Another Picture of Me and Daisy
I look a lot smarter when I have my glasses on. These days I have my glasses on pretty much all the time, except when I'm sleeping or in the shower. I guess I don't look that smart in the shower.
Some border collie humor:
How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.
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?
You know I can't reach that dumb stupid lamp!
Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I?
Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.
Jack Russell Terrier:
I'll 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.
While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch.
Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark......
Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.
Yo quiero Taco Bulb.
Can somebody else do it? I've got this hangover.....
I see it, there it is, there it is, right there....
It isn't moving. Who cares?
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle....
Old English Sheep Dog:
Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb?
Alright, everyone stop where you are! Who busted the light? I SAID, "STOP WHERE YOU ARE!!!"
You need light? Tell hit to someone who cares. (Thanks Beep Beep for the addition.)
The truth about border collies. (Click the link if you have a border collie or used to have one)
