Super Bowl 2013 commercials: Where were the dogs??

The Super Bowl is something I look forward to every year. I like football. And I love funny commercials. Especially the ads that star animals or children. Bonus points if both are included.

So after sitting through this year’s game, blackout and all, I was left feeling a little disappointed. The game wasn’t that great and neither were the commercials.

Though there were a few ads with animals, I only noticed one that included dogs — Kia’s “Space Babies” — and they didn’t even have a starring role. Bummer.

Each year, I usually recap my favorite ads starring animals and most of the top five include dogs. This year, it’s hard to even come up with three.

Doritos has had some great spots the past couple of years, and this year was no different. I loved their Dorito-chomping goat. He definitely takes the top spot for me this year.

Also notable was Budweiser’s The Clydesdale’s “Brotherhood.” Very sweet, but funny is what gets me every time.

Next year, however, I am seriously considering saving myself the time and just watching the Puppy Bowl instead. What about you?

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
