'My Dog Ate My Aston Martin'

Brit’s collie eats his $130,000 car. Gets sent to the farm.

When Royston Grimstead, acontractor from Somerset, England, placed an ad to try and find a newhome for his dog who wasn't getting along with the other dog in the house, henever expected the bitch to take it out on the car in his driveway. But when he left forwork one morning, he found the four year old border collie chewing away at thewheel well of his prized Aston Martin sports car that was parked in the driveway in front of the house.

The dog managed to cause$5,000 in damages to the $130K Aston Martin DB9 Volante’s fiberglass wheel archbefore finally being pulled away by her astounded owner. Luckily for Grimstead, the bite damagewas covered by the insurance company. The dog has already been ‘re-homed’ to adifferent family - hopefully one with less expensive taste in cars.
