"...At the conclusion of the two-hour contest, which was won by 
everybody for the fifth straight year, Puppy Bowl organizers honored 
Pupamalu with the Most Valuable Puppy award for causing five fumbles, 
recovering three lost plush footballs, and returning a bouncy hedgehog 
toy for an 80-yard touchdown. Long known for his physical play, Pupamalu 
was fearless in his pursuit of intimidating pit bull mixes, larger and 
fluffier dogs, and his own tail.

"There are not many puppies who can come into such a pressure-filled 
environment and make an immediate impact on every playful interaction," 
said Harry Kalas, Puppy Bowl play-by-play announcer and NFL Films 
narrator. "Pupamalu may seem out of control when he risks injury by 
leaping over the dog pile, but then he'll execute a textbook tackle by 
staying low and wrapping up the hind legs."

"You don't find a mix of talent and heart like this very often," Kalas 
added. "He is such a good puppy. Isn't he? Isn't he? Yes, he is a very 
good doggie.""
