The internet's latest craze is a festive brainteaser by Canine Cottages has left many scratching their heads.
Do you have a friend who is way too enthusiastic about brainteasers? Like that one chirpy coworker who forwards the latest viral brainteaser to the whole team while you're contemplating the purpose of your existence in the middle of a hectic workday. Even those who've marked this low-key annoying riddler's mails as spam aren't spared as this individual then goes around the office insisting that everyone drop whatever they're doing and solve the puzzle ASAP. In case you don't have someone like this is your life, fret not dear reader, for I shall bear this burden for you today.
Don't worry, this isn't another one of those is the "Yanny" or "Laurel" conundrums. The one I have for you today is very on theme for the festive season and kind of adorable. It was recently gifted to the internet by the good folks over at Canine Cottages, which according to a report by Insider, is a service that provides dog-friendly houses for those traveling in the UK with their pooches. In addition to putting you in touch with properties that "have been paw-picked for their dog-friendly features," the service also hooks you up with city guides so that you can explore the locality with your furry best friend.
While the service itself sounds incredibly cool, allow me to turn your attention to Canine Cottages' new holiday-themed puzzle that's left netizens scratching their heads. Look at this image here:
At first glance, it looks like a sea of festive polar bears, doesn't it? Look at them sporting those adorable little Christmas hats! So cute! As for this brainteaser, the challenge is to spot an even cuter doggo hiding among his furry friends from the North Pole. Do you see him? Go on, look closer:
Providing a little context to the puzzle, Canine Cottages wrote, "Adorable little Frenchie Pierre has joined his humans on a trip to the North Pole to visit Santa Paws, but got distracted by the hundreds of polar bears having a Christmas party in the Arctic! After deciding to join in with the fun and make some new furry friends, he’s got lost in the crowd—and it’s up to you to find him." Apparently, it took the folks at Canine Cottages an average time of 2 minutes and 49 seconds to spot Pierre. Did you beat their average time? No? Pierre is right there with his tiny paws and itty-bitty ears peeking out from behind the bears! Can't spot him?
Alright, don't go pulling your hair out now. Here he is:
Did you manage to find Pierre within the average time? Way to go, pal!
