Hi dear friends,

My thanks to those of you who've sent me lovely "Arbor Day" greetings, I never heard of that day before and we do not have it here. Sorry if you got nothing from me, forgive please.
Take care and be well.
Love & Peace

NOTED,CARLENE WILL GO BACK AND COMMENT AND SHARE,I LOVE JILL'S NEWS--TY
This is the first time I've asked you to sign a petition, but it seemed to me such a good idea (as well as being rather ironic to be petitioning Care2 themselves LOL). One of my friends, Teresa W, has had the genial idea to ask Care2 to add another cause to the list for Butterfly Credits. This petition is just to get the cause included - presumably Care2 will verify the viability etc of attributing the credits to this cause, to ensure everything is honest and "above board". There is an article today about the cause.
We all get our credits and I've often heard people asking "do they really go to what we intend them to?" - this is one cause where we would be able to SEE the results, and "follow" them, and why it appeals to me.
I hope you, too, will see the merit of Teresa's idea and sign her petition.
Thank-you and big hugs to you all !!
Hi all. It's bright and sunny here today so I am going to be working in my yard. Always lots to do. Please enjoy my latest. Thank you. Hugs, Christeen

Phineas, a lovable family dog, is sentenced to death because he bit a neighbour's child when she fell on the child he lives with and loves.
Please look at this little girl crying. Phineas is her dog and she is saying good bye to him.
Even the family of the girl who was bitten has agreed to help to save Phineas’s life.
A copy from FB page Save Phineas:
March 12, 2013
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Phineas, a male yellow Labrador retriever, has been at our facility since June 22, 2012. In all that time, he has given us no trouble whatsoever. He gets along with everyone he meets and is always grateful for attention. He is obedient and walks well on a leash. When workers let him out for exercise, he enjoys the time and likes to play, especially running after a toy or ball that was thrown. When he had been at the shelter 10-14 days, J.J. Tune, DVM, came out to see the dog and stated he was in good health and of mild temperament. The animal control officer instructed us not to give Phineas any vaccinations, etc. as is our practice, stating he was the city's dog and not the shelter's dog. For a long time, Phineas shared kennel space with another dog (not always the same one) and there were never any problems with them getting along. A couple of months ago the animal control officer ordered us to keep this dog in solitary confinement because the city could be sued if he got injured. Phineas enjoyed the companionship of the other dogs and has been more depressed since having to be alone. It seems inconsistent that they were concerned with this risk of injury when they had ordered he not be protected against exposure to diseases such as distemper, parvo and kennel cough. Those who heard of the dog's situation and came to see him out of concern or curiosity have have been amazed at how nice he is and all have expressed the opinion that this is not a vicious dog and that anything he did must have been provoked or feeling the need to protect himself. Although we at the shelter like dogs and cats or we wouldn't be doing what we do, we realize people come first and in no way would give an endorsement to a pet that would be a danger to society. It is our understanding that if released he would not be going back to the same situation. From our experience with him, Phineas is quite normal, very much fitting the profile of the Labrador retriever which is known for being good- natured and patient. He seldom barks and never in an unfriendly way, has never snapped or growled. Having been a family dog, he has been quiet and depressed with an incarceration that has gone on so very long. The decision is not ours. We were asked to share what we knew of him and were glad to do so.
Again, I am forwarding this from a friend, Les.

Have a great day,
Last week, my sweet rescued dog was gunned down by NYPD for no reason.
My sister and I were walking our three dogs in a public park when two of them started to scuffle with each other. We easily separated them and everyone was calmed down when an NYPD officer came onto the scene. She opened fire on Baby Girl, who wasn't even involved in the fight. Baby Girl was running away from the officer when she was hit.
NYPD killed my dog. No one was in danger until the officer started shooting. She also could have hit me or my sister, the residents who live near the park, or the kids who were playing basketball just a few feet away. My sister, a retired NYPD cop, identified herself and told the officer it was under control. I pleaded with the officer to stop shooting, but she just kept yelling at us to stay away from our own dogs.
When it was over, my sister and I weren't allowed to leave, even though we didn't know where Baby Girl was since she'd run away from the gunfire. The cops told us that they didn't know her whereabouts, but when we asked some neighborhood kids to help us find her, they found my dog lying in puddles of her own blood in a cage in the back of a police vehicle.
My brother arrived to rush her to a vet. The police offered to escort him and led him to a facility where there wasn't even a vet on duty. He had to carry Baby Girl to a different vet's office where she finally received care more than an hour after she'd been shot. She was unable to recover from her injuries and died five days later.
NYPD has not reached out to me. They've only told reporters that this is under investigation. That's not good enough. The officer who open fired in a park needs to be fired from the police force. I do not feel safe with her on the streets. In addition, NYPD needs to take immediate action to make sure this never happens again. They need to adopt a policy that says officers are not allowed to use deadly force on companion animals and they need to train their officers on how to handle dog-related incidents without putting people or pets in danger.
Police departments across the country are strengthening their policies and training to stop officers from shooting dogs and putting pet owners at risk. Colorado and Texas are even considering legislation that would require training on dog encounters for officers across the state. How many more pets need to die before NYPD starts protecting us and stops shooting our companions?

For this news that came to my facebook wall: The Wicca pitbull Christos beside his master. Was slaughtered in Canada despite the requests of the owner to keep her alive. Montreal's new law is zero tolerance for animals that may be considered dangerous, which require no evidence in the case, and regardless of whether mild or severe was what caused the animal.

I'm writing to you today to ask you to help me reach 100,000 signatures by Thursday morning, the time by which we'll be presenting the petition. Over 83,000 signatures in one week is an impressive feat, but 100,000 signatures is that much better!

Please do sign and fwd
Without eyes, his sexual member ripped with a knife and burned on the back was located in Colonia Gomez Morin (Ensenada Baja California Mexico) an stray dog that was tortured by "humans".
Hector Manuel Lopez Carrillo the person in charge of Canine Care Center explained that the dog is a stray, has no name, this dog that one time was white was found by staff of the center in the worst conditions. They indignantly reported the event due to the cruelty that this animal was attacked with.
The dog was on the main street of Colonia Gomez Morin, awaiting death, blind and very hurt, when they picked him up and moved him to the center, where he is since Monday.
This is the first time an animal is detected in these conditions, with obvious marks of torture, by one or more people who "apparently" gouged out his eyes, burned his back with a cigarette lighter and finally removed his penis with a knife or stabs.
The person in charge said that it is the first time that the center has reached an animal with such traces of torture.
He added that they daily collect injured animals and in poor condition because they are sick or have been run/hit by cars, but in this case the evidence of torture, made ââthe drivers to see the dog and report the matter to the Director of Medical Services.
This Tuesday they even doubted if it was better to put him to sleep or attempt to rescue, but he is suffering a lot and could be very difficult to rehabilitate without pain, plus he is completely blind.
He disclosed that there had been cases of animal in bad conditions but not that tortured, he acknowledged that unfortunately there is no law to protect them. Even when citizens have animals in an abusive situation, there is no law that obligates them to surrender their pets. If the dogs are in their property, the rescue cannot enter by force because their work is on the street. PLEASE HELP ANGELITO SIGNING THIS PETITION because stray dogs such as Angelito deserve to be treated with respect. Whoever did this to him has to pay! This is such a horrible crime! Angelito is an innocent creature. The government needs to be severe with this kind of crimes!
