I saw this one?

 

 

There was also this one last week, although this dog didn't die thankfully:

I think DOL is the place that helped me decide years ago to never use the Spirit, after that person lost all their rotties :'( 

 

Between these guys and the polo ponies, I really hope the Spirit starts re-evaluating how they transport animals. They noticed the dog in strife but didn't do anything, not even inform the owner. He was dead, but they didn't tell the owners for 7 hours? They don't have a vet or anything on standby.
