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

Another that is not mine and I do not know who first wrote it but I have had it a while, please enjoy as the person obviously intended it to be seen.

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

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!


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

TIBETAN TERRIER: 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.

POODLE: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

GERMAN SHEPHERD: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, checked to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation. 

COCKER SPANIEL: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark. 

DOBERMAN: 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......

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: It isn't moving. Who cares?

YORKSHIRE TERRIER: I'm over qualified, have the boxer do it!

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: ZZZZZZzzzzz.z.z.z..z..z..z...z

SCHNAUZER: Bark bark bark. Mom, the light bulb is out...bark bark bark bark...MOM! I said the light bulb 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.

And what about CATS? 

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


Just realised this may be kindling for the cat and dog fighting we have.

Take care and kindest regards

Thank you and .... so long, and thanks for all the fish ....

The long dark teatime of the soul :P :P

That was so jack Russell :)


Teatime? You have biscuits with teatime!


OMG, Ken. Over on my "Campaign Face" if you must. Bourbons and I don't mean biscuits :P


Oooh! More Bourbons! yum! yum!


The French executed their bourbons didn't they?


Well I bite the heads off mine, starting at the letter B and working down! Oooh!


Oooh I take mine in half and lick them into submission!


I just bite in to them.


I don`t like them


Can I have yours. If I don't Ken will


Isn't that, those, there Oreo's that grown ups aren't allowed to have?

I had written something else, but thought better of it and deleted it!




I'm allowed Oreos, but then I'm not grown up :P


That was really good, thanks so much for sharing this with us all.


Hi Terry and yep border collies are always ready to help, even if you don`t need it. I was listening to a radio discusion about dogs for the deaf and she was explaining why they can`t use border collies, If you teach a dog to react to the door bell other dogs will ignore it until it rings.A Collie will sit and stare at the bell all excited ,thinking go on, go on ring , ring. I had the same when we had hamsters, instead of just watching the hamster when it was out Cassie would spend all day watching the cage waiting for the hamster to come out. We had to move it to another room. :P

Any way, how are you doing? hugs sue xx


Hi Terry,

They made me laugh, and you may well have added fuel to the fire :) I am going to watch the posts with interest. Although I think dogs make friends with you when rewarded with attention and cats demand attention for the little friendship they reward you with :)

Take care, Susan x


Love this!

My maremma would NOT approve of me climbing stepladders to to achieve such tasks and no you are spot on, the cats wouldnt help!


Oh that's so, so right on the button!!! XX
