Can you believe the Puppy Bowl has been around for eleven years now?! After a brief introduction to the players on each team, the puppies immediately started playing and rough housing with one another.
Early in the game, Cara a cute Pomeranian claimed her territory and was a big scorer — securing her place in the running for MVP. In the middle of the first quarter a purple noodle caused quite the commotion when several puppies wanted to play — but ultimately Bubba got the toy and scored for Team Ruff, causing the game to be tied.
Thanks to Freckles from Team Fluff and Titan from Team Ruff there was plenty of scoring in the second half of the first quarter with the score being in favor of Team Ruff for the first time.
As usual viewers were able to get a (p)up close and personal look at the pups with the water bowl camera and fans at home sent in videos and pictures of their own lovable pets to the “kiss cam.”
Even the felines got in on the action, Lil Bub was on hand and wanted to see some scoring, while several other cats watched the action from above the field.
At the end of the second quarter Team Ruff took the lead thanks to Henry’s 7 point touchdown and was leading over Team Fluff with a score of 45 to 28.
