You an glimpse in the foreground the body of the mother to the pups. Yes, she’s huge. I saw the prop in the prop room at Paint Hall, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog of an equal size and bulk.

If the show is granted additional seasons, it’ll be very interesting to see how they deal with the direwolf pups growing up.
