Three San Diego players are heading to the big game. Not the Super Bowl — we’re talking about Puppy Bowl XIX. The pupular sporting event sends 100+ adoptable dogs to Puppy Bowl Stadium to compete for the “Lombarky Trophy.” 🐶

Carlos and Crocket come from Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, and — as a historic Puppy Bowl first — the brothers are the first siblings to compete in the game together. The Dachshund-blends are inseparable, and both join Team Fluff to take on Team Ruff.

Also on Team Fluff is Erin, representing San Diego Humane Society (SDHS). Thanks to the organization, the terrier mix found her forever home — but SDHS still has 500+ pets in need of adoption.

The 3-hour game will air on Animal Planet and stream on Discovery+ on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 11 a.m., with a preshow at 10 a.m. McGregor’s Bar & Grill will host a watch party from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to support the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
