Plus: 12 seconds of extreme cuteness from a shar-pei named Wrinkles

When the big dogs come out to play on Sunday — it’s the Carolina Panthers versus Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 — some little ones also will be looking to score.

Animal Planet’sPuppy Bowl XII (Feb. 7, 3 p.m.) pits Team Ruff against Team Fluff, the latter of which was schooled by the former in Puppy Bowl XI, 87-49. Will Team Ruff assert its dominance again? Or will Team Fluff get revenge? Or should we not pretend any of that matters and just enjoy a bunch of baby canines haphazardly and accidentally carrying chew toys across a goal line?

Click on the video above to get a preview of the action. Here, a Chow Chow/labrador mix named Star shakes off her role in a Deflategate scandal and helps Team Ruff by scoring a double touchdown. You’ve seen a dog drag two toys into an endzone, but now you can watch a potential MVP score in both endzones, capped off with a sorta-celebration by the silkie chicken cheerleaders.

And because you didn’t beg, we even threw in a bonus 12-second clip of a shar-pei named Wrinkles dogging it on the field.
