Touchdown on 'Puppy Bowl VII'Several of the players in 'Puppy Bowl VII' (Sun., 3PM ET on Animal Planet) got a little distracted, happy to just roughhouse with each other.

This is Toporoff's fourth year in charge of 'Puppy Bowl,' which is shot over two long days in October. (The kitten halftime show is taped on a separate day to keep the cats and dogs from fighting.) We spoke with Toporoff about casting the puppies, picking the gameday lineup and calling puppy penalties.
