I was born when Halley’s Comet last appeared overhead and named accordingly. Since then, I've become a writer, artist, and columnist. In addition to Open Salon, my work appears frequently in The Huffington Post, All Things Healing, Gender Across Borders: A Global Feminist Blog, and several other publications. I blog daily at my site HayleysComments.com I recently published my first book, "I Know Why They Call a Shell a Shell." The book is about domestic violence, a topic that I am very vocal about. It chronicles my journey away from tumultuous love affairs by weaving stories of her past with stories from literature, music, and visual art of both modern and classical significance.

Meet Ginger! Our Second Rescue Animal of the Week!

Rate: 1 Flag



 Meet Ginger or Ginger Pye as mom, Kathy Knox, lovingly calls her. Ginger was rescued with her sister Gracie. The two sisters were found living on the streets of Houston, Texas.

When Ginger and Gracie came home, it was already a full house and they were greeted by two other rescue dogs, Sparky and Rosie and several feral cats. Sadly, a few of the dogs have since passed away, but Ginger is still a happy girl and loves playing with her kitty friends. Every morning, first thing, Ginger goes to the patio door to see if the cats are there.

Though Ginger is getting older, she is still very energetic and sometimes acts like a puppy! She loves to go for walks.

Ginger is definitely a mixed breed, and though mom doesn't know for sure, she suspects she might be a corgi mix with probably a little chow because she has black markings on her tongue. Ginger is a real sweetheart.


Her mom describes her as funny and quirky and loved by all who meet her. Ginger doesn't only love socializing with dogs and cats. She even made friends with a calf when she and mom visited a local farm!
