Rachel Page ElliottPosted: April 4, 2009
|FromOne of the dog world’s most respected and beloved canine experts, Rachel Page Elliott, passed away peacefully at home last week at the age of 96. “Pagey,” as she preferred to be called, was enjoying life on the farm she had lived on for the past 63 years, surrounded by her family, friends and animals, right up to the end of her life.In the dog world she is best known for her ground breaking research on canine structure and movement immortalized in her Dogsteps – What to Look for in a Dog DVD. Her other works include: The Golden Retriever – Structure, Movement and Use DVD; Canine Cineradiography DVD; and her just-published memoir, of which Dogwise Publishing is very proud, From Hoofbeats to Dogsteps – A Life of Listening and Learning from Animals. Unfortunately her classic book, The New Dogsteps, is currently unavailable as it’s publisher is mulling over whether to undertake an additional printing.
A celebration of the life of Rachel Page Elliott will be held 2pm, Friday, March 27, 2009 at the First Parish Church (Unitarian) in Concord, Massachusetts. Friends of Pagey and dog lovers are invited to attend. The family invites all to sign the Guest Book and add your comments and tributes for all to enjoy.
Thanks from all of us at Dogwise.
