WASHINGTON — Four-legged participants in Animal Planet's "Puppy Bowl" have been coached by two of the most famous dogs in America: White House pets Bo and Sunny.Michelle Obama and her furry companions recently helped more than a dozen pups from animal shelters around the country get ready for the canine competition during drills on the South Lawn of the White House.

The "Puppy Bowl" is like a football game, but the players are pooches in need of loving homes.

Dogs score touchdowns when they cross the goal line with a toy, and bios of each puppy on the roster appear on screen to let viewers know how to find them for adoption.

The program airs Sunday, the same day as the Super Bowl, on Animal Planet.
