Pet dog gets the boot after she chews off owner’s $130,000 Aston Martin


We all have heard stories of dogs chewing through furniture, footwear and even mobile phones, but a freak story came in from England where a pooch munched the front wheel arch of her master’s beloved $130,000 Aston Martin. Royston Grimstead, 42, a divorced builder from Chedzoy, southern England left his home one morning, only to return to find the front end of his prized DB9 Volante chewed to bits by his border collie spaniel cross named ‘Luce’. It was a good enough reason for the British car fan to give his adorable dog the boot.

The builder from Somerset claims he already wanted to give away the 3-year-old because she didn’t get along with his other dog, and strangely says that it might be a reason why Luce got all destructive. “She must have overheard me because she’s normally friendly and never really chewed on anything before,” Grimstead said. Luce has already found a new home and hopefully Grimstead has learnt his lesson, never go for a sportcar with a fiberglass body.
