How can they smile? Do they have smile muscles?


Once your pet dog's tail wags upon seeing you, you've got to look at its face then you'll see the smile. :)

Dogs have some muscles of sadness and anger. But they don't have any muscles of smile as far as I know.

They said, that the pet acquires the character of the owner. Do you believe in that? :P

Well, it was you who made me torture my doggie! Actually, it is far from what she does when meets us, but it is like that way - the corners of her lips... erm... chaps gather all together. we dogowners call this grin a smile usually, far from hollywood one

When my cat wakes me up with his claws in the morning, I really think he has a sense of humor. Sometimes I think he means to do something get me angry, then he can laugh at my reactions. I think he acts his sense of humor in a different way, but there is no doubt that animals have a sense of humor. I totally agree with that. :lol:

If you had observed a monkey imitates human behavior, you may find out it has something in common with human. When a monkey copies our reactions, it seems try to prove that we will laugh at the reactions. It is similar like how pets entertain their masters.

On this basis, it may be concluded that animals have a sense of humor. When they do something funny, they seem tend to catch our attention.
