Puppy Bowl XII: A puppy live stream, a pre-game show, start time, and more

Puppy Bowl -

For everyone out there who loves the Puppy Bowl, we come bearing news: It’s really not too far away now!

The 2016 edition of the Animal Planet signature special is going to begin in America at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time, and that’s something worthy of checking out provided that you love puppies every bit as much as we do. The game is ridiculous, but there’s so much cuteness how can you stay away? We’ve got a few other resources that you may want to know about before tuning in this year.

1. A pre-game show – Just in case you don’t get enough fun out of watching the puppies themselves, we now come bearing the following gift: A show that you can watch beforehand online! Just head over to the link here to watch it. Sure, it’s completely absurd, but we figure that is very much the point by now and why so many people choose to check this out versus the other forms of entertainment that are out there.

2. A puppy live stream – There is no official stream of the Puppy Bowl itself; any site claiming to have one is more than likely sending you to some dark corner of the internet with pop-up ads. The stream we do have for you below, courtesy of Animal Planet and the Washington Animal Rescue League, is a clip featuring some of your favorite furry friends enjoying some time in what is a locker-room designed play area. Note that these aren’t the same dogs you see in the game; many of them have already been adopted, as the game has already been filmed for the special.
