    DOGS!

    Every nation was led out at the Glasgow ceremony by a Scottish Terrier.

    It was all everyone was talking about.

    Some of the dogs didn't want to walk all the way and had to be carried.

    But everyone agreed it was a wonderful touch by the organisers.

    It was undoubtedly the highlight of the opening ceremony.

    Scotty dogs lead in each team. Whoever though of that deserves a treat.

    What a great touch, for each team to be led into the arena by Scottie dogs. #Glasgow2014

    Best bits so far have been the three-drinks-in-melancholy-singalongs. And the dogs.

    Tomorrow evening's walk is going to be quite a let-down for these dogs.

    What I want to know is where did they abduct so many Scottie dogs from? #Glasgow2014

    There was some suggestion the dogs may have been used multiple time for different nations...

    Is it the same Scotty dog going round & round, with a quick change of jacket - or do they have a lot of black dogs lined up out the back?
