Local dogs in the starting line-up of Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl

Two puppies will hit the national spotlight when they compete in Animal Planet’s 14th annual Puppy Bowl. The Puppy Bowl premieres Sunday, Feb. 4 at 3 p.m.

The public is invited to cheer the puppies on at a viewing party hosted by Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack from 2 to 5 p.m. The rescue and rise to fame of pups Iris and Edwin was made by possible by a partnership between the Humane Society for Greater Nashua and Alamo Rescue Friends of San Antonio, Texas.

Iris, the camera shy pup happier on the sidelines rooting for the team, is skilled with handling both stuffed toys and rope toys. Edwin is relentless when chasing a ball and is a real first stringer on Team Ruff. He has a fiercely competitive streak that comes out on the playing field

The Puppy Bowl stars will be in attendance and there will be complimentary refreshments and snacks available and dessert items donated by the Nashua Hannaford. Donations of supplies for HSFN’s pets awaiting adoption are appreciated. A wish list can be found at www.hsfn.org.
