And while the pair normally only shoot stills, they jumped at the chance of creating a mini-movie based on one of their favourite shows after being contacted by TV streaming service blinkbox.

Philip 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 a Game of Thrones tribute, she just couldn't resist."

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 towards it they get excited."
