When Jon Snow inevitably abandons his direwolf Ghost again, in purely-for-the-imagination future episodes of “Game of Thrones,” at least he’ll have a Rover-qualified pet sitter to look after him. (Watch out for “GoT” spoilers below if you’re not caught up!)

Rover, the Seattle-based pet sitting and dog-walking startup, couldn’t help but get in on the “GoT” hype, as HBO’s celebrated fantasy series came to a close on Sunday night with the final episode of Season 8.

The company created a fake sitter profile (on Facebook and Twitter) for Tormund Giantsbane, Snow’s trusted friend who watched over Ghost for two episodes north of the wall.

Viewers didn’t take too kindly to Snow ditching his doggy at Winterfell in Episode 4, telling Tormund that the south was no place for a direwolf. But by the end of Episode 6, Snow was patting the white wolf on the head and making good during their reunion.

And in his own review for Tormund’s services on Rover — which cost $35 a night for dog boarding, by the way — Snow shared his appreciation.

“Tormund is a giant man with a giant heart,” Snow wrote. “Ghost was well taken care of while I was queenslaying.”
