Over-the-top cuteness factor

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!
