For some, Super Bowl 2023 is the second-biggest game around on February 12. That's because Animal Planet is back again with its annual Puppy Bowl (it’s Puppy Bowl XIX, if you’ve been keeping track, or the 19th iteration if you refuse to do Roman Numerals). Basically, it’s the Super Bowl for dogs.

This year’s event features 122 puppies, benefiting some 67 shelters and rescues from 34 states. It’s all in good fun — dogs aren’t doing anything untoward, though occasionally a penalty flag is thrown for accidentally leaving it all out on the field. There’s plenty of wrestling and tugging of toys, and lots of water breaks. And you’ll also learn the stories of the pups themselves, as well as the organizations that enable their adoption.
