Pixel Blue Eyes - Puppy Bowl Special Report and Carolina Panthers Fan Forever

Pixel Blue Eyes is a Carolina Panthers Fan Forever, Keep Pounding!
Well, Super Bowl 50 is over, and so is my beloved Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. I had fun yesterday watching and rewatching the plays by all the exciting players at both games. I just want to say, that no matter who won, and who walked away with their ears held low, I am proud of every single one of you. You gave it your all, all season, and look at how far you got! You made it to the biggest game of the year. And I'm so proud of you!!! You MUST be proud of yourself! Remember, just because you don't carry the trophy, doesn't mean you're still not a winner. You tried your best and that's all any of us can do. Never give up, whether you win or lose. I think we all can carry that truth with us no matter the circumstance in life.
And having said that, Mommy and I just want to say that we always have been and always will be Carolina Panthers fans, now and forever! You don't have to win a prize for us to be faithful to you.

Now, regarding the Puppy Bowl, as you can see, I've got at least half a team already in my family with my sisters Sassy, Bella, Dixie Mae and Peanut. We have a great time playing and running around together so we had a GREAT time watching it on TV yesterday. I'd like to share something that hits close to home about this year's Puppy Bowl.
One of the puppies, Charlie, a 16 week old male Feist/Whippet mix, who played in the first quarter for Team Fluff, was from City Dogs Rescue out of Washington DC, a rescue that Mommy has worked closely with. Great job out there Charlie!! Nice footwork and fantastic teamwork.
Here's a special story done by the Wall Street Journal done about Charlie and City Dogs Rescue. The rescue representative being interviewed, Amy Bandyk, is a friend of Mommy's, and loves the dogs very much!

City Dogs is one of the very first rescues that Mommy (Jenny)  got associated with through her work doing pet portraits for the Smyth County Animal Shelter. They were one of the first rescues that started a partnership with the shelter to pull some of the homeless dogs, foster and spay/neuter them, and then find them an amazing home. Mommy's photos of the dogs that she took while working with Officer and friend Kristy Moore at the shelter helped them first find the shelter! So it was really neat to see City Dogs represented in the national Puppy Bowl! City Dogs Rescue has helped rescue hundreds of unwanted dogs and puppies from just our one shelter alone in the last 2 years. And they do amazing work like give each dog training and follow up on the homes and pups for months after they are adopted. Yet another winner!!
So, did YOU watch either the Puppy Bowl 2016 or Super Bowl 50? How about the Kitty Bowl? I didn't get to watch that one... Who did you root for? What are you thoughts on all of this? I'd love to hear them.

The Joy of the Game Part II - Pixel's Football Action Shots

Here are some of my favorite photos that Mommy took of me when we played football this week, all in honor of SUPER DOG SUNDAY and SUPER BOWL SUNDAY.
A Pre-Game football portrait of me with my official SUPER DOG SUNDAY football.








Listening to my coach for instructions as the game begins. Nothing like a beautiful sunset as we start to play. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!








And we have kickoff. The joy of the game begins for me as I watch that ball fly through the air!









What a catch! I didn't know I could play this well so early in the game.







Another high flying catch. This time I jumped so high to catch that football that I couldn't even fit in the frame! My goodness, this is fun! (and I DID catch that ball...see the very top of the image, there it is.)


Listening as the crowd goes wild!












Wow! The fans are really lovin' my plays, as they have created a collage of my image in the crowd. That makes me feel super special!





Almost....almost. I got it!












The Joy of the Game...written all over my face as I bring the ball in for a touchdown!











Announcer says: "...and Pixel Blue Eyes brings it home again. And the crowd starts chanting 'Pixel, Pixel'!"











Running the ball across the line as I make my final touchdown and win the game. My goodness that was fun! What a wonderful day!






Don't forget to visit my 'Joy of the Game Part I' to see my friend Flurry, a beautiful giant schnauzer mix who needs a forever home real soon. She lives in Texas, and is listed with Pet Finders

The Joy of the Game - Super Dog Sunday Part I

~~Pixel's Official Contest Photos Blog Post ~~
It is Super Bowl Sunday here in the U.S. But for dogs and pet bloggers all over the internet, it is SUPER DOG SUNDAY! This specific post is part of a very fun Blog Hop where pet blogs post their most fun football pet photos to share. One cannot help but be excited that there is a contest with prizes awarded by our Fantastic Hosts: ALL THINGS DOG BLOG & DOG TIPPER, but all of this fun is really about supporting the PET FINDER FOUNDATION, who works with shelters, rescue organizations and animal welfare organizations across the country to help ensure that no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a good home. 
I have two very special football photos to share...  
The first one is of myself. The football was supplied by our two hosts a few weeks ago. I have been practicing my best football plays, and Mommy caught the action on camera. Here I am, running as I carry the ball I caught moments before into the 'end zone.' Can you see the dirt & stuff flying up from my paws and my ears flapping as I run? What a fun day it was! You can catch all the cool Pixel football action with lots and lots of photos at this blog link

This second very special photo is of a superstar named Flurry. Isn't she beautiful? She is a giant schnauzer mix and lives in Texas at the Pasadena Animal Rescue & Assistance shelter. She has the sweetest face, eyes and smile...and she needs a forever home really badly. I can tell she will be lots of fun to play with and cuddle. 
I had fun using Image Chef software to give her the superstar display she deserves. I wish I could be friends with her! Why don't you go see her on her Pet Finder's page? Please help her find her forever, loving home, just like I did.
