— An 83-year-old Robeson County woman died Friday morning, a week after she was attacked by four family dogs.

The dogs, two adults and two puppies owned by her granddaughter, jumped Alemeaner Dial Saturday as she sat on the porch of her home in the 1900 block of Gaddys Mill Road in Rowland, according to Bill Smith, the Robeson County health director. 

Smith said the granddaughter and her dogs had been living with Dial, and the dogs had all their vaccinations and appeared to have been properly cared for.

    What on earth???
    Dogs don't just "turn" like that.
    Prayers for those who loved her, and I pray she didn't suffer while she lingered.
    Where are the dogs now?
