Yesterday, we had a tragedy happen at the trial. One of our fellow competitors collapsed, other medically trained competitors  performed CPR until emergency services arrived. The firefighters and paramedics continued with CPR and were still doing CPR when they took Tina to hospital.  Later we got the sad news that Tina didn't make it.

Tina - first place finish at the 2011 Ontario Regional Championship

I didn't know Tina very well but she was a great presence around agility trials. She ran four Australian Shepherds; along with her husband those dogs were her life. Tina was always cheerful and great fun. She was looking forward to a vacation down east following Nationals.

I always loved watching Tina run, she communicated so well with her dogs. She loved the agility game, she will be sadly missed. You go, girl!


  1. How sad. We pray for her family.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. How sad. Life is so short, and you just never know....

  3. I'm sorry to hear about Tina. Such sad news for everyone who does agility. Not really sure what to say -- I'm never good at words. I am glad that she was able to do a sport she really loved up until the end. May God be with Tina's husband and family and friends during this time of need.

  4. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about her. Tina sounded such a lovely lady, and at least she collapsed doing something she loved with her dogs that she lived for.

  5. So so sad. She was doing the things she loved the most surrounded by all those who loved her.

  6. That is so sad. Our thoughts are with her family and those who knew her.
