Earl the Puggle went viral online and has been compared to the popular Grumpy Cat
Grumpy Cat, we hate to break it to you, but there’s a new grumpy cutie in town…
Presenting, Earl the Grumpy Dog!
Here’s the stats: Earl is a 5-month-old Puggle and belongs to owners Derek Bloomfield and his girlfriend Christie.
His gloomy expression, permanent frown and furrowed eyebrows caught over two million people’s attention when 25-year-old Derek posted a pic of the pouting puppy on Reddit.
Before you knew it, people were making memes of the dog with cigars in his mouth and with jokes saying: ‘say fetch one more time’. And hey presto, Earl had become a viral superstar – what a world we live in eh?
His owner says that despite looking like ‘Dave who hates Disney in accounting’, the grumpy dog is actually a really energetic dog who loves all the things that doggies love: snacks, sunbathing and chasing balls in the park. What a life!
‘He is the most relaxed, content puppy either one of us has ever seen.’
‘He’s constantly trying to snuggle up to one of us and has us in constant fits of laughter through his facial expression and mannerisms..’
His sad expression is purely just down to a combination of his wrinkles, under bite and dark complexion. He’s just as healthy as any other pup out there. Honestly though, we can’t decide if we just want to cuddle right up with the little man, or if we’re actually a bit scared and that he’ll open his mouth and a bark will be replaced by Phil Mitchell’s voice…
And we’re not the only ones to have this conflict of emotions! Derek says that: ‘People usually say “Oh my god, he is so cute” or “is he always that grumpy?” It’s normally a combination of those two phrases and laughter.’
‘We were both surprised at how quickly he went viral.’
Well, if Earl follows in Grumpy Cat’s footsteps – who’s actual name is (you’re not even ready) Tardar Sauce (told ya) – then they better get a bank account opened for the little fella.
After Grumpy Cat went viral, the two-year-old has since gained more than a $100 million fortune! That’s more than Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman, Cameron Diaz and Matthew McConaughey…
Someone get us a grumpy bunny, quick!
