NASHVILLE, TN — Building on the success of the Super Bowl Sunday cult favorite Puppy Bowl, Animal Planet is adding an event for older dogs this year — appropriately called the Dog Bowl — and a Nashville canine is in the mix.
Older shelter dogs are often passed over for adoption in favor of their younger kennel mates. In an effort to bring attention to more experienced dogs, Animal Planet is inaugurating the Dog Bowl, premiering Saturday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m.
Bucky, who was a resident at Metro Animal Care and Control’s shelter but has since been adopted, was selected as a member of one of the teams.
Bucky will be the honored guest, along with Tennessee Titans cornerback Logan Ryan and his wife Ashley, at MACC’s Dog Bowl Tailgating PAWty from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday. Adoption fees are waived during the event.
