Then, the pit bill allegedly pounced on her golden retriever."The pit bull had him by the head," Crockett said. "He had two puncture wounds to his ear and an abrasion outside of his ear, which did get infected, but he's fine now."Crockett said her golden retriever is a 10-year-old named Riley. Her other dog, an 8-year-old Coon-Hound mix named Sam, was involved but not injured, she said.Graveline's dogs allegedly exited a car that had just pulled into Graveline's driveway. Police said the car was driven by Graveline's sister, but it was Graveline who made the threat after exiting her house.When police responded, Graveline was not found at the scene. Her sister told police she was out of state, according to court documents.Graveline's sister said Crockett's dogs had come onto their lawn before the attack.Police asked Crockett if the sister made the threat, but she identified the person in question as Graveline. Police officially charged Graveline a few days later.Crockett, who said she's lived at the same home over 20 years, said she had spoken to Graveline several times previously about her dogs roaming the neighborhood unleashed after several incidents occurred, including one in which a St. Barnard allegedly cornered Crockett in a yard. Crockett said she'd never called the police until this incident."I felt that day warranted a call to police," Crockett said. "She'd never threatened me the way she did." Crockett said she would not walk her dogs around the neighborhood for a week after the attack. Now, she only walks them if she's with another person."It scared the hell out of me," she said.Graveline could not be reached for comment.A Hooksett District Court judge allowed Graveline to remain free on $4,000 personal recognizance bail at her arraignment Wednesday. Her trial date is scheduled for Aug. 2. NUTTERS YOU GOTTA LOVE 'EM.
