We've seen many unusual characters over the years on Game of Thrones, from frozen members of the undead to giants storming the Night's Watch.

But we've never seen tiny adorable dogs dressed like Game of Thrones characters... until now!

Streaming service Blinkbox has teamed with owners Phillip and Sue Lauer to feature their three pets (Roxy, Blue and Bono) as The Pugs of Westeros.

And the results are as impressive as they are hilarious!

There's pug Tyrion Lannister sitting under his family’s crest; and pug Daeneys Targaryen surrounded by her dragons; and even pug Varys, donning his familiar robe and wearing his familiar expression.

Forget winter. Hilarity is coming, GoT fans! Prepare for cute battle check out the pictures now:

Only one of these three characters is alive on the show, but let's avoid telling that to the pugs.

If you've gotta get canned from one of the most popular TV series in recent memory, you can at least have a sense of humor about it.

That's the lesson we learned from 16-year-old Aimee Richardson and the hilarious Vine video that she uploaded after receiving news that she wouldn't be returning for Game of Thrones, season 5.

We all know GoT kills off characters like it's going out of style, but at least the Ned Starks and Oberyn Martells of Westeros get to go out with cool death scenes. 

Richardson - who plays the heretofore seldom seen Princess Myrcella Baratheon - has been recast simply because producers decided to go in a different direction.

Richardson has been with the series since season one and was probably eagerly anticipating her character's expanded storyline in season five.

In case you haven't heard, Game of Thrones fully dominated Comic Con 2014.

First, there was the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo that went viral for the simple reason that GRRM's face on Emilia Clarke's body is a disturbingly awesome sight.

That was followed by a Game of Thrones cosplay selfie that looks like a Westerosi version of the Sgt. Pepper's cover.

As you might've imagine, a panoramic shot of 50 or so GoT cosplayers featured a bunch of Khaleesis. But what caught out eye was the Arya Stark lookalike in the lower left hand corner. Some even suggested that was the real Maisie Williams!

We now know that it wasn't, but amazingly, Maisie could've easily been looking on as this photo was taken:

The first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman may have dominated the headlines, but truly this year's Comic Con belonged to Game of Thrones.

First, we had George R.R. Martin's Khaleesi photo which proved once and for all that the sick mind behind the Red Wedding actually does have a sense of humor.

That was topped the next day by Martin's weenies vs. boobies discussion, which was every bit as amazing as it sounds.

When they're fondly reflecting on Comic Con 2014, however, we think there's one moment that will leap to the mind of every GoT obsessive. Fortunately, for us, it was caught on camera:

Yes, that's an estimated 47 convention-goers in Westerosi garb. There's a lot to love here, but we think the prize for most convincing cosplay goes to the Arya Stark in the lower left corner.

Seriously, is that actually Maisie Williams?!

There were a lot of interesting moments at Comic Con 2014, held this past weekend in San Diego. We're sure for many fans, just the opportunity to get the first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was worth the price of admission.

But while Gadot's hotness reigned supreme at the Batman vs. Superman panel, it was surely Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin who provided the bulk of this year's highlights. 

First, the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo took the Internet by storm and proved and that the man responsible for Theon Greyjoy having his peen lopped off has a sense of humor after all.

Speaking of wangs, it got even better from there. Check out this interview that Martin gave on the red carpet:

Yes, the revered author responsible for one of the most popular literary works of our time thinks it's important that you know he prefers boobies to weenies.

A slew of new faces are coming to Game of Thrones Season 5.

HBO announced at the show's Comic-Con panel today that viewers will meet Oberyn's brother and a trio of his daughters in 2015.

Who will take on these roles? What other characters have been cast? The network unveiled a very helpful teaser to spread the word and educate fans on these newbies.

Click Play and start to wonder now: Who will be the first to die?

The network also made it clear that not everything on Game of Thrones is as serious as death.

George R.R. Martin is something of a god in the nerd world, so it stands to reason that he's in attendance at at Comic Con 2014, currently being held in San Diego.

Martin clearly has no problem pissing off fans when it comes to things like killing off characters, or taking freakin' forever to wrap up a story, but when a young Game of Thrones devotee approaches him with a hilarious request, GRRM is apparently happy to oblige.

The dude in the foreground is a Reddit user who crossed paths with Martin at the convention and asked him to stick his head through a Daenerys Targaryen cut-out. Judging by the photo the author promptly, and awesomely did so.

Sure, Emilia Clarke might be the hottest woman alive, but we think George makes a pretty convincing Khaleesi. If she ever has to bow out for any reason, we say just have Martin fill the role. No one will even notice.

Game of Thrones fans know that one of the first in the series many shocking plot twists came at the end of season one, when Lord Eddard - Stark family patriarch and pretty much the only stand-up guy in King's Landing - had his head lopped off in a public execution.

Up until then, it seemed as though Ned Stark was to serve as the show's main protagonist, and viewers assumed he would go on to play the role of the grounded (though not always particularly bright) moral compass of the show for years to come.

Usually when a character gets his head chopped off and displayed on a spike, that means it's the last we'll see of them. Even in the land of White Walkers, that's one way to make sure your foe is well and truly dead.

But a popular fan theory, coupled with a surprising new interview with the man who portrayed Ned Stark has left many wondering if the Lord of Winterfell might actually return to GoT (spoilers lie ahead):

Back in May, Lily Allen claimed she was offered a role on Game of Thrones, but turned it down because the part required her to be felt up by her brother.

As though that story weren't strange enough, it got even weirder when said brother - Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy on HBO's most watched series - revealed that his big sister was lying and in had, in fact, never been offered a part on the series.

Now, it seems Alfie has ordered Lily to make like Hodor and say little to nothing on the topic of GoT.

Asked by an Australian radio station if she'd actually auditioned for a part on the series, Allen pled the fifth, claiming her brother had expressly forbidden her from spreading more Thrones-related BS:

Fantasy author George R.R. Martin gained a slew of new fans when the TV series based on his A Song of Ice and Fire novels became the most-watched show in HBO's history.

Now millions of Game of Thrones fans are dying to find out how the story ends, and, well...hoping that Martin doesn't die before the story ends.

Martin has a reputation for taking his time with the dense, intricately-detailed ASOIAF books (Six years passed between the publication of the fourth and fifth installments.), and with at least two books remaining in the series, many fans are concerned that the 65-year-old GRRM won't live to complete his masterpiece.

Asked about that possibility in a recent interview, Martin replied angrily:
