Q. 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.

You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

Make me.

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

Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can
I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

German Shepherd:
I'll change it as soon as I lead these people from
the dark, check 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.

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

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

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

Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

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

It isn't moving. Who cares?

Australian Cattle Dog:
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a
little cluster...

Toy 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.

and a last minute addition the Couture Dog (aka mixed breed) Let's get Brian to do it, (thanks Connie, didn't mean to leave them off the list).

The Cat's Answer: Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light
bulbs. So, the real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?

Adore your dogs, about which you obviously know a thing or two! Our mixed breed would say, 'let Brian (my husband) do it'.

Very clever!!! You got all the dogs down, but I am definitely the cat!!!

Sandra said...

Love this, it fits the dog types perfectly. We have a lab.

Monica said...

This is hilarious, Erin! Your cats and dogs are always so charming. I'll add a beagle to the list: with their noses always on the ground, they would probably say something like: "Lightbulb? Which lightbulb?" :-)

Very funny, I'm with the cat, cool answer!
