One of our most valued – and certainly most loved members of our team here at Rustybug is Steve`s beloved Smurf. Smurf was born 10 years ago, and his mum was a German Shepherd and his dad a Burmese, resulting in the handsome bear-like, unique specimen that is known in our parts as Smurf.
Few visits to our workshop are made without customers receiving a friendly welcome from Smurf – the gentlest of guard dogs, when you come to visit us to see the progress of your car blasting job, you can expect a warm `hello` from our Smurf.
Since he was born
Steve and Smurf have been partners in crime – inseparable ever since Steve saw Smurf being born ten years ago, and Smurf has been a garage dog ever since. Smurf doesn`t just enjoy hanging out at the garage, watching us blast cleaning classic cars, stripping down and rebuilding old vehicles or car body painting, he also is a great motivator and faithfully accompanies Steve to wherever he may go.
Smurf is proud to have completed the Coast to Coast walk from one side of the north of England to the other amongst many other walks and he has also attended more car shows than most people have!
Even those who aren`t particularly great dog-lovers, quickly become fans of Smurf once they meet him – often being an added bonus to a visit to us at the workshop, and Smurf has a large – and every growing fan club. In fact, he is probably more popular than the rest of us put together!
