I'm not a football fan, so I watched the Puppy Bowl on Sunday on Animal Planet. Did you see it? All the animals in it were rescues from shelters and were up for adoption. It was hilarious and sooo cute. The game featured 63 adorable shelter pups from around the country — as well as Meep the bird who Tweeted game updates, hamster sports reporters, hedgehog cheerleaders, the traditional kitten half time show and one lucky human ref, who doled out penalties for “excessive cuteness.”

It's on every year, so if you missed it this time around, look for it next Super Bowl Sunday.

I saw the preview game that Good Morning America put on... although that was just with five puppies who all seemed to be totally uninterested in the whole thing.

I watch part of it every year....and it always makes me laugh.  Those dogs are just too cute!!

They actually have reruns for a few days after the original broadcast; and I'm sure you can watch some parts on the Animal Planet website.  To be honest, sitting for hours watching puppies playing gets a bit boring....but switching back and forth from other shows was fun.
