I think that animals don't have a sense of humour, because they are only animals. Sense of humour is specify for humans. Pets can do something funny, but they don't know, what they are doing at the moment. They do this because they want to get a delicacy or draw our attention.

In my point of view animals haven't a sense of humour but have a sense of 'fun', but half the things we find funny just don't work with no language. How can you really tell if your dog's finding something funny when it looks happy after doing something silly, or if it's just happy that you're enjoying something it did?

Of course yes! Animals do funny things all time! I don't have a puppy, because I have an allegy, but my friends tell me jokes and stories in the lead role of their animals. For example I heard about a dog using the toillet or cat who takes showers and singing :D

I agree with the fact that not every animal has a sense of humor, because it is related to the level of intelligence. - The sense of humor in animals we can count, if the intelligence of a species is developed above. So with ants and beetle not to cause laughter, but the monkey already so! :)
Scientifically proven!

In my point of view animals have a sense of humor although we don't understand them because they speak in their language. Dogs are one of animals which show their satisfaction and we can observe and feel it. One of my dogs all time is happy. I think that it has a sense of humor and by the means it would like to relay this me. Sometimes animals behave strange way which cause on our face smile. I think that animals have feelings and it is binding with having sense of humor. :)

From my point of view the animals have a sense of humour because they can do funny things. For example my dog hides my shoes in to his kennel. Also, cats have a sense of humour because they can play with you in lots of funny or stupid ways. They enter into a bag and to play like on a carousel, for instance.

I don't think that animal have a sense of humour because only people are capable of doing things, which are funny and do it to make somebody laugh. Pets do some things, which are funny too but they do it because they want to draw our attention and get a delicacy

In my opinion animals have sense of humor. I think that, because my cat has really good sense of humor. Every time, when I go to the kitchen, he hides behind the wall and when I am close, he attacks me and runs away like a ninja. Also usually, when I do my homework or learn he lies down on my books, covers up everything and I can't learn anymore.

In my opinion animals don't have sense of humour. There aren't any scientific evidences that they have sense of humour. Animals sometimes do something similar to smilinig but actually they are just thirsty. Last but not least reason is that they don't laugh, and they don't tell jokes. Sombody cans say "But animals can't speak so how can they tell jokes?" Exactly, they cannot, so my question is how they can have a sense of humour without telling a joke and laughing.

In my mind animals have a sense of humor. They like doing something crazy time to time. When I play the ball with my dog, she usually catch it in his paws and smile :D She seems to be happy and I think it make her a lot of fun.

From my point of view the animals don't have sense of humour. I think that, because animals make me laugh by their stupid. I know that animals make our laugh but they do it completely by chance. I have two small kitties. I know that looking after that is so funny, their jumps from trees, chaising each other but this is their normal life, the same as our.

It is hard to say. I have never been an animal like dog or cat. I am certain that all people belong to realm of animals, so people can suppose that animals have a sense of humour. In my opinion animals are nearly identical as people , but people understand more. It the only differnce between people and animal. Animals like play with people. Dogs like wagging their tails. They must have a sense of humour. They are the living creatures , so they have qualities like sense of humour.

I think that animals have a sense of humour. For example, when cat is young, he want play with other cats or with his owner. Every of them scratch or accost somebody. If they don't have a GSOH they won't play and they will sleep and eat a whoooooole day.

I'm sure that animals have a sense of humour. They do funny things and we often say that our animals are very hilarious.
Young animals are crazy and for example dogs try to catch their tail and cats catch everything what is moving.
People can also watch TV programs which shows humour of animals. It always causes smile on my face ; )

I thinkt that animals have a sense of humour, beacuse thet always make us smile and laugh. They do some trick and they are very funny. I saw video where dog said "i love you". That was really hilarious. Cat trying catch a red light make me laugh too. In my opinion animals have a sense of humor and they always make us smile.

I think animals have sense of humor because sometimes we can see that cat or dog doing tricks. It's really funny and it makes that we smile. On the internet we can find videos which show for example cats trying catch a light or dogs trying catch their tail. I watch it when I have free time :)
Pets like play with owners. {-: {-;

In my opinion animals don't have sense of humor. Of course, we can see when our cat or dog jump, try to catch tail and do really comic things but I think it's not connect with sense of humor. Animals just like to play with humans . I can be wrong because i have never had any of them.

I can't answer at this question, because I've never had animal.On the one hand one day I watched carefully the hamster Bob for eight hours which was gift for my little cousin. I didn't noticed that he had sense of humour. He did't smile, jupm or play. The hamster only slept and ate. But on the other hand I watched a lot of movies in which animals did laughable things. I don't know what I should think.

I think, that animals don't have a sense of humour, but we often think like this, because animals entertain us. Animals don't do this specially. For their behaviors are responsible nature. Animals don't know, that they have a sense of humour. I suppose only people have a sense of humour, but I can't to explain why I think that.

As far as Im concerned I've never had any pets and im not pretty sure that they have sens of humor. I'm not an expert ... but Ithink Animals don't have souls so probably they are empty inside. Laughing in animals has a different function than in humans. It seems to me that we will never know the answer to this question, because we cannot ask for a animals. Unfortunately, Animals cannot talk. :)

I believe that animals don't have sense of humor, because I have a dog, which lays on the bed all days. She doesn't show any feelings. Except for times when someone has something to eat. At once you become her best friend. Dogs have brains respondent two years old children's brain. Sometimes we can imagine that they have sense of humor but this is only an illusion, because they have smile on their faces.
