Puppy Bowl XV on Animal Planet

The Big Game is this Sunday. No, not Super Bowl LIII. The other Big Game. The one with more penalties and controversies than any other game that's ever been played by a group of puppies (and the occasional kitten) on TV.

Yep. It's Puppy Bowl XV. (That's 15, for those of you who don't speak Greek.) And you'll be able to watch at on Animal Planet at 3 p.m. Eastern (that's noon on the west coast) on Feb. 3. It's a two-hour even that puts Team Ruff up against Team Fluff for possession of the Chewy.com "Lombarky" trophy at GEICO Stadium. (What, you didn't think this thing was sponsored at least as much as the NFL?

Also of note is that all of the puppies and kittens who participate in the Puppy Bowl have been adopted. That's a very good thing.

And coming back for the second year is Puppy Bowl Presents: The Dog Bowl, which you can catch at 8 p.m. Eastern on Feb. 2. You don't want to miss this.

Returning for the second year to Animal Planet is Puppy Bowl Presents: The Dog Bowl, the paw-tastic football competition for adult and senior dogs living in rescues and shelters, hosted by award-winning animal advocate Jill Rappaport. These fuzzballs are oftentimes overlooked by younger pups, but here at The Dog Bowl audiences can see these 63 dapper dogs and the amazing spirit they can bring to any loving family.

So, then, the only question is how can you watch the Puppy Bowl. That answer is simple — it's on Animal Planet.
