Norm The Pug Is The Next Generation Of Canine Instagram Star (PHOTOS)

Move over, Tuna.

Social media hounds and their dogs may have made it big before, but this new duo is blurring the distinction between Instagram pet photos and art.

Photographer Jeremy Veach, 23, began taking daily photos of his tenacious pug Norm and posting them to his Instagram account in January. Since then his following has grown to over 30,000.

According to ABC, Veach was inspired by Maddie, another canine web-celeb who has famously been pictured standing, sitting and lying on a variety of things. Several of Veach's shots pay homage to Maddie, but he's also developed a unique style that's all Norm.

Veach and the spunky year-old pooch were featured in a recent issue of Ludique, a mobile photography magazine. The cover piece highlighted the pair's signature move, the pet selfie.

With a face like that, how could Norm be anything but an Internet star?
