This Thursday, the people of Scotland will be taking part in a referendum to answer the question, “Should Scotland be an independent country?” The outcome of a positive vote could see Scotland leaving the United Kingdom to become a self-ruling territory. Naturally, then, we scoured the Internet to find out what the dogs of Scotland are predicting for this historical occasion.

In a truly independent Scotland, all puppies will have the inalienable right to a luxurious tartan suitcase.

When hitting the social media campaign trail, it is always prudent to show your wacky side. Everyone loves a Scottish dog with a sense of humor, right?

This plucky chap is channeling the iconography of Rosie the Riveter to support his cause. (The cause might also be hawking T-shirts.)

With his stately eyes and raffish stubble, this pro-Scotland pooch is a dead ringer for the independence warrior Sean Connery.

This staunchly Scottish Corgi will likely not be receiving any invites for afternoon tea and biscuits with Queen Elizabeth’s fabled Corgi clan.

The voting slip might say, “Yes,” but the sad eyes on his hound suggest he has many valid fears about the sustainability of an independent Scotland.
