  • 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.

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

  • Labrador: 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’ve led these people from the dark, checked to make sure I haven’t missed any, and made 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? What light bulb?  I can’t see anything.
  • Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still mess on the carpet in the dark.
  • Yorkshire Terrier: Sure; let me just bark and bark and bark at it first. Where’s my treat?
  • Pointer: I see it, there it is, there it is, right there…
  • Greyhound: It isn’t moving. Who cares?
  • Australian Shepherd: First, I’ll put all the light bulbs in a little circle…
  • 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.

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?’

Proving once again that, while dogs have masters, cats have staff.

    All cats have the same attitude, and we let them get away with it. Entirely our own fault. 🙂

    LOL! As a matter of fact, I just had to change a light bulb yesterday. Rupert, a mutt of undetermined parentage, was sound asleep on a fuzzy fleece blanket on the sofa. His hair however, which gets everywhere, was very helpful in tickling my nose while I was precariously perched upon a chair reaching up into the lamp.
