“This isn’t what I meant when I said we could get a pet,” Lex said with a heavy sigh. His head dropped into his hands, and he massaged the tightness he could feel building behind his temples. Peeking pass his palm, he saw twin looks of guilt on Clark and the huge dogs’ faces. He sighed again. It didn’t matter what he said; the decision had obviously already been made.
“At least don’t wrestle on the furniture,” he muttered, sweeping pass them. He heard a triplet of heavy Thuds and glanced back to see the dogs now literally on top of Clark in the floor. His husband’s head was thrown back, and his whole body shook with his laughter. Lex sighed yet again. At least if Clark was going to bring home strays, it was dogs and not humans.
Or cows, he thought, considering Clark’s farm childhood. Or ducks. He remembered the one time Superman had stopped traffic to make certain a duck mother and her brood were able to get safely back to the Metropolis docks. Yes, it could have been a lot worse, he acknowledged. He’d just thank his lucky stars and stay stuck with the Bernard mixes.
