Puppy Bowl and the growth of online cute

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

But if you go by Schachner's officiating, it's clear which puppies may take the prize for cuteness. He calls a penalty for "excessive cuteness," on three snuggling morkies (Maltese-Yorkie mixes) that are the most adorable things to have ever lived. They look like canine descendants of Swiffers.

"That's a 10-yard penalty," rules Schachner. "You know what? Fifteen-yard penalty. It's that cute."

Puppy Bowl IX airs Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m., and repeats for the rest of the day, on Animal Planet.
