This is Sydney, a 4-year-old pug from Edinburgh.
Sydney is one of nine adorable finalists for the "ambassadog" position, as is Blaze, a border collie from the Isle of Skye.
Cassie was rescued from a stray shelter in Romania.
George is a really big deal on Instagram.
Casper is a castle enthusiast and blogger.
Cluanie once climbed Ben Nevis in a kilt.
Manny likes agility classes and fancy hotels.
Bertie enjoys spending time at his holiday home in the northwest Highlands.
And Fenton enjoys sailing around Shetland.
To avoid a "Boaty McBoatface"-style drama, we should clarify that the judges' decision is final, but Visit Scotland does want to "factor in what BuzzFeed readers think". The result will be announced during May. Check out Visit Scotland's dedicated Ambassadog page for more information.
