(Just as a warning, if you haven't watched season one of Game of Thrones, but want to, don't read further. There will be some small spoilers.)
So, recently I've been really interested in Game of Thrones. Unfortunately I do not have HBO GO, nor do I have tons of spare money to blow on buying the seasons out so far on DVD. Luckily, my boyfriend's mother has Netflix. Not the instant streaming one, the one where she gets DVDs in the mail (I miss when those used to be part of the same thing).
So me and the boyfriend got snuggled in some comfy blankets, eating some really good food, and settled in to watch what we could of Game of Thrones. We finished the first season just a few days ago(so no spoilers about anything upcoming please! It's hard enough to avoid spoilers on Tumblr!), and I absolutely fell in love with the direwolves that belonged to the Stark children.
All of the direwolves are so perfect, and the dogs that play them do such a good job. And oh my gosh are they cute. I don't actually care for the Starks that much (although I do like Arya, and sometimes, only sometimes, I like Sansa and Jon Snow as well.) but I love their direwolves.
Anyway, I learned through watching some of the bonus features on the last disc of the season, that they used dogs called Northern Inuit Dogs for the direwolves. Just look at this cutie, and tell me that he/she is not the cutest doggy you've ever seen:

And, after looking up so much about these types of dogs, and gushing over how cute they were, I felt a little guilty about not taking the time to gush over the cuteness of my own puppies so I had to take some pictures of them too and play with them a bunch to ease my guilty conscience!
So there is my sleepy puppy with his pretty blue eyes that I really need to take into the vet sometime soon to get his nails clipped. Maybe he doesn't look like a pretty wolf, but he's really cute in his own way too!
Who is your favorite character from Game of Thrones, season one? And which is your favorite direwolf?
