A dog of a game: "Puppy Bowl" returns to Animal Planet to celebrate a very special anniversary in a championship battle for cuteness and barking rights on Super Bowl Sunday.

The event starts at 3 p.m. Feb. 2 and repeats all day and night with new content every hour.

And this year, all six airings of "Puppy Bowl X" will surprise viewers at the end of the game as fans vote in real time for which puppy will take home the coveted title of MVP (Most Valuable Puppy).

With 12.4 million viewers last season, Animal Planet has upped the ante with all new features and guest stars to make this the biggest game ever.

On game day, 66 rambunctious pups will be itching to score and show off their signature moves and chews in the end zone and will duke it out for their chance at glory.

New features include penguin cheerleaders, a "Kitty Half-Time Show" and special guests including Keyboard Cat.
