Get the skinny on this year’s puppy-to-watch!
Some of the key players in Animal Planet’s upcoming Puppy Bowl — the 10th annual event, by the way — stopped by Good Morning America on Jan. 27 to show off their skills. And even though anchor Lara Spencer did most of the work, seeing as puppies have no idea what football even is, that didn’t stop the pups’ appearance from being surprisingly informative.
‘Puppy Bowl’ Preview: Meet Daiquiri
Lara announced that Daiquiri, which is most definitely not an appropriate name for a dog that’s way too young to drink, is anticipated to be this year’s MCP. In case you don’t know how the Puppy Bowl works, that stands for Most Cuddlable Puppy, which is totally a thing.
Other than his prospects on the field, we know very little about Daiquiri right now, as puppies are famously secretive. However, thanks to the good people at Animal Planet, we do have these stats available:
1. Daiquiri is a Labrador Retriever/Terrier mix.
2. Daiquiri is 16 weeks old.
3. Daiquiri is pretty damn adorable.
Puppy Bowl X airs Feb. 2 at 3 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, and along with the usual cuteness, this year’s game also features penguin cheerleaders and an all-kitten half-time show. It’s going to be epic. And did I mention that all the players are up for adoption?
HollywoodLifers, will you be watching the Super Bowl this weekend, or will you opt to check out the Puppy Bowl, instead? Will you be flipping back and forth? Which puppy are you rooting for? Honestly, there are so many things worth discussing, so hit up the comments section with your thoughts!
