Every year in January, we gear up for the most intense football game that you'll see all year long. Yes, my friends, it's the culmination of the two best teams who have battled through blood sweat, and tears to reach the big game. Of course, I'm talking about the Puppy Bowl.

This Year Animal Planet Presents; Puppy Bowl XX and Michigan's lone representative comes from Muskegon. This year, Dolly Barkon, a 6-month-old beagle mix from the Big Lake Humane Society will be the only puppy from Michigan to represent the state, as she will be in the starting lineup for Team Fluff. Big Lake expressed their excitement in the announcement:

Not only is this our shelter's very first time in the Puppy Bowl, but Dolly is the only puppy representing ALL of Michigan rescue pets this year! We will be having a Puppy Bowl Watch Pawty and Fundraiser at the The Dirty Dog Bar and Grille with TAIL-gating starting at noon. Come enjoy tacos, bloody marys, games, prizes, raffles and meet adoptable pets!

About The Dirty Dog Bar and Grille Watch Party

We will be celebrating this exciting day at 'The Dirty Dog'. $5 to enter, 12 and under are free! Tail-gating (see what we did there?) begins at noon! $10 Bloody Mary and Taco Bars Available. There will be game, prizes, raffles, adoptable pets and of course, the cutest game of the season kicking off at 2pm!

Team Fluff's Chances of Winning Puppy Bowl XX

In Puppy Bowl XIX, Team Fluff won with a score of 87-83. This brought Team Fluff's all-time Puppy Bowl record to 5-4 since the teams were introduced in Puppy Bowl XI. A win from Team Fluff this year would mark the first-ever 3-Peat from any of the teams in the Puppy Bowl.
Currently, Vegas has the spread at 4.5 (allegedly).

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
