Elmo, Tango Cheering on MVP (Most Valuable Pup) at Puppy Bowl XVIII!

Get excited because this year’s Puppy Bowl is going to have a load of fun and familiar faces. Elmo and his adopted pup Tango will be cheering on the MVP- most valuable pup. Each year, the Puppy Bowl is watched by millions around the nation. Sometimes football is just too boring for the kids, but if you have an extra screen available, maybe the’ll be happy to watch this. Though, they may ask for a puppy afterwards.

To kick off the game, special guests Elmo & Tango are traveling all the way from Sesame Street to gather the PEDIGREE® Starting Lineup players in the center of the field for the PUPPY BOWL XVIII coin toss to who from Team Fluff or Team Ruff will be the first to wag their tails! In addition, Elmo & Tango will be featured throughout the game as they cheer on one unforgettable pup, Wasabi, a Chihuahua/Cocker Spaniel mix from The Sato Project, from the sidelines throughout the game. As the game progresses, we will see which pup has what it takes for the one and only BISSELL Pet FoundationTM MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) award by scoring the most touchdowns.
