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

Posted on 19 March 2019

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!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeese let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeese, 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 Shepherd: 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?'

ALL OF WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT WHILE DOGS HAVE MASTERS, CATS HAVE STAFF!

We have had a great response to our shoe box appeal so far, including these lovingly wrapped boxes for our dogs and cats from Tamsin and Jordan.
Lilly has done a great job modelling them and can't wait to open one on Christmas day! 🎄🎁
A BIG thank you to everyone who had donated boxes so far! 🐶🐱
(please note, Lilly is not currently up for adoption as we are doing some further medical investigations. When she is ready she will go up on our website)

What a bunch of Christmas Catters we have for you this week! Leading the black pack we have Amy (4, F) who loves a fuss and Binks (1, M) a shy boy with great lap cat potential. We have two purrfect pairs in Eddie and Freddie (4 and 2, M) - very different characters who share a strong bond. Then there’s Rodney and Chicco (14 weeks and 2 years, M) who are looking for a home together. We have a couple of older girls in Lulu (9) who enjoys a warm lap and Misty (12) who is a low maintenance girl but will let you know when she wants a fuss. And finally there is Tamico (1, M) who is a great lover and likes a lot of fuss. For further details on any of our cats for rehoming please call reception on 01452 740300 or visit the website at https://www.teckelsanimalsanctuaries.co.uk/cats/ 🙏🐾
