The opening ceremony consisted mainly of cheese (not the edible cheese!), although I did enjoy watching the dancing Tunnock's Teacakes, woof!

Taking a slightly different route to their usual evening prance, they led the 71 Commonwealth teams around the stadium, mildly oblivious to the extreme noise and big, bright lights.

Woof, however, earlier today, I was having a good old moan to Clyde, the Commonwealth Games Mascot.
|Clyde, I have a problem!|
Yes, Scotties are actually called Scottish terriers, and these are the Glasgow games, but they're not the only breeds from bonnie Scotland, are they?
The people who organised this COMPLETELY forgot to include the:
GOLDEN RETRIEVERS (originally fae up here!),
Blue paul terriers,
Sporting Lucas terriers,
Dandie Dinmont terriers,
Personally, I think some better planning could have been done here. Whine.
Although, the Scotties were fab, and I am really enjoying the sports so far!

*PLEASE NOTE, we have absolutely nothing against any scotties, this post is only a bit of fun. Like we mentioned already, we thought the dogs in the ceremony were brilliant, and that the ceremony was fun and interesting, even if it was a tad cheesy. I hope we haven't upset anydoggy, because we still love Scottie dogs!*
