One pampered pooch: PR guru Roxy Jacenko spends $1315 on a Prada collar and lead for her beloved dog Oreo… as the tiny Pomeranian goes into surgery following a knee injury
She’s the PR guru who is known to splash out when it comes to designer goods.
And Roxy Jacenko did just that on Wednesday, as she snapped up a gorgeous $1315 Prada ensemble – not for herself, but for her beloved pet pooch, Oreo.
The 40-year-old shared a picture of the beautiful Prada collar – known to be worth $595 – and matching $720 lead on her Instagram page.

‘Oreo is going to be very posh with this new lead!’ she wrote beside the snap.
But it’s a bittersweet purchase for Roxy, who later told Daily Mail Australia that she only bought the products to ‘cheer up’ the pup – and herself – as her fluffy companion was heading in for knee surgery the following day after injuring his leg.
‘He has been on human strength painkillers awaiting surgery. He will go in on Thursday,’ she said.
She said that her children, Pixie and Hunter, are ‘very upset’, adding: ‘Hunty even gave Oreo one of his “blankies” to make him feel better.’
It will take Oreo six weeks to recover from the surgery.

Roxy is known for her love of designer items, with Oreo regularly seen with upmarket accessories.
Previously, the pup was seen wearing a Louis Vuitton Baxter leash, which is worth $550.
Roxy recently hit headlines after facing backlash over purchasing an $84,500 black Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class for her nine-year-old daughter, Pixie.
And on Friday, Roxy Jacenko hit back at her critics, saying she bought the car for her young daughter because of its ‘extra safety features’.

She pointed out that obviously her daughter ‘doesn’t drive the car’.
‘It’s of utmost importance to me that both she and her brother Hunter travel safely on the roads when going to and from school so I purchased a car for her,’ she told News.com.au
‘Obviously she doesn’t drive it, she is driven in it as is her brother to and from school and for any activities.’
She added: ‘Given the number of fatalities on our roads their safety is so important so if it means buying a car that has extra safety features that’s what I’ll do.’
Big debut: On Thursday, Roxy shared a photo of the black Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class to Instagram and wrote: ‘Visits today from fineautofinishing for Pixie’s car’
