No Dogs

4 Apr

Dear Subscribers,

If you came here looking for four funny videos of dogs, I spoke too soon: the videos worked in the draft but disappeared as soon as I hit publish.  I trashed the post in a fit of pique.

Here’s a dog joke, by way of apology:

How many dogs does it take to put in 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 light bulb?

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

Dachshund: I can’t reach the stupid lamp!

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.

Rottweiler: Go Ahead! Make me!

Shi-tzu: Puh-leeze, dah-ling. Let the servants do it…

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

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.

Mastiff: Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

Irish Wolfhound: Can somebody else do it? I’ve got a hangover.

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

Greyhound: It isn’t moving. Who cares?

    First! Lmao! I had to do it once in my life. I loved the Toy Poodle and the Shi-tzu.

    Reblogged this on nohateappreciate and commented:
    I think I’d be the Mastiff or the Doberman Pinscher. Perhaps even the Irish Wolfhound… Kidding. Maybe.

    Tilly, in the loading bay, as I call it – the place that flashes up all of the newly published posts – I saw your Four Dogs post, but thought it was another of your jokes. The words were showing up as HREF HREF, which I read as a dog’s bark.
    I must be barking myself. Or tired. Or both. Barking tired.

    I have a dachshund and his answer would have been the same as the cocker spaniel’s. Damn dog.

    My hubby had two Golden Retrievers when we met and they adopted me. You hit their attitude right on the money. They were great dogs, always up for anything, would do anything for you. Dylan and Jacquelina.

    Fantastic, the way you hit the dogs’ characters spot on. Loved the laugh it gave me, as It’s the middle of the night and I can’t sleep.

    Dogs, you gotta love them. My three Poms don’t like light bulbs but at least one of them can pee on the floor in the dark.

    How many cats does it take to change a lightbulb. None. Cats don’t change lightbulbs. They train humans to do it for them.

    Funny, I just had to change several lightbulbs in the house and Rupert was useless.
