win. Just like the NFL, two other teams battle it out on a little different playing field. It’s what’s called the Puppy Bowl and is sponsored by Animal Planet.
Two teams, Team Ruff and Team Fluff, give playful antics on a mock football field. These dogs are shelter or rescue dogs that need help finding them (and others like them) new homes. Great awareness is needed as many rescue and shelter pets are still dying daily. Puppy Bowl 14 provides a fun and entertaining way to bring awareness to the needs of these and other dogs.
This year’s Super Bowl has the New England Patriots playing the Philadelphia Eagles. Dogs and their hoomans are kicked back watching the big game. While the Puppy Bowl features 90 dogs rescued from various situations. Namely, several of the dogs playing in the Puppy Bowl came from Puerto Rico areas affected by Hurricane Maria, Texas areas affected by Hurricane Harvey and many other areas around the U.S.
Each year dog lovers unite with their pet pals and tune into the Super Bowl and the Puppy Bowl. Often times sharing their afternoon of field frolicking from a big comfy couch or chair. Loads of Sunday fun is had every year with the Super Bowl and Puppy Bowl.
Then the real fun begins!
Owners share their photos to social media and we all get to see the fun other dogs and hoomans are having. Some pictures are downright hysterical! Some dogs take their football pretty seriously.
While there can only be one Super Bowl winner, all the dogs in the Puppy Bowl end up being winners. Just for fun, they do keep score to see who comes out ahead, Team Ruff or Team Fluff? Large syndication of the event plus viewers sharing to social media aid in rehoming these dogs as pets. Literally saving lives and having a fun way to be a part of it all.
This year the Philadelphia Eagles took home the coveted Super Bowl trophy. Puppy Bowl 14 has Team Fluff come out ahead of Team Ruff to capture the Puppy Bowl win. Wherever you and your 4 legged friend enjoyed the bowl games from we hope you enjoyed the excitement of the games.
It’s pet lovers that help make the difference to pets abandoned, abused or otherwise left homeless. It’s up to each of us to do our part and not just once a year. Do your part, sharing is caring.
