Who will be this year's MVP—Most Valuable Puppy, that is? For the ninth straight year, Animal Planet and Petfinder.com have teamed up for the Puppy Bowl. The televised game, featuring 63 shelter pups, will air on Animal Planet during the Super Bowl, on February 3. The event promotes animal adoption from local shelters. This year's special game treats include hedgehog cheerleaders and a kitty halftime gymnastics performance. Puppy Bowl referee DAN SCHACHNER says the rules are simple. "Drag a chew toy into the end zone. That's really it!" he told TFK Kid Reporter Storm Bookhard. Go to timeforkids.com/puppybowl to see a video.
