Amid rising cases of coronavirus, stress due to lockdown and thousands of deaths, a pug has been providing some comic relief to netizens around the world.
A Twitter user posted a picture that apparently has her pet dog, a pug, in it. The challenge she posed to her followers was that they had to locate where the pug was in the photo.
When you have found the pug just retweet ok pic.twitter.com/EISxlETNmP— ashqueen (@yesworryya) April 3, 2020
She wrote, “When you have found the pug just retweet ok,” asking people to not post the answer in the thread and ruin the brainstorming fun for others.
She also maintained that most of the comments that were carrying the answer were hidden from the Twitter thread.
The challenge fared well with the online crowd and several people took to the completion of the task. Since being posted on April 3, the tweet has received nearly 247,000 likes and more than 186,000 retweets. Many appreciated both the Twitter user as well as the pug for bringing cheer amid tough times. Others just had fun with the image.

Someone even gave an idea for the next pug quiz.
Like ... I was really stressing I couldn't find um. I did soooooooo maybe you can rehide the pug in a different place and we can find it again? Like "where's Waldo?" But with pugs instead!— STAY HOME! DONT BE A DICK. (@ChrisKingsFan) April 4, 2020
