Dr. Jill Biden shares special message during Puppy Bowl XVIII with new Biden family puppy, Commander

February 10, 2022

Puppy Bowl XVIII is right around the corner! Ahead of the big game on Sunday, a day before Valentine’s Day, we bring you a moment from the event featuring a special message of love from the White House. In this all-new video message from Dr. Jill Biden, Discovery’s audiences are introduced to the Biden family puppy, Commander, while the First Lady of the United States reminds us all how special our pets are as they “bring us unconditional love, joy and comfort every day”. 

This year, Puppy Bowl weekend programming leading up to big game includes Inside the BowlWhere Are They Now and From Puppy Bowl with Love, which highlights the most loving and endearing past moments of PUPPY BOWL, including fuzzy faced kisses, sideline snoozers, and water bowl splashing. We are reminded on Puppy Bowl game day, and Valentine’s Day, just of how truly special a pet’s love is, and how an animal’s life can be transformed when given a second chance.
