Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned-out bulb?

Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

Rottweiler: Make me.

Lab: Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I?

Malamute: Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.

Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture..

Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

Doberman Pinscher: While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch.

Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

Mastiff: Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

Irish Wolfhound: Can somebody else do it? I've got this hangover.

Pointer: I see it, there it is, there it is, right there.

Greyhound: If it isn't moving, who cares?

Australian Shepherd: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle ...

Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb.

Hound Dog: ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz.

Cat: Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So the question is: "How long will it be before I can expect light?"

Wish I knew who wrote it! Probably a cat.

That is the funniest thing I've read in a long while, and my border collies and Aussie agree. Hound is unable to comment, being asleep on the picnic table.

The lab's reply is right-on. We used to laugh and say our valuables were fair game as long as the thieves would pay attention to our lab and love on him a little. I miss that old dog!

I'm proud to be the mommy of a Border Collie who won't do any electrical work because her daddy takes her fishing with him all of the time! lol

I LOVE this!!!! Thanks for posting it! My three lab/ridgeback mixes all have different responses: "top dog" Blue agrees with the Mastiff, Mika (aka ChubChub) agrees with the Malamute and Filo, the youngster, says, "If you want me to I will, but can't you still pet me in the dark as long as I lean up against you real hard so you know I'm there?" But they ALL agree with Ginger's dogs!

Don't forget:

German Shepherd: Iíll change it as soon as Iíve led these people from the dark, check to make sure I havenít missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

Poodle: Iíll just blow in the Border Collieís ear and heíll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

SCHNAUZER: Bark bark bark. Mom, the lightbulb is out...bark bark bark bark...MOM! I said the lightbulb is out! Bark bark bark bark bark...MOM!!! WHAT PART OF THAT DIDN'T YOU HEAR? I MEAN HELLO????

SHIH TZU - Who me change a light bulb? We are royal decedents and we have staff to do that for us.
