In September, 2006, Suni and Elicia were an internationally ranked agility team. For more than a decade, they could be seen competing on nationally televised events such as the ESPN GREAT OUTDOORS GAMES, the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge, and many other top agility venues.
One weekend they were competing and winning. The next weekend Suni Was fighting for her life. The diagnosis was Hemangiosarcoma. She was given one to four weeks to live.
A fighter to the end, Suni succumbed to the disease three months later. She was the reigning 2006 AKC 16" National Champion. Suni leaves behind a legacy of competitive excellence and a following of supporters and admirers unrivalved in the sport of agility.
The NCCF is a nationwide, contribution funded, non profit corporation dedicated to finding improved diagnostic methods to detect cancer in dogs at an early stage, better treatment for dogs with cancer and ultimately, a cure for canine cancer.
The Suni Fund donations go directly to the NCCF's Hemangiosarcoma research.
