The magic of pets!

Dear friend Dan Gomez sent this to me on the 9th but I split it into two parts, covering yesterday and today.  Then found that the first part didn’t Post correctly; the pictures were missing.

So both parts are today – enjoy!


Part One: How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

1. 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?

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

   3. Dachshund: You know I can’t reach that stupid lamp!

       4. Rottweiler: Make me!

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

6. Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb!

Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

7. German Shepherd: 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!

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

9. Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I’m sorry, but I don’t see a light bulb!

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

11. Chihuahua : Yo quiero Taco Bulb. Or “We don’t need no stinking light bulb.”

12. Greyhound: It isn’t moving. Who cares?

13. Australian Cattle Dog:First, I’ll put all the light bulbs in a little circle…

14. 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.

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

Cats 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?”



Part Two: Why God made pets!

They help out around the house…

They protect our children… 

They look out for the smaller ones… 

They show us how to relax…

They “converse” with each other. 

They help you when you’re down… 

They are great at decorating for the Holidays.

They have “great” expectations. 

They are Patriotic.

They are happy to “test” the water.

They know who’s “BOSS. 

AND – They know when we need a good LAUGH! 

HAVE YOU SMILED TODAY? It is done by moving the corners of the mouth upward.


Big thank-you, Dan, but more to the point a big thanks to ‘SKF’ who sent it to you.

  1. I think the headache I woke up with has gone! Truly! Thank you so much for this post. Made me laugh and some of the dogs reminded me of old friends, esp., the black Lab! She looks like my ‘Free girl’ –so pretty and smart and sweet. The images are priceless!


    1. Thank you! Wish I could claim authorship but, sadly, I can not! Just delighted that it put a laugh on your face, even at 05:30! Which reminds me of the old saw, “What’s the ‘0’ mean in ’05:30′?” Answer: “Oh God it’s early!”
