It’s Time for Puppy Bowl 2013!

It’s that time once again! This weekend they will gather on the field and prepare to do battle for everlasting glory. All eyes will be upon them, watching, waiting, hoping. They’ll take that ball and they’ll run with it, to the 30, the 20, the 10, TOUCHDOWN! They’ll turn to the cameras and… scratch that itch behind their ear. I am, of course, talking about the Puppy Bowl! It’s an annual tradition in our household to watch the Puppy Bowl and I’m sure the same can be said for a lot of you. Yes, even those of you who really just watch it for the Kitty Halftime Show. It’s okay, you can admit it. We’re suckers for all species of cuteness too!

Introducing… the Puppy Bowl App!

While you’re preparing for the big day, don’t forget to download the awesome new Puppy Bowl Co-Viewing App, presented by Subaru. It’s available for free from the iTunes store and you can download it to your tablet or phone. The app will expand your Puppy Bowl viewing experience by interacting with what’s happening on your TV and providing additional content. LIVE during the broadcast! (The app will also work with the re-air, since you know you’ll want to watch it twice.) The Puppy Bowl Co-Viewing app can be downloaded beforehand so you can have it all ready to go when the Puppy Bowl airs this Sunday, February 3, at 3:00 pm e/p.

Just like the Super Bowl, the commercials are always something to look forward to as well. And it’s like a bajillion times better because they’re pretty much all filled with animals! Does it get any better than that? Some of our favorites are always the Subaru “Dog Tested. Dog Approved.™” commercials. They’re cute, clever and, best of all, they use actual adopted shelter dogs! To get you good and pumped for game day, here’s a sneak peak at one of their new commercials: Tailgating Those pups are ready for the big game. Are you? With the Puppy Bowl Co-Viewing App, you’ll be the talk of the dog park!

Shelter Sketches: Meet Tye

In an attempt to bring attention to the disastrous bush fires throughout Australia I looked for an animal who had been affected by the fires and was available for adoption. During my search I came across this week’s Shelter Sketch and had to stop there. As far as I know, Tye wasn’t made homeless or injured by the fires, but just take a look at his smile and you’ll see why I couldn’t pass him up!

Meet Tye

Tye is a large adult male American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He is about three years old and a total softy. He loves to play and knows some basic commands, but is very strong on leash. He needs a home where he will be walked regularly, and given proper socialization and lots of mental stimulation. Then again, that applies to pretty much every dog! Won’t you consider bringing Tye into your home?
