The Scotsman cartoon: Scottie dogs cause a stir
THE Scottie dogs which took part in the athletes’ parade stole the show at the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
Fans flocked to Twitter to tell of their delight as the terriers trotted around Celtic Park sporting red tartan coats bearing the name of the national team they were leading out.
Twitter was awash with messages from fans who said the Scotties were the true stars of the show.
Andy Murray’s mother, Judy, posted a photograph of Hamish, the Scottie who lead out the Scottish team, with the message: “Scottie dogs in tartan coats at CG opening ceremony. Barkingly brilliant.”
And Scottish MP Jackie Baillie wrote on Twitter: “Just love the Scottie dogs! Can I have one please?”
