I just need to take a minute to thank Animal Planet for expanding the Puppy Bowl franchise to make it an all day event. Right now, I’m watching them tell the dogs if they’ve made the team or been cut (adopted) before the big day. And later, there’s a “Where Are They Now” segment, showing last year’s players in their new homes.
Of course, the goal is to have all the dogs on the field adopted, but they’ve taken this to a whole new level of cuteness with the big game and all the hoopla surrounding it.
We’ve been loving on those puppies and kittens at Animal Planet’s annual Puppy Bowl for 13 years now, with the 14th annual show queued up for Super Bowl Sunday (February 4, 2018) at 3:00 pm. Since it’s been so popular, Animal Planet has expanded the concept to include senior dogs with the first ever Dog Bowl airing tonight at 8 pm. Dogs over the age of seven will compete, but they all win because they’ll be finding forever homes. The video from Baltimore’s CBS affiliate shows a few of the contenders.
I am in love with the vet shows on Animal Planet. My typical Saturday involves watching the reruns all day, then catching the original episodes at night.
I know they show some non-pet related stuff, too, like River Monsters, North Woods Law, and Treehouse Masters (which I can’t figure out how that relates to animals), but my favorites are the ones that show vets. How about you?
I posted earlier this week about the new K-9 Cops on Animal Planet, and how much I like it. My son, on the other hand, can’t live without seeing It’s Me or the Dog. That got me to wondering what shows you might like.
