I think I may have found the ultimate cure for the beating the winter-Monday blues: Have your favorite football team head to the Super Bowl (Go Giants!) and then look at photos for the lineup for this year’s painfully adorable Puppy Bowl. Huzzah! Puppies and sports! Take that, rainy January Monday!
Just hours after it was determined that the New York Giants would be facing off against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, Animal Planet announced their lineup for Puppy Bowl VIII. Among the unbearably cute pooches competing in the wildly popular televised event (last year saw a staggering 9.2 million people tuning in for Puppy Bowl programming) are a 10-month-old Dachshund named Shiloh (“Fun Fact: Has read all the Harry Potter books”), a floppy-eared 13-week-old Terrier named Marbles (!), and a 14-week-old Miniature Aussie Mix named Tattoo who is so fluffy I’m going to die! Check out the entire lineup here. But, be warned, it’s NSFW — in that you will distract everyone in your office with a torrent of “D’awwwwwwwwww“s!
Puppy Bowl VIII begins at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 5, on Animal Planet. D’awwww.
