We lost one of the good ones, today

The world of rescue lost a very special person today. Janet DeCraene, founder of Cocker Spaniel Resources passed away this morning. The day we first met Jan is the day that we first met our Ellie. Jan came to do our home visit when we adopted Ellie. Years later, after EllieBellie Project sent off that first $300 donation to Cocker Spaniel Resources in memory of Ellie, we received such a heartfelt thank you note from Jan and CSR. Jan said she remembered the day she brought Ellie into our lives, and that they felt blessed to receive our gift. Last year when Pat and I were able to assist with a few transports for CSR, it was Jan who would coordinate the rides.
In CSR’s post about Jan today, they wrote about all the hundreds of dogs and cats that Jan had helped rescue over the years, and how they would all be waiting to greet her as she crossed over the rainbow bridge. Knowing Ellie, and how determined she could be, I’m pretty sure she had pushed her way to the front of the line to welcome Jan home, today.cropped-image1.jpeg
