It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Time to announce the finalists in our first annual Scottish Terrier and Dog News Halloween Costume competition. They are (in no particular order):

The Colonel aka Sting in a perennial dog favourite, the bumblebee costume

Anonymous in a skunk costume enhanced with a pretty pink bow

Dugan in a classic Tuxedo

Baily as the king, Elvis Presley

MacScottish in a classic kilt

Judge Merg will be making the final decision, and biting, whether before or after the winner is announced, is strictly forbidden. The judge has been asked not just to look for fabulous costumes but fabulous costumes that enhance the contenders’ essential Scottiness.

The winner will be announced on Halloween.
