Puppy Bowl 2013 to have hedgehog cheerleaders

Over-the-top cuteness factor

By Glamour Magazine Jan 31, 2013 6:01PM

As your official purveyor of puppies here at Glamour (it's in my job description), I thought I had seen it all when it comes to omg-I-can't-handle-it cuteness—cute puppy pics, cute puppy videos, cute kitties, even cute goats—but Animal Planet has gone and announced today something truly amazing: For the first time ever, hedgehogs will be cheerleaders at the Puppy Bowl IX.

I know. I know.

Bing: Superbowl 2013

Ever since my childhood obsession with Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, hedgehogs have been at the top of my aww-inducing list. Glad to see the people behind Puppy Bowl have caught on as well.

And, even better, here are some adorable pictures of the show to get you excited. Don’t worry, there will still be a kitty halftime show.

Who’s excited? Be sure to tune in on Sunday, Feb. 3 from 3-5 p.m. ET/PT. I know I will!

    For many, summer means getting outside and spending quality time with four-legged friends. Sometimes that's a game of fetch in the backyard, but sometimes it's fun in the sun (and sand) at the beach. Luckily, there are a number of beaches in the United States that let you bring your pooch — as long as you follow the rules, of course. Here are eight beaches that you can visit with your dog.

    5 somewhat worrisome dog breeds

    I love all pets. I wouldn’t be a veterinarian if I didn’t, and I celebrate the human-animal bond every day. I do look forward, though, to the day when these five breeds aren’t as popular. The reasons vary, but in many cases the problems are health-related, and overbreeding by puppy mills and other less-than-ideal operations has a lot to do with that. What would help these breeds is for there to be a lot less of them. A couple of them need many more adopters and far less breeding, and all would benefit from people who are well-prepared for the challenges of owning a dog, and who make sure to look to rescue, shelters and reputable breeders for their pets. As always, whatever pet you choose, we veterinarians are here to help you make healthy choices for life.
