A New York couple recently filed at $1 million lawsuit against Doggie Love, a pet sitting agency in Queens, after finding their dog dead on their apartment floor.

Laura Garner and Robert Hardon of West End Avenue left their dog under the care of Doggie Love for one July night in 2009. CBS News reports the couple adored their 5-year-old French bulldog.

The lawsuit indicates an employee of Doggie Love drove Percy home to the couple’s NYC apartment in an overheated van. The doorman and a neighbor offered the dog water or medical attention but the employee declined and left the dog in the couple’s apartment.

Just a few hours later, the couple found Percy dead in front of an air conditioner in the apartment. The post reports the couple stated, “The emptiness that has been left by Percy’s death and the anguish we suffered has not and will never be filled or go away.”

The lawsuit also states owner of Doggie Love, Nilo Mathais, said to the couple, “sometimes, dogs just die.” Marla Abrams, another owner, asked the couple, “What do you want from us?”
