For almost 50 years we have had the Super Bowl and for nearly a decade we have watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. Well in 2014 Hallmark Channel is adding the purrfect companion for these two because they announced today that they will be doing Kitten Bowl as part of their Pet Project.
You know this is the first game where it is OK for the players to be as catty as they want to be!
Kudos to Hallmark Channel for scoring a touchdown with this programming alternative for us cat lovers on Super Bowl Sunday. I have a black and cat white who says she is dressed up to be a referee.
This post is dedicated to my late dear friend Nancy Carr, who worked as a publicist at Hallmark Channel. She would’ve loved this even more than I do. She was a huge cat lover and the best friend they could’ve asked for. I am sure she will be cheering them on from The Rainbow Bridge with her cats and mine.
Hallmark Channel is going to the dogs today at 1p with Who Let the Dogs Out. You have all seen that video of Tillman the Bulldog who skateboards like Tony Hawk? Well he is getting his own weekly show and he is looking for other extraordinary pups like him. Each week he will travel the country with his owner, assistant and a host to find the pooches that have a special talent.
Today’s premiere episode is military related and we will meet Luca, who worked with the troops in Afghanistan for 8 years. She recently lost her leg when she stepped on an IUD protecting her soldiers and was forced to retire from active duty. She is now being reunited with a former soldier, who she served with her, and he is taking her in to give her the best civilian life possible.
Tillman is getting some accolades today, he is becoming the first dog to be a Honorary Marine. The Marines want to honor all of man’s best friends who risked their lives for their two-legged buddies.
Whether you are a dog owner or not, you are quickly going to fall in love with Who Let the Dogs Out every Friday at 1p. Even my cat gave it four paws up!
