Internet prepare yourself: here you'll find pugs dressed up as Game of Thrones characters. If you haven't exploded yet then we suggest you read on for more Westeros canine fun.

Movie and TV service Blinkbox has put together this collection of incredible images and short video titled The Pugs of Westeros.

The tribute to the fantasy show, based on the books by George RR Martin, sees some of the best-loved characters in pug form.

Pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono play doggy versions of the main characters, including conniving King Joffrey, Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.

The pugs’ owners, Phillip Lauer (57) and his wife Sue (47), have been dressing their pugs up as characters from cinema and TV since they were puppies.

They normally only shoot stills photography but jumped at the chance of creating a mini-movie based on one of their favourite shows.

Phillip said: "Sue is a professional photographer and designer and she loves to take pictures of our pugs in various scenarios. When blinkbox set us the challenge of Game of Thrones tribute we couldn’t resist. Sue spent two weeks just creating the Iron Throne alone but it was well worth it."

He added: "The pugs have been doing this since they were puppies. We have a studio set up in the garage and whenever I walk them towards it they get excited, no doubt wondering what’s next. It’s fun for them, but they do take it seriously – they are proper little professionals."

Take a look at some of the genius photos from the series, as well as a video clip, below:
