It’s not just the Patriots representing New England on the big screen this Super Bowl Sunday, but Rhode Island’s own Paddington will be showing her stuff and competing in this years Puppy Bowl, giving us another “athlete” to cheer on this Sunday!
Paddington, a mixed breed pup, was rescued from a high-kill shelter down in the south by the East Greenwich Animal Protection League, where she was taken back up to RI along with her littermates, who were nick-named “Bear Pups”, hence the name Paddington.
The East Greenwich Animal Protection League knew Paddington was a star, and submitted photos along with her story to the Puppy Bowl, and the adorable little pup was selected to compete month the other pup “athletes” this Sunday at 3:00pm!
Paddington has since been placed in a very loving family and now goes by the name Trixie, but will always be known from her fame as Paddington from the Puppy Bowl!
Yeah, Super Bowl parties are fun, but how great does a Puppy Bowl viewing party sound?! The organization will be holding a viewing party at 2:00pm at 44 Worthington Rd. in Cranston for both the pre-show, and the Puppy Bowl where you can join and cheer on our star, along with their own mini live Puppy Bowl in a mini football field they had made just for the occasion!
The East Greenwich Animal Protection League is an organization that has been helping animals find loving homes for over 30 years now. They can be found on Facebook under “The East Greenwich Animal Protection League” or at their website, egapl.com for adoption information.
