Meet Earl the Grumpy Puppy, Grumpy Cat’s competition

Grumpy Cat, the well-known feline whose face is permanently fixed in a frown, has got some competition.

His name is Earl the Grumpy Puppy, and he’s even got his own Facebook page and Instagram account.

We give it a month before he’s got his own modeling contract and commercial, too.

Here he is, in all his grumpy glory:

According to his Facebook page, Earl is a second generation Puggle who became famous after his owner, Derek Bloomfield, posted his photo to Reddit and got more than two million views.

Bloomfield, who lives in Iowa, told the Mirror that despite his grumpy appearance, he’s a friendly pooch whose under bite causes a permanent frown.

"He's constantly trying to snuggle up to one of us and has us in constant fits of laughter through his facial expressions and mannerisms,” Bloomfield said.

We give Earl the official Stargazing stamp of approval. Does he have any siblings?
