When is Man’s Best Friend not really Man’s Best Friend? As a Somerset, England man found out, it’s when she’s taking a few bites out of your $130,000 Aston Martin. Royston Grimstead left his home one morning, only to return to find the wheel arch of his British convertible chewed to bits, courtesy of one of his dogs.
Luce, the four-year-old Border Collie/Spaniel mix guilty of the damage, may have had motive, according to Grimstead. According to the 42-year-old man, he was already trying to find a new home for the adorable dog, claiming it didn’t get along with his other canines. “She must have overheard me because she’s normally friendly and never really chewed on anything before,” Grimstead said.
Luce has found a new home, and according to the Bridgwater Mercury, Grimstead’s insurance will cover the damage. Hopefully, Grimstead has now learned a valuable lesson from all of this: Always take the Aston Martin to work.
