Thanks for asking how I am dear Mariann! I am doing fine, but still missing my mom very much who died in March...
Glad your back, Marina. We missed you!
All signed, Anneke, Thank you once again for summing all these up for us. I love your page!! I told Randy G. about your page. He says he has talked to you. If we save one animal it's worth it too me!
Hi, Monika, how are you?
Going through now Anneke!
A big hug to all our wonderful members !!
I'm so glad to be back with all you wonderful ladies ~ I have so missed you all! I have signed all petitions Anneke for 14/15/17/18 November. My computer is going really slow today so it has been taking a long time to do! I will try and pop back later to do some more but I will definitely be back tomorrow to try and catch up on all those I have missed and get back on top again!
Thanks Anneke for all the hard work you do on here ~ it's good to get so many petitions and letters done in one fair swoop! x
I do so hope that you are feeling so much better today Mariann ~ I have been thinking of you whilst I was away and I note that you have been having radiation treatment, it must take so much out of you - please take care and look after yourself Mariann! x
Love you All
Anneke, Thanks for all you do for me. I hope you didn't get scammed by that woman.

Thank you, Anneke, I wish there was something you could do. I am sick and tired of being in pain. The only thing I look forward to is this thread. At least my signature counts.
http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/3674786 thank you all so much for signing and sharing, that's the only way to try and realize victories for the animals.. Mariann, I feel hopelessly inadequate, being unable to do anything about your suffering: we just hope this last treatment will be planned very soon...
I am hurting so bad. I have one more treatment today. Then I have a PET scan on Dec. 6th. I have signed and will send out the protest letters. Thanks for all you do, Sweetheart!
Anneke! I am signing and I have reposted some in group threads! Thank you everyone for your dedication to animals.
I am done! Thank you, Anneke, I try hard to keep up on these issues. Animal cruelty is a passion of mine. I wish for a world with no cruelty.
I am so sorry I missed yesterday. I had radiation and my Mom had chemo. Bad day! I am all caught up.Thanks for all you do! I mean everyone!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Peace & All My Love To You,
All done Anneke ! Thanks
I am all caught up. I am not feeling to well. Thank you for your kind words. You ladies mean a lot too me. I love you.

I'm all done for today, Thank you Anneke and Thank you also for your kind words...you are so lovely. Hope you have A Lovely Evening x
Mariann...I do hope that you are OK, you have usually been here and completed them all before me so I am concerned that you may be feeling very bad at the moment...I do hope that this isn't the case! Thinking of you and Take Care As Always x
All caught up and up to date again Anneke. I've not had a chance to get online until today so I had a few days to catch up with but all done now, thank goodness. I feel so much better when I've done them all! Thanks so much Dear Anneke x
Mariann, I am so sorry that you have had such a bad few days lately, having to spend so much time at the cancer centre and then being in so much pain, my heart goes out to you my dear friend as you are such a lovely, caring person and you don't deserve this terrible suffering! On top of all this you then have to drive in the snow, I do so that hope you had a safe journey and that your treatment has gone well today! Please Take Care Dear Mariann, we are all here for you and support you with all our hearts! Sending Love to you, Anneke, Monika, Sylvie and everyone on here, hope the rest of the week is a good one for you all! xxxx
I have treatment this morning. It's snowing here. I don't like to drive in it. Oh well. Wishing you all a great day.
Thank you all for your kind words. Your caring means the world to me. My online Family means so much to me. I love you all.
I am all done!!
Thank you everyone for everything. Soon up to date Anneke
Mariann, dear, stay strong, we are here for you, always. YOU ARE NOT ALONE WITH YOUR PAIN...
I am all caught up! I had a very bad day. I was at the cancer center from 6am until 3pm. I am hurting so bad. No matter how bad I feel, I can't let these animals down. Thank you Anneke and Marina for all your positive thoughts and comments. I appreciate all you do. You both make me feel like I am cared for. Thanks so much.
Thanks Anneke, All Done x
I am done! Thank you!
All done for 6th November, hope you are well and have a lovely day today Anneke. Thank you x
Hope you are feeling well too Mariann, Sending All my Love and Best Wishes to you both xx
Thank you, Marina and Annke. I appreciate everything. You are so dear to me. I have found true friendship in you both. I can't stress enough what that means too me. God Bless You.
Thank you Anneke, 4/5 November all done and signed. x
In response to what you said Mariann, I am annoyed that allowances are not made for people with disabilities such as yourself who are, understandably, unable to queue for long periods of time for food, it is so disgusting that more isn't done to help in such situations! I hate the thought of you not getting what you are entitled to because of a failing system - it really saddens me and makes me sick! As Anneke has already said, if there is anything at all we can do to help you Mariann we will - just let us know! In the meantime, please take care as always and I do hope your treatment has gone well!
Love to everyone on here. x
Thank you all for help. I hope it works but I am not holding my breath. Everything is out of my control. I can't stand in a line for food because I walk with a cane. I am disabled and for me it's hard. I have treatment this morning. I am all caught up.
Today's petitions are all done Anneke including yours Mariann for the reinstating of food stamps ~ I do hope this succeeds as I am concerned for your weight Mariann ~ Please Take Care of yourself.
Everyone have a lovely Sunday xxxx See you tomorrow x
Marina I know how you feel. Anneke and Monika between them keep us all very busy and offer hope to the voiceless innocents that we all care so passionately about.
For the first time ever we have had some storm damage - a Gibbon roof and the pigs' igloo style house. Animals all safe thankfully!
Mariann - what next? You have certainly got a lot to endure.
You are all terrific...! Happy to know you all....Will post this tomorrow in the list:http://forcechange.com/90313/reinstate-food-stamp-benefits/
Mariann would you please post the food stamps link ! I'd like to sign but have no time to search it. Thanks!
I have a favor too ask. Would you please go to Forcechange and sign to reinstate my food stamps? I would appreciate it dearly. I got a huge cut and can't afford to eat. I weigh 92lbs and my Doc wants me too gain weight. How? I want to thank you in advance. I know your my friends.
The only thing that makes me feel like I am somebody is signing these petitions. It's an honor to stand with you all and fight.
Yippee I'm all caught up at last I've been so busy lately and not had a chance to keep on top but now they're all done and up to date ~ I feel like my eyes are boggling right out of my head at the moment! So I don't know how you do it Mariann, going through alll your treatments, looking after your dear mom and at the same time not feeling very well at times ~ you are a Super Woman Mariann!!
Thanks Anneke for keeping us all on our toes and doing so much for the animals and that goes for you too Monika~ you both work so very hard! You are all Amazing, inspirational ladies in this group!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend ~ you all deserve it!
Done Anneke! And as usual some of the petitions moved into group topics and shared in the groups I host
All the best for your treatment Maiann!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I have another treatment this morning plus two Doc appointments. I have finished all these and a couple more.
Thanks to everyone who signs these. Thank you, Anneke, for always keeping us up on everything.
I am done!! See you tomorrow.
I have just finished all the petitions. Thank you all for your concern. My treatment went fine. Running back and forth taking care of my Mom too.
I hope you all have a very nice day.
Finished the last 2 days of your list Anneke. Shared some in our group and other groups I host. THANKS !
Good luck with your treatment this morning Mariann!
I have treatment this morning. I had to stop by and sign all these petitions. I don't like to be behind. Thanks for all you do.
I am done! Finished three days of petitions. I have been busy taking care of my Mother. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Everything is appreciated!
Anneke I do October 24 and 25 now!
Wish all of you a nice weekend!
Well - have been through them all now. Caught up I think and re-posted some.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
My Mother has shingles now!! Her hair is almost gone! Thank you all for caring. I am trying so hard to keep it together. I need this group bad. It helps me take my mind off of everything that is going on in my life. A BIG thank you for that. If I can save one animal, I feel great!! You ladies mean so much too me. Thank you all for my

Your grandaughter is so beautiful Mariann ~ A Wonderful, Precious new life. I am so happy for you and your family Mariann and I know she will bring you all so much joy! I am sure your mother is over the moon with the new addition, although I do feel for her now that her hair has started to fall out but it will soon grow back though Mariann.
My love goes out to all of you xx
Thank you for your nice comments on my new granddaughter. I had trouble with one petition. The one from change, I think it was the third one down. I couldn't click on the link so I tried to enter it manualy. It won't work. Done with the rest anyway.
Congratulations. I still remember the day my grand-daughter came home. It was one of the happiest days of my life. She is now a junior in high school. Enjoy every moment.
Here is my new Granddaughter! I have finished all these!! Thank you everyone for all you kind words. My Mothers hair is falling out! I feel so sorry for her. I know how she feels.
Thanks Sylvie ~ I have been through the petitions and they have all already been signed. Thanks for posting and for caring. Take Care x
"Only 3,800 signatures on this petition, please share. The vote is on Thursday and we need as many as possible. Please see the recent post on In Memory of Vucko regarding a massacre in Bosnia that took place yesterday. This is what will happen to all the strays! http://inmemoryofvucko.org/2013/10/21/massacre-of-stray-dogs-in-kalinovik-bosnia/
Soon up to date Anneke...
Best wishes for you and your mom Mariann.
Completed all petitions for 18/20/21 October today and sent protest letter: Phillipinnes 2013. Only a few failed to be delivered. Thanks Anneke and Mariann ~ Blackie is doing amazingly well, the vet is shocked at how well he is walking after the operation last Monday! He is a strong dog but he is also strong in spirit
Wishing you Anneke, Mariann and Monika a great week ahead.
Love you all Dear Friends xx

Thanks so much Anneke ~ finally finished all of 6th, 7th and 8th October's petitions and protest letters! It took all afternoon but I got there in the end!
I've been so busy over the weekend looking after my grandchildren, one legged seagull chick, disabled pet pigeon and my beautiful labrador 'Blackie' who is currently very lame and needing an operation next Monday I know he'll be fine though as he overcame an agressive cancer more than two years ago so I have faith that God will take care of him for me, just like he did then!
I love all of you in this group - all so caring and committed to the animals ~ you are all brilliant!Take Care Mariann, hope your treatment has gone well ~ you keep up with these petitions amazingly well! xx

I finished them all. I have treatment this morning. My love to you all!! Have a wonderful day.
we are supposed to be free in the US! Yeah, right!! I sent John B an email. How dare they play with someone's life.
http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/3653849 thank you Jan and Mariann! Looks like a third world country, honestly (no offence...) This John Boehner and the Tea Party should vanish from this earth, what a relief that would be... thepetitionsite.com didn't show me the newest petitions anymore, today it's the same issue, that's why the lists are getting irregular in length, sorry. Mailed the help sector, and Eric: today I tried Zen...Wait and see..Try to enjoy this Monday!
WOW!! What a list! I finally finished!! I start my treatment tomorrow. My Mother is very sick. Because of the government shut down she can't get the clinical research drug. Pray for her. Wishing you all a very nice day!!
Caught up! Thank you Anneke for posting all these. I have signed all and reposted some.
All Done. Thanks Anneke...Hope you have a relaxing Sunday and that goes for you too Mariann xx

Love to you Anneke, Mariann, Kathy and everyone on here who works so hard to make a difference to the animals that so desperately need our help - you are all such wonderful people
All emails sent.
Thanks Anneke A
http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/3652132 You're all awesome people! Thank you so much! Thanks Marina, for even taking the effort to personalize these important letters, this means a lot!!! Carmen Arsene from Romania doesn't give up either, no matter how much she feels hurt inside !
The facts are, Live is Live, regardless of what 'organic overcoat' god has given it.
It is a human defect in perception that gives man the delusional mind set that allows him/her to justify that certain lives are worth less then others lives.
Is it not hypocritical to sit in judgment and declare that it's perfectly acceptable to murder some of gods creature such as cows, chickens, pigs etc etc. But not other animals, all based purely on the organic overcoat in which the animal had no choice but to be born in?!?
Please... think about this quote by Mark Twain.
"The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creatures that cannot."
~Mark Twain, What Is Man, 1906

I have a few emails too send out yet. I can't beleive all this abuse is still going on. Enough is Enough! The eating of cats and dogs is beyond me. If they want meat, there is enough cows, chickens, pigs and other sources of meat. It breaks my heart to look at my cat and think people are eating them!! Thanks for all you do, sweetheart. Marina it makes me sick too. You both are angels.
I have just completed all the petitions for October 1st and sent personalised protest letters to 91 recipients regarding the Bosnia October 5th deadline for changing the existing law to legalise the killing of strays! What's the world coming to...Romania and now Bosnia!!!
I have also sent personally adapted protest letters to all the Korean Government officials and Korea's Official Site urging them to Stop the horrific dog and cat consumption! I will send further letters tomorrow to the many other email addresses provided to try and get the message home as best I can...those poor dogs suffering so much torture and fear, never experiencing a home, comfort or love makes me so very very sad!!
I will catch up with Oct 2nd tomorrow and hopefully get Oct 3rd done too! Take Care Anneke and, once again, thank you so much for all that you do xx
29th & 30th September all done Anneke, Take Care and Thank you x
Take Good Care you too Mariann - keep positive and strong x
I finished! Thank you for the nice cards you have sent me. Two old fractures and one new one. I am taking aspirin 325mg for the stroke. I feel pretty good. Thanks for always keeping me busy.
I am home!! YEAH! I had a small stroke, no complications. I am so happy to be home. Thank you, Anneke and Mariana for all your kind words.
I am so upset about Romania and the other countries. It makes me sick. How could someone kill or abuse animals that are so innocent. They belong here the same as we do. I hope bad things happen to anyone who harms an animal. Humans are the mean ones.
I hope you both enjoy your weekend. I have finished all the petitions.
Thanks Anneke, all done for 27th September. Have a nice weekend Anneke and Mariann, love to you both xx
Thank you Dear Anneke, all petitions and letters now completed for 24/25/26 September. I did some yesterday and finished them all off today. So very disappointed and devastated that the court went against the poor stray dogs in Romania....how they murder and bring a premature end to these poor innocent lives I will never know!
Take Care Anneke and thank you for the all the hard work you do for the animals every single day x
Love to you too Mariann, hope you are out of hospital soon x
http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/3647460 thank you Sara and Mariann! Just too great for words Mariann! Still thinking of animals! Take good care, even in the hospital... Devastating news from the Const.Court, Bucharest,Romania. We lost. The mass-killing is allowed (it's no euthanasia...) What a barbaric, evil, vile country, we hate those in power! BUT PLEASE DON"T FORGET TO SUPPORT IN WHATEVER WAY THE DOG RESCUERS IN THIS COUNTRY!!! They are trying DAY AND NIGHT to get these sentient, sweet-natured dogs and puppies from the streets, to bring them in safety, private 'shelters' in Romania, or households, fenced gardens, you name it. There is a link under ===news..= but there are many of them! A Paypal account is very easy to use, but always mark it as being for friends, relatives (free); it's for food, medical care, but also for neutering, because all these backwards, criminal backyard breeders who dump the unwanted dogs and pups on the streets, never had them neutered! Thanks, and have a great day, all!
I am in the hospital. I am trying to keep busy. I am using my son's i-pad. I don't like it. No keyboard. I did three days I missed. All caught up. Thanks for always keeping me up on these and other important issues. I saw on the news that West Hollwood banned fur!! YEAH! I hope everyone follows and does the same. Thanks, Anneke and Marina for all your comments.
I've done all the lists of recent petitions and more, nr. 3. Thanks a lot Anneke.
Thank you Anneke...all done for 22nd & 23rd September. xx
September 20th all done. Thank you Anneke...have a lovely weekend x
You, too, Mariann...Look after yourself x
I have finished two days. The 19th and the 20th. Thanks for every little comment or prayer you have given me. You are angels too me.
I have completed 18th and 19th September petitions and just sent letters to the Romanian Courthouse in defence of Romania's Stray Dogs and also to the authorities against that horrific and cruel festival in Peru....absolutely disgusting! This has upset me a great deal...those poor cats! All Done for the moment anyway! Thanks so much Dear Anneke x
I am so sorry to hear Mariann that you've had to go through a PET scan and that your blood pressure is also currently up! All the overwhelming worry and stress that you have been going through lately will be a massive attributing factor to your BP! Hope they're giving you medication to sort it out!! It's so important to keep calm and as stress free as possible but I know that that this is easier said than done!! Try to though Mariann as best you can and never ever give up believing that things will turn out OK! Love, positive thoughts and prayers to you as Always x
Anneke, the reason they did a PET scan was my BP keeps going up. They thought it was growing. My Bp has been 169/99.
I am done!!
Thank you all for caring. I signed and copied all I could. I hope you have a nice day. Sending you big hugs.
All done Anneke, thanks so much and hope you had a lovely weekend x Everyone is so lovely here with so much respect, concern and love for others, it is so heartwarming to be part of such a wonderful Care2 family! Take Care Anneke, Mariann and Jan - you are all so special...love you all! xxxxx
Two days done. I still have to copy the letter. Thanks for all the well wishes. I have treatment this morning. I hope everyone has a nice day.
Finally I have caught up with you Anneke! Thank you for posting all these petitions and thanks to everyone for signing. Mariann - you are a real animal warrior and I hope you are feeling better. Marina - the animals are lucky to have your support.
I have reposted some petitions as Monika is offline but my efforts do not come anywhere near to Monika and Anneke. Our menagerie is growing and there always seems to be a queue at the door lately!!!
Love to all.
September 15th All Done! Thank you Anneke for all the petitions and the cute pic....Have A Lovely Sunday x You, too, Mariann - have a nice rest today if you can x
This post was modified from its original form on 15 Sep, 6:23
Thanks Dear Anneke, all done for September 13th. Have A Lovely Saturday with your family Anneke and see you again on Sunday. x Hope you have a lovely weekend too Dear Mariann x
I am all caught up. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for all you do.
Thanks Anneke for your lovely comments, it's so satisfying and rewarding to be a part of a team so dedicated to the welfare of innocent, defenceless animals!
I am all caught up today with 11th & 12th September all done! What a great letter in protest of the atrocious 'mass killing of 65,000 stray dogs'...it certainly targeted everything perfectly! I tweeked it ever so slightly for the personal touch but it was worded with immense power and enthusiasm....exactly what is needed against this horrific decision to kill innocent stray dogs and the evil inhumanity that exists in Romania on this topic!
Thanks again Anneke and Take Care x You too Mariann x
I signed them!! Thanks for keeping me up on these important issues. I love all animals.
Thanks Anneke, I have spent the afternoon completing all petitions and protest letters for 9th and 10th September. I have sent personally edited protest letters using the sample letter provided to all the authorities listed regarding the subjects of:- 'Romania's Stray Dogs', 'Investigating San Bernadino Animal Shelter' and 'STOP mass killing dogs, Adopt mass sterilization'. I will do the petitions and letters for 11th September later on after I get the rest of my chores done...so I had better get moving!
Glad to hear Mariann that your Mother is back home now and I am so glad that your treatment went well! Anneke is so right...you deserve the utmost respect for keeping up with all these petitions - you are AMAZING!!! Take Care Mariann and get as much rest as you can!! Sending you and your Mother much Love x
Love and Thanks to you, too, Anneke for All you do! x
Hopefully, will pop back later to say the 11th's is done!
Thank you all for your kind words. My Mother is home. I am so tired. Treatment yesterday went well. I am all caught up.
Thanks for keeping my Mother and I in your thoughts.
Went through the last 3 lists, shared some petitions in groups. Thanks Anneke
Mariann I wish you and your mom the very best and a quick recovery!
All signed and up to date! Thanks Anneke - hope you have a Nice Evening x
I am so pleased Mariann that you Mother is doing a little better and didn't have to go through that uncomfortable, invasive treatment - I hope her improvement continues. I also hope that you, too, Mariann is feeling a little better and that you've finally managed to get some much needed sleep....you so need your rest Dear Mariann. Take Care x
I am all caught up. I have been awake for two days. My Mother is doing a little better. She didn't have to have a tube inserted in her lung. So So Good. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. You Ladies are angels. I appreciate your friendship more than ever.
Anneke, have a safe trip.
Signed. Thank you Anneke for sharing our little stowaway. He has been seen by our vet - I say 'he' - we aren't sure yet! He needs time to settle and recover from his stressful journey before being handled and blood tested. This is not the first as there was one last week DOA at the factory. So Meeko(a) is a little survivor!
http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/3636994 thank you all so much!! Today an extra plea, to share as widely as possible, the 2 urgent petitions, Romania, and the horrific situation for the stray dogs, intensified killings; all in the Facebook link under News; thanks for (signing) and sharing!!!
