Positively Puzzling, Vol. 4

This next edition of Positively Puzzling begins with the largest puzzle we’ve attempted thus far; 2000 pieces. Needless to say, we were at this one for a while. Unlike previous featured puzzles, we decided to preserve and mount this one. It is currently proudly featured in our games room.

Cartoon puzzles remain some of my favourites. Perhaps another reason that we enjoyed this puzzle so much was that some of the antics took us back to a time in yesteryear when my wife and I held memberships in a local gym. If we didn’t know better, I’m sure we’ve seen some of those people before. LOL.
Our magnificent solar system and man’s primitive (?) attempt to infiltrate it. When I think on scenes like this, I am reminded of what the psalmist said: “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8: 3-4; ESV)

Puppies, puppies, and more puppies. This beautiful puzzle was a surprise gift from a dear friend. As dog lovers, my wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Orhan Pamuk, author of My Name is Red, said, “Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.” I like that! An additional surprise was discovering a couple cats posing with the dogs. Can you find them?

This last puzzle we discovered at a games store. Being bookworms ourselves, with a substantial home library, we loved the image immediately. To this day, one of my favourite kinds of stores are used bookstores. I have spent countless hours browsing their plethora of offerings and discovering all sorts of treasures. This puzzle has also been preserved and mounted in our home library.
