Pugs of Westeros sit, stay on the Iron Throne

Westeros has gone to the dogs.

Westeros is going to the dogs—literally.

We’ve seen too many different versions of the Game of Thrones theme to keep track of, but this time, instead of changing up the music, the actors were swapped out for dogs.

Blinkbox, the U.K. on-demand video service that also brought you Daenerys’s dragons on a golf course last week, recruited Phillip and Sue Lauer and their three pugs to help celebrate the service’s release of the fourth season by dressing them up as some of our favorite characters and recreating some key scenes.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

The Lauers have been dressing up Roxy, Blue, and Bono as various movie and TV characters for years, although they’ve never before done anything on this scale; the Iron Throne alone took Sue two weeks to make, and they’d only done still photos before. But the dogs get excited every time they’re taken near the studio.

We already can’t wait for the next shoot.
