Puppy Bowl XII features kitties

It almost snuck up on me, but Watson and my husband reminded me that both the Super Bowl and Puppy Bowl are on Sunday. That means I’m making snacks for my boys. My favorite snack is homemade popcorn, and the boys love it. I’m sure they would love a bunch of butter on top, but I just give them popcorn made with tender loving care.

This year’s Puppy Bowl lineup looks great! It features 49 puppies who were drafted from different animal and rescue organizations across the country. They are also teaming up with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and introducing the Puppy Bowl Hall of Fame. This is to honor the players from former Puppy Bowl’s. The plan is to promote adopting older, seasoned animals.

So far my favorite is Boris, who is a Havanese. He has an adorable, irresistible face. I love the Puppy Bowl because all the athletes are up for adoption. Last year Keno from Las Vegas was adopted immediately.

The action is riveting, and other exciting features keep the Puppy Bowl fun. The chicken cheerleaders are a hoot as they shake and strut their stuff. This year’s Kitty Half-Time features kitties romping and rumbling over San Francisco’s historic landmarks. Don’t be surprised to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Animal Planet is busy in the off season too because it features Road to the Puppy Bowl events.

By working in local communities and stressing animal adoptions, they have found homes for more than 3,000 animals. They also help cover the cost of these adoptions, a real win-win deal!

You can tune in to the Puppy Bowl XII on Sunday from 3-5 p.m.. Make your Super Bowl super by checking out the Puppy Bowl. It really is fun and enjoyable. Our little family will be front and center to see the action. Of course we will enjoy the popcorn and beverages. Go team!

WHO’S WHO

Our Who’s Who this week is David Revels, who keeps CAPS clean and healthy for our guests. David is a sweet, kind guy who loves all the guests and wants to make life a little better for everyone. You can find him cleaning kennels, walking dogs, playing with cats and working to make CAPS a positive environment. We thank David for his dedication to CAPS. All of our guests love him. A big tail wag to you!

WHO’S NEW AT THE CAPS’ ZOO?

Everything is coming up Daisies! Daisy is a lovely gray-and-white female cat who is just waiting to bring cheer into your life. She is one year old, loving, friendly and absolutely beautiful. Spring is here and Daisy is just waiting to bloom into your life. Come in and meet her; she will steal your heart away.

We have a darling puppy who is a Lab cross. He is five months old and was dumped in the desert with a torn ACL. Fortunately he found his way to CAPS. He needs tender loving care and will reward you with love and affection. Please come by and meet him.

We have five male and three female kitties ready for their new homes. Make this a Valentine’s Day to remember with a new pet to enjoy life with. Policy, however, prohibits adopting out puppies or kittens under the age of six months to a home with children under five years of age. This is to protect both the children and the animal.
