Pugs of Westeros: A Canine Game of Thrones

Pugs of Westeros – the name encapsulates everything you need to know about the contents of this seriously cute video. Created by Pupstar Sonoma it features many of your much-loved Game of Thrones characters in all their finery. Windswept locations, intense acting and lavish sets – everything you would expect from what is currently the world’s favorite TV show. There is, of course, a small difference: the actors have been replaced with pugs.

This is very much a family project. Pupstar Sonoma showcases the work of Susan and Phillip Lauer with their three Pugs, Roxy, Blue and Bono. Together they bring you Rob and Ned Stark together with John Snow, Daenerys Targaryen (queen of all she surveys, naturally), Tyrion Lanister and Oberyn Martell plotting something ghastly and Joffrey Baratheon – who gives the cutest little yelp on his throne – I think he knows that his particular game is soon to be over!

The House of Lauer found a natural ally in the form of Josh Hittleman who produced the video which I hope has just produced about ten aaws from you!

If you think this is a one-off project from Pupstar Sonoma then you should take a look at their site. This is not your typical pug website by any means. There are a number of wonderful galleries of Roxy, Blue and Bono's costumed adventures but, after Westeros, I would have to say that The Pugs of Middle Earth is my own favorite (but then it would be, wouldn’t it!).

Let us know what you think!
