Lots of cooking and festivities happening this time of year -- does your dog like to get underfoot when you're in the kitchen? That could easily be the case with this #ArtfulPup in the scene unfolding here with Berthe Morisot's 1886 painting, "In the Dining Room" from the collection at the National Gallery of Art.

Here's "cadet" Tavish at attention with the answer to today's "Where in the World Wednesday" mystery pic: it's West Point, the U.S. Military Academy. #WITWW

Tavish is back with another "Where in the Wednesday" puzzler for you. This time he's at a university whose founding legislation was signed by Thomas Jefferson in 1802. Where was the Intrepid Pup? Call out your best guess here. We'll reveal the location with a second photo at 5pm. #WITWW

Whoa, many an #ArtfulPup here! This pen and ink piece dates to circa 1610 and is by the Dutch artist Joos Van Momper the Younger. Entitled, "Landscape with Horsemen Hawking," it's on view at the National Gallery of Art as part of a special "Bosch to Bloemaert" exhibition from Rotterdam's Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

Did you figure out today's #WITWW mystery photo? Tavish was at the historic Saranac Laboratory in Saranac Lake, New York. Dr. Edward Trudeau expanded his research on tuberculosis and moved into this new space in 1894. Today the building is home to a museum, Historic Saranac Lake, where you can see portions of the restored laboratory and learn more about Trudeau's scientific legacy.

It's "Where in the World Wednesday," so here's your weekly mystery pic puzzler. This time the Intrepid Pup is at the first purpose-built laboratory in the U.S. for researching tuberculosis. Think you know where Tavish was? Reply below with your guess, and we'll reveal the answer at 5pm. #WITWW

πŸŽ¨πŸ•The Dutch masters seem to have really liked their dogs -- we found more than a dozen in paintings in the "Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting" (#VermeerinDC) at the National Gallery of Art! Today's #ArtfulPup is in Gerard ter Borch's circa 1658 painting, "Officer Writing a Letter." And if you look closely, the inclusion of the ace of hearts on the floor is a clue that it's a πŸ’Œ. http://ow.ly/i/AMyMz

Feeling thankful -- with Massasoit, chief of the Wampanoag, and William Bradford, governor of the Plymouth Colony. Happy Thanksgiving, all!

So, did you guess Plymouth, Massachusetts? There is normally a full-size replica of the Mayflower, the 17th-century vessel that carried the Pilgrims to the "New World." Sadly, the ship wasn't there when we visited. It's off being restored in anticipation of 2020, the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims' arrival. Tavish went to see Plymouth Rock instead, and as you can see, he was a little underwhelmed. The illustrious rock was temporarily tarped to protect it from nearby construction. #WITWW
