I am Rox. Roxanne. Miss Darling. Roxy. Co-caregiver to Lexi, one of the luckieset dogs around. A person happily living my dream life come true in Hawaiʻi.
And still facing the usual challenges of keeping clients happy, sorting out the occasional temper burst with my guy (mine or his), doing what it takes to get those bills paid — you know the sort of things that are just part of a normal life.
But most every day that I am here in Hawaii, I go to the beach to walk and swim with our dog Lexi, and Secret Cameraman comes along so we can share it with you. (Other days I am on the road or we do something special here in Hawaii!)
