Costa Rican puppy stars in Puppy Bowl XV

February 3, 2019

By far the biggest televised competition Sunday was the Puppy Bowl, the annual Animal Planet program that imitates a football game with adorable dogs.

This year’s iteration, Puppy Bowl XV, featured Marisol, a pup from Costa Rica.

Marisol scored a key touchdown (pup-down?) for Team Fluff, much to the delight of Puppy Bowl fans everywhere.

Marisol is 18 weeks old and her ideal first date is a sunset hike, according to Animal Planet.

The game also featured sloths as referees.

Thank you for reading our important coverage of the Puppy Bowl.
