Every year, I look forward to Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl and apparently, I’m not the only one. Last year’s game had 8.7 million viewers. Check out this year’s line up and watch a preview.

Be sure to tune into the game on Sunday at 2 p.m. on Animal Planet. You can get more info at AnimalPlanet.com.

Two girls and a puppy

You have probably seen the above picture floating around on Facebook recently.
 
After losing their family dog to cancer, Ryan Cordell told his two daughters they could get a new puppy if they got a million likes on Facebook.
 
So the girls posed for a picture with their brothers holding a sign that read, “Hi World, We want a puppy. Our dad said we can get one if we get 1 million Likes! So LIKE this! He doesn’t think we can do it!”
 
In less than 24 hours, the family was searching for a dog to adopt.
 
It’s a cute story, but it’s also an amazing promotion of animal adoption. The family has since adopted a puppy from the North Shore Animal League America and is now collecting donations for the rescue.
 
Their photo received well over a million likes and I can only hope that those million-plus people picked up on the fact that the Cordell family chose to adopt rather than purchase.
