10 Hilarious Photos of Dogs with "Old Man" Faces


One of the magical things about pets is how hard we fall in love with them. All it really takes is one look into their eyes, and you fall hard. Dogs’ eyes and faces carry with them a wisdom that’s not quite like any other household pet. They can look at you with their eyes, and you’ll know that whatever weight is sitting on your shoulder, you have someone who is willing to bear that with you: your trusted dog.

There’s a new book on the market now that looks beyond a dog’s eyes! It takes a closer look at the story their faces, full of wisdom and experience, tell. “Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines” (October 2013; Running Press) by Tom Cohen features gorgeously photographed portraits of dogs whose faces resemble the faces of irritable human men. I mean, what’s not to love about that?!

Click through and see 10 of the dogs featured in the book who have “old man” faces:

    I think it's the eyebrow haircut, but either way, he's wonderfully grumpy.

  • Saul 5 of 11

    He has a sad look to his eyes, too. I wonder if he's aching to climb into his rocking chair.

    I can't. There's nothing to say about this face. He's too cute.

    This one is my favorite. I mean, I can totally see the older gentleman down the street here.

  • Mr. Tiggs 10 of 11

    He seems like he's really focused on something, and if he's like a grumpy old man, he's making sure those kids don't cross his lawn.

    Oh, crush my soul with your eyes — why don't you, Muttley?
