The Whole Truth....

Roxy loves to carry stuff around....squeaky stuff is her favourite--but anything will do.

So Roxy was chosen to hold the flag for Australia Day.

Some of you commented on her holding the flag.
Apparently, Roxy likes to hold anything EXCEPT the flag.
 The picture taken was a set up.
Some of you may have noticed the blurry fingers as SHE tried to take the picture before Roxy dropped the flag. (Yet, again.)


  1. And there we all were, thinking Roxy was such a proud, flag waving Australian patriot.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (who is also wondering about Daisy and Bella's view on Scottish independence….)

  2. BOL! Maybe she needs an Australia flag squeaky toy!

  3. LOL Roxy you crack us up. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Mom says that it's very hard to get us to "hold" - even for tons of treats! You did good, Roxy!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  5. Put a squeaky in it next year and she will never put it down! Lee and Phod

  6. HEY.... That is not RIGHT... Roxy your mom tried to make your NOSE a Squeaky Toy!!! Butt I love the picture of you holding the Flag... and holding all your Squeaky TOYS.. Love you, 87 Bazillion times over. YOUR Ernie... who would never Tweak your Beak.

  7. Blurry fingers or no blurry fingers, we LOVE that picture! Didn't know Australia day is on d same day as our Indian republic day.
    Hope your friend is recovering well from surgery.
    Ginger, Buddy n Shadow

  8. Kaci always parades around the house with something in her mouth. She should have been named Toyinmouth.

  9. ha! we didn't notice a thing until you pointed it out Daisy! maybe Roxy has a little bit of Scottie in her? She like to do things, but only when it's her idea, not when she's told to? Mum says that sure sounds familiar to her!

  10. Well done Roxy, besides don't you just hate set ups, they do that to me all the time. Think you deserve a cookie for helping them out.

  11. Of course she's not going to hold the photo prop! That would be too easy!

  12. Bravo to HER that was quick finger work for sure. Roxy might be 1/8 feline...
    we tote too when it benefits us and we have short attention spans. Mom says i have the attention span of a flea.
    MOL hugs madi your bfff

  13. Roxy was just free-styling!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. We wouldn't have noticed the blurry fingers on the side of the picture if you didn't say anything. Looks like you were waving the flag.

  15. BOL, it was a good try Roxy! Now, why do us dogs always do anything but what they want us to do, hmmmmm.....

  16. we loves that picture and i don't finks we would have even noticed those fingers if yours mom wouldn't have pointed it out to us, maybe roxy is afeared of getting poked in the eye.

  17. Didn't see them until you told us, guess Roxy only wants to hold her stuffs, unless there is a treat!

  18. Hey Roxy!
    Wow, I like carrying toys too! Gotta keep 'em right where they can't get away. Now that flag is cool, but definitely not a toy so I can see your confusion. BOL Looks like SHE worked it out and the pix are all adorable!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  19. Been there done That Roxy. They just expect us to do this stuffs

  20. scotsmad....
    Well!! Perhaps Roxy knows that flags are not dog toys!! Hee, hee, hee ;op

  21. We hadn't noticed the blurry fingers. Our mom is a Photoshop wiz and would have erased those fingers.

  22. Good job, Roxy, you gotta keep those humans on their toes!

  23. You're mum should have put a squeaker on it. I never noticed the fingers until they were pointed out......or until your mum threw you under the bus pointing out you can't hold a flag.

    Aroo to you,

  24. BOL! We love finding out what really goes on behind the scenes.
    Wally & Sammy

  25. We would have never known! We still think it has to be pretty hard to hold such a tiny stick in your mouth and thing you did a bang up job!

  26. Well, at least it isn't Photoshopped. Better that than digitally edited.

  27. No worries, Max would have eaten da flag! Great job Roxy!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  28. The humans can't have it all their way Roxy! BOL! Maybe next time she could smear some peanut paste on that stick!!

    PeeS: Baking away here - don't need to fire up the oven - just put the pizza on a tray outside for a while !! ;-)

  29. I don't blame you for objecting, Roxy! SHE is squeezing your mouth shut. Horrible.
