The 2014 Commonwealth Games kicked off in Glasgow this week and what better way to celebrate than with a compilation of gorgeous Scottish terrier pics? It seems the Games organisers love these quintessential Scottish pooches just as much as we do, choosing them to boldly leading every nation as they made their way around the opening ceremony arena!

Fondly known by the locals as the ‘Scottie’, this tough highland breed may be small but they’re not afraid to stand their ground! Both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and George W Bush chose the feisty terriers as White House pets while Parker Brothers decided that the hairy pooch was the perfect choice for one of its world famous playing pieces.

Now you’re clued up on a little Scottish terrier history, let’s take a look at the 14 reasons why we love them!
