For millions of Americans, the Puppy Bowl arranged by the Animal Planet has become like an appetizer menu to Super Bowl Sunday. Colorado residents have now also an additional reason to watch the Puppy Bowl. Other than just enjoying the wonderful dog antics for two hours in the show, the Colorado people can now support their very own contestant, a puppy named Aspen.
Aspen from Berthoud belongs to the Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue. The puppy will be featured in the contest called the chewable challenge.
The Puppy Bowl is in its sixteenth year now and is considered as a platform where adoptable pets from shelters across the United States and other countries are featured. The contest has become quite similar to a pop culture phenomenon in the United States.
Aspen, who is a 22-months-old Cocker Spaniel mix, will be included in Team Ruff.
Aspen’s shelter sent the puppy to the bowl, not only to be a representative of Colorado but also to represent the other dogs at the shelter who were waiting to be adopted.
This time round Animal Planet expects that 96 dogs from 61 shelters divided into two teams will be able to find their homes.
The puppies will be made to play just plain charm you and also catch kisses on the specially made pedigree kissing cam as they compete for the Chewy Lombarky Trophy.
Families who will be adopting the puppies will be given a starter kit from the online pet supply business called Chewy. The kit includes food, toys, treats, cleaning supplies, grooming supplies, and a bed.
You can expect to see goat cheerleaders, the signature kitty halftime show, and a hamster surge to power the scoreboard during the show. Throughout the broadcast, “Pup Close and Personal” segments will also be shown.
Puppy Bowl is Animal Planet’s most viewed program, and all the participating pups are usually adopted at the end of the show.
