Back by popular demand, it’s our 3rd annual Thanksgiving Day search-and-find puzzle.

As you probably know, a calendar quirk means Hanukkah and Thanksgiving align this year, which is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. (Sidebar: Many people in the Triangle are keeping the two holiday traditions separate. Click here to read the article.)

This year, staff illustrator Tim Lee imagines what a Thanksgiving – or Thanksgivukkah – for dogs might look like, while hiding more than 70 items for the youngsters (or the younsters-at-heart) to find.

Use the list of items below the photos to get started.

And pass out extra copies of the puzzle and see who in your family can spot the most. (Spot. Get it?)

Or if you’re not in a hunting mood, whip out the crayons and color the pups. This would look so great on the fridge!

We hope you enjoy the puzzle.

The News & Observer staff hopes you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very happy Hanukkah!
