A really elementary submission. Nothing fancy, so will be well thrilled if this is 5.7+.

Stole the title from Grumpy Cat. Seemed appropriate given that my pug and Grumpy Cat look alike and probably have the same philosophy on life.

Adorable Pug! Doesn't look nearly as grumpy as the famous cat, and this is an infinitely nicer image. Looks more like he's pleading with those big, beautiful eyes. I am having the most awful urge to hug him!

Ha! That pug has an Oscar the Grouch type expression. Great photographic capture. Great details down to the whiskers on him. Wow, he/she has really big eyes - all the better to flash the 'puppy dog eyes' at you to get what this doggie wants. Nicely done.
