Let's get ready to Fumble!
Forget the Patriots and Giants. LA's own chihuahua-terrier mix, Fumble, will be representing our city in the 2012 Puppy Bowl.
Fumble, who is training to be a therapy dog, hails from the spcaLA -- the only "West Coast animal welfare organization in the bowl," reports LAist.
Since 1877, the non-profit organization has been helping to prevent animal cruelty and to find homes for animals in need.
Animal Planet's "Puppy Bowl VIII" promises to be a cute break from the drama at Indianapolis. Almost 60 puppies are getting ready for the big event, where they are sure to duke it out for BISSELL's Most Valuable Puppy award.
Watch the fur-balls in action on February 5th at 3pm EST on Animal Planet.
