Puppies take the field for Puppy Bowl XIV.

The latest clashes brought to 14 the number of Turkish troops killed so far in operation . A previous statement said one serviceman was killed and another wounded in that attack.

The best part? The 90 dogs who will appear on the show are all rescues from different natural disaster zones, hailing from 48 shelters in Texas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Miami and more.

Puppy Bowl XIII's PEDIGREE (R) Starting Lineup featured 39 puppies who competed for the individual BISSELL (R) MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) by scoring the most touchdowns with dog-approved toys by Petco. And they're all up for adoption - and could even be yours, if you act fast enough.

Viewers themselves can adopt the very puppies they see on television by logging into the official Animal Planet website to contact their respective shelters.

The Puppy Bowl kicks off Sunday at 2 p.m. and the first ever Dog Bowl, featuring older dogs, airs Saturday at 4 p.m., both will feature a dog from Houston. And those cats from the Kitty Bowl are adoptable too.
