Grumpy Cat has not even had it like Earl the grumpy puppy has had it...

Derek Bloomfield started an Instagram account for his dog, whose mug makes it appear as though he permanently just woke up on the wrong side of the kennel.

Derek told Yahoo! UK that Earl is actually very happy, despite the fact that "he has had the grumpy expression from day one."

"He just looks grumpy because of his underbite, wrinkles, and dark complexion," he said. "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," Derek continued. "Then he wags his tail in approval."

So don't let the death stare fool you...
