David Letterman is known for making jokes, so naturally he’d get goofy when telling stories about his family’s new dog, Sully. But speaking to the ladies of The View Tuesday morning, he actually seemed a bit serious about his disdain for the pooch.

“He’s part yellow Lab, part crime lab,” the Late Show host told Barbara Walters. “It’s been a nightmare. He likes to shred your flesh and drink your blood.”

All kidding aside, Letterman did say that the pooch, a companion for his 6-year-old son Harry, is “a cute dog.” Let’s hope his good looks help win Dad’s heart!
