Since it became de rigeur to hate on Wall Street, one of the most common refrains we hear about are financial services employees’ abuse of animals. “Goldman Sachs clubs baby seals in the basement of 85 Broad” this, “bankers kick puppies and have a good laugh about it” that. Well look who the sick fucks are now.
A high-powered Manhattan duo’s beloved French bulldog died after heartless dog sitters let him overheat in the back of a van and then dumped him — to perish alone — at their Upper West Side apartment, according to the suit. Bankers Laura Garner and Robert Hardon entrusted their 5-year-old pooch, Percy, to caretakers at Queens- based Doggie Love for one night in July 2009 while they were out of town, the suit says. “From the instant I saw Percy . . . I knew he was the one,” a devastated Garner wrote in an affidavit, recalling the start of her love affair with her pet.
But that affection wasn’t shared by Doggie Love, says the suit filed by the couple in Queens Supreme Court yesterday.
