The Puppy Bowl is Coming!

A lot of so-called “normal” Americans really love football. Me? I could give a crap about football. And The Hubs is a blue-blooded Canadian so football isn’t in his repertoire either. We do, however, love puppies! So every year, instead of following the trend and screaming at the tv, we squee and awww at the tiny puppies running around the mock stadium in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl!

Puppies participate in the taping of Animal Planet's "Puppy Bowl IX" program on Nov. 11, 2012, in New York. The mock football game will air on Super Bowl Sunday. The puppies used in the show are from shelters and rescue organizations across the country. Illustrates PUPPYBOWL (category l), by Maura Judkis (c) 2013, The Washington Post.

I thought about throwing a Puppy Bowl party but I don’t think any of my friends would show up, so it’s up to The Hubs and I to make some healthy snacks to go with our buffalo wings. Hey, buffalo wings are fine in moderation, people! In the spirit of the event, I’ve come up with a few ideas for snackage:


This 5-Minute Black Bean Dip from Cookin Canuck, served in a (clean) dog bowl


Cheese and lunchmeat cut into dog bone shapes


Healthy chocolate truffle “kibble” for dessert

Bingley, of course, will be eating his normal kibble. 🙂

What are your plans for Superbowl Sunday? Will you be enjoying the Big Game, or watching the Puppy Bowl?

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Die hard football fan here! I’m planning on making a beef roast, shredding it, making a horseradish sauce, toasting some buns and making sammies along with chips and pickles! Love your ideas for snacks for The Puppy Bowl!!
