@Bethany -- Grey Wind, Lady, Summer, Shaggydog, Nymeria, and Ghost were dire wolves. Puppies are mewling little things fit only to be skewered on the spears of the Dothraki.
@Jedi Jami -- I swear I remember at some feast for Daenarys, one of the dishes was unborn puppies. I will try to find the reference.
@Copper -- you're going to think boring when Daenarys is toasting the hell out of King's Landing from the back of a dragon.
And Arya is my favoritest character. Her and Tyrion.
