The other day the OP Pack noticed and remarked on Roxy's feet.
Roxy's feet are unique to say the least.
When she's resting, she turns out her right front leg at a funny angle.
At times it look like it's on backwards.
People always asked if she had rickets or if it was broken.
As she was surrendered to the pound as a small puppy, we don't know if she had rickets.
Could be, in a litter of 12 pups, maybe she didn't have growing room.
She also has funny back feet. When SITTING, she sometimes has both out behind her, either straight as in this picture or crossed.
Or, she rests on her toes.
Usually, there is at least one leg flung out backwards.
Getting her to SIT on command is a lottery--you never know what she'll do. She slowly lowers her back end into any one of her crazy positions.
It is always a talking point wherever we go.
The VET said it is just a Roxyism and to watch her weight as arthritis is a possibility in the future.
Whatever the cause.....
it does not slow her down or hinder her in any way!
we think you are just Perfect!
Luv Eileen and Annie xx
Maybe she is just double jointed. We had noticed that before too but if she is happy and it doesn't bother her...then all is good and it sure doesn't slow her down at all :)ReplyDelete
We never noticed before. We think roxy is talented and can do fancy footwork.ReplyDelete
But a very charming Roxyism it is. LOL we love all the different positions. Have a serene Sunday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
What a unique girl! My peep says she one of her furends has a dog with feet much like Roxy's... His name is Billy was a rescue and his vet said his feet were like that 'cos he's a mix of different breeds...ReplyDelete
We think Roxy's feet are PAWfect.... whichever way they point - they make up the gorgeousness that IS Roxy!!!ReplyDelete

We agree, Roxy is just pawfect! Every dog has some uniqueness about them, and this is Roxy's. We love you Roxy and you just keep laying and standing and sitting anyway you wanna!ReplyDelete

Woof! Woof! Hidden talent. Happy SUNDAY. Lots of Golden Woofs, SugarReplyDelete
Heeheehee, maybe it's Roxy showing off so people talk about her, but we bet it's like the song, "When Your Strange", cause all we doggies are! Barharhar. Bet Ernie likes it!ReplyDelete

BOL - growing up I had sort of that same thing going on, and then my folks realized I was just double jointed. I wonder if pups can be that same way?ReplyDelete
Well that just makes you one SPECHULLS girl, we fink you have bootiful tootsies :) xx00xxReplyDelete
Mollie and Alfie
We think that God just made you unique Roxy and thats what is so special about you!! We like the roxyism!!ReplyDelete
Jazzi and Addi
We have noticed Miss Roxy's foot BUTT would never dare ask as we didn't want to appear rude and we could tell from all the pics taken at the various parks and lakes you visit that it most certainly does not slow her down *BOL*ReplyDelete
Rock on Roxy!!
Wally & Sammy
ROXY... I (YOUR ERNIE) think your feet are GORGEOUS.ReplyDelete
Guess WHAT? I do the same thing with MY Right foot when I am sitting or standing!! When MY mom noticed it... she asked My Dogtor and he said it is just somethingy I like to do... he said I am RIGHT PAWED.
I think it is just another reason that WE Belong TOGETHER!!!
All of your pictures are SUPER BEAUTIFUL today. I am SWOONING over them.

I noticed the odd angle of Roxy's front foot too, but as you said, it never seemed to slow her down, so I figured there was nothing to it. I'd never noticed the back legs. Special feet and legs for a special girl!ReplyDelete
mebbe her legs were just built like that.. and if it doesn't slow her down.. it should not be causing her pain. Maybe she should be called Flexi Sexy Roxy :DReplyDelete
I was wondering the same thing about Roxy's paws. But she seems perfect to me :)ReplyDelete
The one problem with rescues is that you don't have a good history. The vet didn't trust my Mexican papers and gave me all the shots again. Kaci's said she was born Feb 30. You have to take us as we are.ReplyDelete
I adore your foots Roxy, they is simply beautiful.ReplyDelete
Roxy, we sure do love your quirky legs, you are gorgeous all the same!ReplyDelete
Whatever the cause, Roxy is still super adorable!ReplyDelete
Hi there Roxy,ReplyDelete
We think you are simply adorable. Yay!

Thank you for the explanation - we were worried she hurt herself or something. Maybe she is double jointed or something. Lightning usually lies down with his two back legs out too. As long as it doesn't stop her, all is good.ReplyDelete

Oh, I've always noticed your feeties, butts like your dogtor, I just knew they were Roxyism's cause you were always the Fastest doggie I've ever seen!!! I thinks they're FABulous gurl!ReplyDelete
I've never realised about you feet Roxy! As long as the vet says everything is fine, then I am happy! Roxyism is very cool and unique, because you're the only dog who can have it!ReplyDelete
Have a super week!
She is unique and special and I love how she's a free spirit, running and chasing and playing.ReplyDelete
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
Don't worry Roxy, we're all a little different. Our Tess has crazy legs. They aren't straight and they make her walk funny, but boy can she ever run! She's out fastest runner. Mom says her legs were made for running not walking. For now she's fine but the doctor says that in another year she may have some arthritis so we're starting her on fish oil and glucosamine to make sure she doesn't hurt.ReplyDelete

Doesn't matter, Ernie is still gonna love her the same and so will we! We're just trying to get caught up on our bloggy pals before the next Phase of the Painting Project begins on Tuesday!ReplyDelete

Our Gemi had the bow legs too. We think it is charming! Another way to be unique. Lee and PhodReplyDelete
Your feets make you a very special girl, Roxy! We like that about you!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
You girls are right and we made an oopsie! There are only 30 days in April and we've made the correction. Thank you so much for noticing!Delete
Love ya lots
Mitch and Molly
Roxy however your feet go it sure hasn't made you any slower. I've seen those pictures of you running and you sure can fly.ReplyDelete
How interesting! Makes her more unique. As long as she isn't in pain and it doesn't stop her! Have a great Sunday!ReplyDelete
We call that "knuckled over" in the Doxie world. If it doesn't both you, it just makes you special, Roxy!ReplyDelete
Loving the Roxyisms! Awesome!ReplyDelete
Hey, Roxy, I Rory, have a funny right foot which is a bit pigeon toed so maybe funny feet are an Aussie thing hehe. We love ya just the way you are sweetie pie. No worries, and love, Stella and RoryReplyDelete
Roxy do you hear your mom telling the world about your feets!! Well although your front one is funny, we do the exact same thing with the back legs and feetsReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
I love your paws, sweet Roxy! They're so cute, and they obviously work beautifully!ReplyDelete
Roxy...you are always running like the wind...so evidently your paws have powers!!ReplyDelete
Hugs your BFFF
Roxyism, I like that!!!ReplyDelete
We did notice but didn't say anything because we're a pack of special needs and really don't think much about "special" features! You're cute Roxy, regardless of what your feet look like.ReplyDelete
Don't worry about it Roxy - Blueberry has funny little ways she sits too (mostly cause of her bad hips and knee). It just means you have extra character!! :)ReplyDelete
Roxy your feet look fine, and you can get around ok, so no problem.ReplyDelete
That is Roxy and I love you for just being Roxy!!!ReplyDelete
Her spots more than make up for crazy feet! (Both feet behind make her look like a Corgi!)ReplyDelete
She's a ballerina...nice turnout ...ReplyDelete
