It's hard to say for me because I have never had an animal, but I think they really have a sense of humour. I can't explain it, but I believe in it. I often see two cats or dogs which are playing with each other, and I think they can communicate with each other and that's why they are happy. I can't say how animals can understand other animals, but I think they just can.

I don't think that animals have a sense of humour. With it I mainly associate jokes. When people tell them or laught at them, we know that they have a sense of humour, but animals..? I have a dog and I often feel that he is happy when I for example come back home or when I play with him in some games, but he unfortunately doesn't understand jokes, so he can't have a sense of humour.

Lately I have been reading that monkeys like and can laugh and they laugh sounds similarly to our. But I don't think that others animals have sense of humor. For example when I come back to home my dog is enjoy that I come but he doesn't laugh when I said jokes or something funny.

I dont think so that animals have sense of humor, they can have a lot of type emotion but i never saw my cat laughing or something like this, my cat is happy, sad or bored but never saw any behavior that would indicate a sense of humor.

Animals don't have a sense of humour. That can't laugh. They can't telling jokes. They can't doing crazy mines.

This is hard question, 'cause we don't know what other person or animal {-: feel, but in my opinion- ofc they have! My Grandfather has a dog and he certainly have sense of humour! He (dog, not Grandfather {-: ) smiles, he shows us a lot of feelings every day! So- yes! :ok:

Yes, be more sensitive of your pets' felling... observe them more often, eventually you will notice that they too find ways how to communicate with you.
Good luck!

I think it's true. We all have inexplicable fears, which can sometimes take over us and immobilize our will. I'm afraid of height, for example. I haven't been able to overcome this fear since my childhood. But at the same time it's so natural for people to be afraid of something. This world is full of dangers, and in order to survive we must always be cautious and alert.

yes, they have feelings too... my youngest puppy (all of my dogs are puppies even if they are old already) has thought of a way how to ask us to play with her. :-)
