Caren and Laine Henry walked their pet beagle along a gravel road near Laine’s father’s home in rural Madrid on Sunday afternoon. Their dog was on a leash and happily trotting along the trail, leading its owners.
“It was a perfect spring day,” Caren Henry remembered.
Then a 50-pound Labrador retriever mix with a black-and-white coat bounded out of a yard. The dog, named Buddy, plowed into Caren Henry. It bit into her right thigh and abdomen, puncturing the skin in both places.
