Forty-nine rambunctious puppies took centre stage at Puppy Bowl XII Sunday afternoon, charming TV audiences in the often foreseen “ruff” and tumble free-for-all.
Two pint-sized units, #TeamFluff and #TeamRuff, billed onto Animal Planet’s miniature football field at 3 p. m. EST ready to play ball with a bonafide umpire on hand( with batch of doggie turd crates) to ensure it will be a good, clean match.
As if watching wobbly-legged puppies scramble over another isn’t heartwarming enough, the action-packed event’s focus is on approval awareness.
