So, this crazy new meme called “cat beards” has been all over the Internet lately and we couldn’t help but be amused. A cat beard is basically when you take a selfie and you place your cat in front of your face with it’s chin up so it looks like your cat is actually your beard. We loved it, and we were about to do a roundup of the best of the best cat beards, when suddenly, the magic of dog lovers vs. cat owners led us to find something equally as magical: dog beards. Dog beards – same concept as cat beards but with our canine friends instead – are now a thing as well. And we couldn’t be happier.

But the real question here is, which is better? Cat beards or dog beards? We picked our 10 favorite cat beard and dog beard pictures from Buzzfeed and are making them face-off. Who will win?
