This week's quote: Is from Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis. I don’t know why I found the scenes between Josh and his new puppy Tank so funny. Probably because Josh is a well respected ER doctor yet he couldn’t handle a tiny Pug puppy. It’s the ultimate showdown between man and wee beastie.
This is all your fault,” Josh told the wriggling puppy as he walked toward his house.
Tank didn’t give a shit. He’d caught sight of a butterfly and was growling ferociously, struggling maniacally to get free so he could attack.
Tank was the Antichrist.
“Look, we all know you think you’re a badass, but that butterfly could kick your ass with one wing tied behind its back,” Josh told him, tightening his grip as he used his other hand to reach into his pocket for his phone.
His wet phone, which—perfect—was fried. Seemed about right, given his day so far. “You could have kept running for the hills,” he said. “Or at least stayed ‘lost’ long enough to get me that kiss.”
Tank stretched his nonexistent neck and oversized pug head so he could lick Josh’s chin again.
