For some reason, people and their dogs often look really similar. But then there are people whose dogs are their complete opposites. Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, the man who plays the almost inhumanly massive Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane on Game of Thrones, has the perfect dog for a man his size—a Pomeranian. Hey, Pomeranians are perfect for people of all sizes.
In case you are not familiar with the show or the giant man, here's another picture from his Instagram account. He seems like a totally nice guy from all accounts (other than when he's destroying people on the TV show), but he has the ability to look truly terrifying.
The puppy, on the other hand, is the farthest thing from terrifying, unless you are worried about dying of cuteness, in which case—be afraid. Be very afraid.
The puppy, named Ástríkur or "Asterix" even has his own Instagram account, because Björnsson, a skilled and adored dog-holder, is a kind man who wouldn't dare keep such cuteness from the rest of the world.
There is really nothing cuter than a big man and wee pup (except maybe just a puppy alone, or with other puppies. Okay, there are a lot of things cuter). In the caption for this picture, Björnsson refers to him as his "Lion."
Poms do look like lions, and they can also look like foxes, teddy bears, and occasionally dolphins.
Asterix is a very big (teeny tiny) fan of Game of Thrones.
And a pretty big fan of himself, too, which is completely understandable.
Björnsson has to work out a lot to maintain his muscles, and Asterix has to work out a lot because he's a tiny puppy hoping to one day be bigger than a French fry.
Björnsson also has to eat a lot to maintain his weight (which is about 400 pounds). Currently, puppies are not listed on his insane diet, but Asterix should probably sleep with one (round, adorable, button) eye open just in case.
