VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Roxie the boxer wasn’t planning to get herself in the newspaper and on television, she was just having a snack — of seven corncob halves. Unfortunately one of them got lodged in her intestine. Sounds like a grim story, but it has a sweet ending thanks to a national charity which raised funds to pay for Roxie’s surgery at BluePearl in Virginia Beach.
