Many cats have tried to take down Grumpy Cat, and every one has failed. Why? Because they're cats. We know what grumpy cats look like, and we're bored. We demand a new grumpy animal! But who will come to the rescue? I'll tell you who.

Earl the grumpy puppy has taken Instagram by storm with his trademark grouchy puss. He's a dog, but he's grumpy. It's such a fresh take! And the World Wide Web can't get enough.

Earl is a five-month-old puggle (a pug/beagle mix for you laypeople). He lives in Iowa with his owner, Derek, who says that despite his face, Earl is a very happy dog. He 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. Whenever he wants something he'll calmly sit down and stare at us until we ask him the right question. Then he wags his tail in approval."

I'm going to choose to believe that Earl is actually grumpy, because that's cuter. But you can enjoy Earl any way you want, as long as you don't look at Grumpy Cat any more. That cat is dead to us all! Puppies forever!
