The new White House puppy, Commander, will be making his television debut at this year’s “Puppy Bowl,” which broadcasts on Super Bowl Sunday at 2 p.m. EST on “Animal Planet,” and is available to stream on Discovery+ as well.

In a video that features first lady Jill Biden alongside the Bidens’ new German Shepard, the first lady is explains how the Puppy Bowl — and Super Bowl — take place just one day before Valentine’s Day this year.

“You know, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it’s all about love. What’s so wonderful about having pets is that they bring us unconditional love, joy and comfort every day,” Biden said, while Commander is seen playing fetch in the White House halls.

“All of us are wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day,” Biden added in her message for the “Puppy Bowl,” while sitting together in the White House’s theater room, watching clips of past “Puppy Bowls” alongside Commander.

At the end of last month, the Bidens welcomed another pet to the White House, a cat named Willow, who took a liking to the first lady during her time on the campaign trail in 2020 when she stopped in a Philadelphia suburb, Willow Grove, for which the gray-and-white cat is named.
