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

They should just have had loads of pipes and dogs, for ages.

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