Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl Expert Shares the History of All That Cuteness (Exclusive Video)

”People seem to like it, and how could you not?“ Dave Salmoni tells TheWrap

Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl expert Dave Salmoni stopped by TheWrap offices to discuss the 13-year tradition of the cuter, fluffier version of the Super Bowl.

“It’s an alternative viewing to the Super Bowl, not everybody’s a football fan, sometimes the game’s kinda boring,” Salmoni said. “So if you want, if you like puppies, you’re tuning into Animal Planet.”

Salmoni explained a few other things too, but honestly, who can concentrate on facts and information when a mountain of puppies are squirming about?

Puppies from 34 different shelters will compete in Puppy Bowl XIII, airing during the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5 from 3-5 p.m. ET
