Puppy Bowl IX: Meet the Starting Lineup ZOMG Adorable Baby Dogs!!! (PHOTOS)

Yes, this Sunday is the Super Bowl (go 'Niners!), and along with it will come all the typical Super Bowl-y things you've come to expect from "the Big Game": nachos, beer, ridiculously overhyped commercials that aren't nearly as funny as they should be, and perhaps most importantly, depending on your tolerance for sports, Animal Planet's annual Puppy Bowl. I could go on and on about what to look forward to this year—in addition to the usual half-time kittens, Puppy Bowl IX will feature hedgehog cheerleaders—but let's be honest you've already stopped reading this intro because there are pictures of puppies to look at in the photo gallery below.

Puppy Bowl IX Starting Lineup Puppy Photos


Puppy Bowl IX airs Sunday, February 3 at 3pm Pacific/6pm Eastern on Animal Planet. In the meantime, I highly encourage you to spend the rest of this week devoting your procrastinating-at-work time to the locker room live cam.


Which adorable four-legged footballer will you be betting on this Sunday?

This is great! I love Puppy Bowl, and the halftime cat show should replace Beyonce.

I wanted to give them all 10s!! I gave one ten and the rest 8.5-9.5. They are all adorable in their own way. I gave the 10 to the husky/retriever mix towards the end but there were tons I wanted and the rest were adorable also:)

This is such an awesome program. And it is enhanced greatly by the Kitten Half Time Show and the water dish cam. I tune into the Super Bowl during commercial breaks of the Puppy Bowl. ; )
