Puppy Bowl Picks 2012
For all my canine readers:
My furry friends, in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, I’ll tell you what this pooch extravaganza is all about: cute puppies play with toys on a mini football field. They “score” when they drag a toy across the end zone. The game is refereed by a human, and this year the producers invited Meep The Bird who will “tweet” live about the event from the sidelines. They also hired a “piggy pep squad” who will cheer on the pups (or rather squeal), and some kittens who will put on a half-time show (boo!). Hopefully the kittens will not give us any Janet Jackson type antics because that’s gross!
Anyway, no fewer than 59 shelter puppies play the bowl. Because it was filmed back in October, almost all of them have already been adopted. But tell your human friends not to forget that Pet Finder is a sponsor of the Bowl, and there are always lots of amazing puppies on there who need homes!
Well readers, I know you’re all wondering who Leo’s pick is for 2012 Puppy Bowl MVP. I’m going to go with Tattoo, a 14-week-old border collie mix (looks like poodle to me, what’s up my brother from another mother) who hails from my home state of Pennsylvania! Border collies are tough, fast, and smart --- so I’m betting he’ll give Eli Manning a run for his money. (Yes readers, my family is from New England so if I had to make a bet on a human football team I’d go with Tom Brady and the Pats all the way.)
And my prize for looks (I have a thing for white dogs) goes to Penelope, the Llhasa mix from Fresno. Her stats say she is a Tom Cruise fan – Penelope, if you’re out there, I’m much younger than that guy, I can still move all the muscles on my face, and I’m not a scientologist, so hit me up on Facebook if you ever come to LA.
See you Sunday!
