How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)


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.

My Labs are sitting here right now looking at me with cocked heads, just waiting for the next fun thing to do!

Fountain, FL(Zone 8a)

LOL...Rhodesian Ridgeback...if it's not on the counter we're not interested!!

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

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!

Deep South Coastal, TX(Zone 10a)

Wally "our doberman" agrees with you. He likes to sneak a nap on the couch!!

Surry, VA(Zone 7b)

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

Brownville, NY(Zone 4a)

LOL! The cocker spaniel bit is TOO true...I used to give away rolls of paper towels and a container of Resolve with the pups I sold.

Spicewood, TX(Zone 8b)

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!

Fountain, FL(Zone 8a)

Wingnut...did you find your picture yet?? RRs are the worst for counter surfing!!!

I'm guilty of reading back posts. I've seen this before. But still had a good giggle.

Santa Ana, CA(Zone 9b)

Thanks Vickie, I wasn't reading Pets back then!

Framingham, MA(Zone 6a)

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.

Andre the demon child would be in the kitchen counter surfing or trash can diving.
