On December 28, 2013 18 dogs boarded at the Family K9 kennel in St. Lazare, Quebec, over the holidays have died in a fire, according to CBC News. Families coming back from vacation are now picking up their beloved pets' remains.

The owner of the boarding facility left the dogs unattended and the fire department was alerted to the fire when the neighbors called. Unfortunately, all of the dogs had perished by the time the fire department arrived to put out the flames.

Families are left wondering why their beloved pets were left unattended in the first place.

According to CBC News, one regular customer, Michel Cohen, who lost their four year old golden doodle to the fire, stated the owner told him he frequently left the dogs unattended. Cohen and his family are distraught over their loss and have retained a lawyer.

The cause of the fire is under investigation but is not believed to be suspicious.
