Grumpy Cat, step aside. There's a new scowling pet sensation taking over the internet and we. are. in.love.
While we'll always have a special place in our hearts for the adorably cranky kitty – there's a new equally grumpy dog taking her place. Meet Earl the Grumpy Puppy! The five-month-old puggle is the latest sensation sweeping the internet, with many a meme shaking out of the whole thing, of course.
Earl's owner, Derek Bloomefield, told Yahoo UK, "He has had the grumpy expression from day one. The vet said he's as healthy as any other puppy. He just looks grumpy because of his underbite, wrinkles, and dark complexion. He is the most relaxed, content puppy either one of us has ever seen."
See? Beneath that pouty face lies a very happy puppy.
