Elderly lady hurt by dog I called my mother today to see how things are going down in Florida. She told my about her neighbor who is 70 years young had an accident while walking her dog. Apparently the lady was walking her Saint Benard and was on her way back to her house when the dog recognized my mother outside and became very excited with joy. The dog started running towards my mother and the elderly lady was unable to release the leash. I do not know if she had the leash wrapped around her wrist or what. The dog made her fall to the ground and was dragging her on the pavement. The paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital. The lady broke her shoulder and had some road rash. When I visited my mother about two years ago I saw this dog and it does not look that old. Let' say the dog is 10 years old, the lady would be 60 years of age. What is an 60 year old lady doing with a Saint Benard???? The dog is at her daughters house about a hour drive away from her, my mother takes her to the doctor appointments and checks up on her to make sure she is OK since she lives alone, and this lady can not wait to get her dog back home. She is 70 years young going on 20 I guess.
