Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about our adventures on Game Day this weekend.
I don’t think it’s much of a secret to most people that there was a big sporting event in the United States this weekend. My humans could have gone to a party to watch this big game, but they decided to stay home and have a party with us dogs, and I am glad they did. They even planned ahead and made sure we had good snacks for game day viewing and I highly commend them for that.
We actually watched two games at our house, as I’m sure many pet families did. We started our afternoon off watching the Puppy Bowl and were not surprised to see Team Fluff take home the Lombarky Trophy again. There is apparently no shorter way to a human’s heart outside of food than cute puppies running around with toys. In my puppy days, I could have been MVP, I’m sure. The most important part, though, is that the puppies all get adopted and they bring a lot of attention to pet adoption for other dogs, too. You have to love a game like that. I hear that there was a Kitten Bowl this year, too. I guess they realized that we dogs were on to something and decided to try it, too.
After we got warmed up with the Puppy Bowl, we were ready for the Super Bowl.
I should explain that my humans are not big sports fans. There is something that we look forward to every year, though, and that’s the commercials during the Super Bowl. I hear that the commercials are mostly what everyone is talking about the day after the game anyway. We enjoyed a lot of them, but I certainly had my favorites.
Did you see the commercial with Squirt? Yes, we dogs have dreams, too. I also read somewhere that Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” commercial was the most popular ad of all time during the Super Bowl. It probably won’t surprise you that both of these commercials have dogs in them.
While we saw a lot of funny commercials, I felt that dogs were not represented nearly enough in this year’s advertising. I think that if they want people to watch more of the Super Bowl, they should really have more dog commercials. Let’s face it, people can’t resist us dogs and it makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy, no matter which team wins or loses. When there are dogs in commercials, everybody wins. I’m pretty sure my humans are more likely to buy things if there’s a cute dog involved and they can’t be the only ones.
