As the Reindeer Games continue, the third leg of the Around-the-World Marathon is underway and it’s a fantastic one.
The 1-year-old rescue beagle-Lab mix, whose full name is Marty McFly, attended his first marathon with his parents, Jenny McCoy and Guilherme de Oliveira. A people person by nature, Marty gave runners a thrill by doing more than simply sitting and panting from the sidelines — he could be seen standing up on his back legs, with the help of his. This marathon is one of the best sightseeing runs of all time. Climing up two long hills (on different sides of the valley) give you exceptional aspect variety - showcasing some of the most beautiful mt scenery in the world. Other plus' this year included lots of elk (many young calfs that are too cute for words). Watch Full Episodes, Get Behind the Scenes, Meet the Cast, and much more. Stream Too Cute!

After covering all 50 states yesterday in the second leg of the marathon, the Great Eight reindeer must cover all the countries of South America and then fly across the South Pacific Ocean all the way to New Zealand and then Australia. Then it’s on to Asia.
“My that’s a grueling day,” said Rudolph. “I hope the reindeer can make it.”
And what would happen if they don’t make it? If they get tired and can’t fly?
Marathon Starting March 18 By Michael Malone March 18, 2020 Animal Planet will run a 94-hour marathon of series Too Cute!, starting at noon ET/PT March 18, and running until March 22 at 8 p.m. The series chronicles “the most precious moments and milestones in the lives of the cutest and most cuddly creatures.”.
“I don’t know,” said Manny Elf, head of Reindeer Games Event Planning. “I suppose it’s my job to think of those things. The reindeer are very strong and very talented. We’ve never thought about their possibly failing to finish the race. I suppose we should have a backup plan, a rescue plan.”
Well, with Santa in need of a rescue rocket, the North Pole already has its hands full with rescue attempts.
“That’s for sure,” said Manny. “I don’t know what we would do if the reindeer got lost or got tired and needed help. I am going to sit down and think about that one. For now, let’s hope everything goes okay.”
Slots at the borgata. So far, so good as the third leg of the race is underway. Yesterday, the second leg ended with a dash through California and now the reindeer are headed for Mexico.
At this point, Vixen has taken a slight lead followed by Dancer, Prancer and Cupid just an antler behind. Then it’s Donder, Blitzen, Dasher and Comet not all far off the pace.
The deer are heading for Central America and are up and over the Panama Canal. That puts them on track for Columbia, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina and all the great countries of South America.

After racing over the Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America, they are headed across the South Pacific Ocean.
“My that’s fantastic,” said Rudolph, watching from the Elfian Tracking Station at the North Pole. “The ocean is many thousands of miles wide. And the reindeer are scooting over it as though it were a small pond.”
Indeed, Santa’s reindeer look stronger than ever as they head over New Zealand and toward Australia and Asia.
At this point, it seems that Cupid has edged into the lead, followed by Blitzen, Dasher and Dancer. Close behind are Prancer, Comet, Donder and Vixen.
Check back tomorrow for the exciting final leg of the race and see who wins the fourth medal of the games.
With the ongoing spread of the novel coronavirus, citizens are grappling to make sense of the panic surrounding them. Many of them are now practicing social distancing hoping to contain the virus, however, staying indoors for hours seems to be making it difficult for us to stay sane. Hoping to make these monotonous days of self-quarantine a little better, Animal Planet will be airing a 94-hour marathon of their show Too Cute and it involves oodles of kittens and puppies. The channel recently announced this adorable line-up in celebration of the upcoming spring solstice.
Too Cute is a documentary-style footage of puppies and kittens which follows the pawsome life of several different litters of baby animals, especially puppies and kittens. Through this show, we get the opportunity to witness these little munchkins from when the squirming bundles of joy are just days-old to them achieving major milestones as they grow up. If watching ASMR and DIYs are just not getting you through the coronavirus crisis, Too Cute surely will. Bring a little brightness into your week with a 4-day long #toocutemarathon, beginning today at 12 noon ET! There’s something for every member of the family, wrote the channel on its Instagram handle.
The marathon which has already begun on Wednesday, March 18, will be running until Saturday, March 22, at 8 p.m. ET/ PT, so you better get that remote and check out the schedule. If you're craving for some more of this precious palate cleanser once the marathon's over, Animal Planet will be airing a Too Cute mini-marathon on Sunday, March 23, 6 a.m.-8 p.m. ET/PT, according to PEOPLE. Apart from Animal Planet, other networks are doing their part to keep us entertained as well. According to Scary Mommy, Hallmark is also bringing back its Christmas marathon which will begin this afternoon (Friday) and air through Sunday evening at 6 p.m.
The network will be airing 27 of its popular Christmas movies and if you're willing to divert your attention and watch two nice people fall in love, then this is your cue. This much-needed marathon is appropriately named 'We Need A Little Christmas.' Now, if you're not sold on the whole Christmas rerun of Hallmark, then ESPN will be airing seven hours of Tom Brady's championship Patriot games on Sunday, March 22. It would include seminal games and an abridged version of all six Brady Super Bowl victories.
Social distancing might seem a bit scary for some, however, it is important to do so now if we want to limit the spread of the COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has urged people not to gather in huge groups of 50 or more for the next eight weeks in the United States. 'Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals,' they wrote.
