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 burned-out bulb?

Rottweiler: Make me.

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

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.

Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

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

Australian Cattle Dog: "Move it light!, I said MOVE! Okayyy, you ask for it!" POP! "Oops!"

Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares?

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

German Shepherd: Alright, everyone stop where you are! Who busted the light? I SAID,"STOP WHERE YOU ARE!!!"

Hound Dog: ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz

Bull Terrier Grab, Pop! Crunch! Swallow! "What light bulb?".(burp!)

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!

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

All breeds: Are you kidding? Do it yourself!

In case you haven't noticed, there is a difference between a dog and cat when they really screw up. A dog will go "Hee, hee, hee, silly me." A cat will start looking for someone to blame.

George Carlin has a wicked funny old routine about the differences between cats and dogs. I won't quote any of it here as the language is questionable...but DH and I laughed our butts off.

I like the kitty hospital behind the couch, complete with little kitty wheelchairs and crutches. This is where the kittys go when they REALLY SCREW UP and they stay there until they recouperate , then deny anything was amiss :>)

Great post!

Being a dachshund owner/lover I would add that they would reply: "I'll dig right here and here and here but where on earth is that light bulb!!!!!"

Sounds like my lab alright! Loved your post to Ken--sounds like my cats too! :^) Thanks for the smile.

-- Sharon (, January 26, 2002.

Sorry Ken and after the grammar lesson too--make that "too Ken" NOT "to Ken" :>)

Still laughing. I can't wait to show my husband. Now I wonder, what would a chow mix be? Part willingness, part stiff upper lip I think.

-- Marty (, January 26, 2002.

Marty, My black Chow Chow mix would have opened one eye, asked to see my ID, give guarded permission, disguised himself as nightime without a moon and watched my every move very very carefully and then wait for something to happen.

-- Susan in Northern Michigan (, January 26, 2002.

My Old English Mastiff would say:"Sure, of course I'll do that for you, as long as its in OUR house. Um... Are you sure its safe??? Um... I'm not sure it LOOKS safe... Electricity and all... Could be dangerous... Maybe we'd better just go in another room." :)

Sorry, I stand by my use of to.


"To: Used for expressing motion of direction toward a place, person, or thing approached or reached." blame is a direction towards a person.

"Too: To an excess or marked degree, beyond what is usual, desirable, fitting, etc." E.g., "You are giving him too much blame." or "You are blaming him too much."

-- Ken S. in WC TN (, January 27, 2002.

love it. dead on.

-- B. Lackie - Zone3 (, January 27, 2002.

Ken, I was using it as in "also", which is too. I just made a typo and didn't read before I sent that's all. I was just kidding you, sorry you took it the wrong way.
