Maybe the dog has been allowed loose, hassled Ms. Bossier's cat, bird, bunny, chicken, whatever, defecated in her yard, before. Still, threatening to kill the owner with a hammer is over-reacting. A complaint to Animal Services would have been a better course of action.

Not blaming the victim, and dogs do get loose, but on El Camino, any loose dog would have a short life span.

Yes, there must be more to this story.

Perhaps there's more to the story, or the woman is just very ill.

Sounds like the attacker is likely mentally ill.
