"There's evil in him."
Jeb stared into the dog's soulful eyes.
The dog yawned.
"Derrin, that dog's man's best friend."
"He threatened to kill me."
Jeb laughed. "You been drinking. Need a beer."
Derrin watched the dog, lying on the porch.
"I didn't say I'd kill you. I'm going to eat you," the dog said.
