Animal Humor: How many dogs does it take to screw in a lightbulb???

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams NY Realty - 120 Bloomingdale Road #101, White Plains NY 10605

pngHere is the next installment on my series of animal (pet) humor. Once again, I do not know who was responsible for this list so I will just present it and add one more breed of dog to the list..the Siberian Husky. Since I have two of them, I feel it is an appropriate addition. For those who have dog breeds not mentioned here - try adding your own response. Let's have some fun!png


How many dogs does it take to screw in a lightbulb???

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 lightbulb?

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.


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

GERMAN SHEPARD: I'll change it as soon as I've led 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.

Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.

Ill just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

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.

Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.png

While its 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.

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

GREYHOUND: It isn't moving, who cares?

First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...

Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb.


SIBERIAN HUSKY: We really don’t need more light in here – everyone is already blinded by the intense nature of my beauty. We could use some extra mirrors though.

CAT: Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the question is : How long will it be before I can expect light? ALL OF WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT WHILE DOGS HAVE MASTERS, CATS HAVE STAFF.

Hello Neal,

Maybe she can help the Australian Shepherd??

Hi Lissa,

I don't know who wrote this. I can't take credit.  Since I have Siberians - I added that. The rest is by an unknown author.

Hi Debbie ,

I don't know much about cats, but from what I have heard it is VERY on the money.

Hi Rosario,

It does hold true...loved the Border Collie and the Siberian addition was pretty good although that might be the two that I had.

Hi Patrice,

I have a husky/cattle dog mix in addition to the two white huskies.  I have quite a few pics of him. I have to say he is a mix between the breeds, but he is somewhat similar to the Aussie - he wants everyone TOGETHER...It works for him.  Huskies could care LESS about herding so he has an uphill battle.

Hi Terri, 

Buddy is my Australian Cattle dog mix - he too likes to "herd" but less so because of the husky in him. It's not as strong - but I could imagine what he'd be like if he was a pure breed.

Ruthmarie, that is so true!  I can just see all those dogs thinking of all those reasons.  Thanks for sharing.  BTW, I guess I am a staff member as I have 5 cats and one dog.  I know for sure they consider her their slave!

My cat agrees -- it is not a cat issue -- she will send a message to the staff and it will be taken care of!

I have read this many times!  Being a dog and cat owner I just laugh even more each time - I see it in my house every day!  I have a Golden - that description is Perfect.  I have a German Shepherd - even better description and the cat, well no need to go there!

I have three dogs, and when I ask them "who is going to help me vacuum?' They all respond with, Not me, I hate that thing!  But when I am done, they are all over the carpet rolling around like they were in Heaven!!!  Gotta go...dogs want a dog treats!

John -

I've never had a Springer Spaniel, but I hear they do have a one track mind....

Leesa -

WOW!!! Everyone with cats seems to be in complete agreement on this one...


If you get an inspiration - come back and post it.

Bonnie - Nice one - I don't know the breed that well, but it sound about right!

Chris - Ann - the descriptions are very accurate.  Surprising.

William - one shouldn't generalize - but many dogs do fit neatly into categories.

Cindy - the few Jack Russel's that I know really fit that description....
