I agree with you. For those who haven't had a chance to own a dog, they won't understand.

Yes, they do !

I have dog and cat. My dog is old but always he want playing. He runs with his toys for example bone, stone or ball. I see that he is smiling , because his eyes gleam. My dog sometimes makes me joke. He takes me my shoes and he carrys them outdoor.
My cat is bigger comic. My cat called Drapka. She is prankster. She runs everywhere. When I do my homework, she sits on my desk and knock down everything. She like biting when someone sleep, because she want playing all time.

Accordnig to my example , and other fanny stories I can tell: ANIMALS HAVE A SENSE OD HUMOR. meybe sometimes animals have bigger a sense od humor than some people. {-:

I suppose animals do not have a sense of humor but they are friendly and sometimes they can do something funny or silly and it makes us smile and laugh, but I don't think that is an evidence of a sense of humor.

I don't know if animals have a sense of humour. Some people talk to their pets but I think that they don't understand them. Animals have got they own language which people will never get to know. But some animals do funny things like getting around in circles and that makes us laugh .

I don't agree with this expression, because animals can't speak and tell f.e. jokes. They make somebody smile, but this doesn't mean: "They have a sense of humour". Moreover, that, animals perform ridiculous activites, doesn't signify the view.

I think that it isn't true that animals have a sense of humor because they are only animals and they aren't like people who can talk, laugh and feel. I know that animals sometimes can do a lot of funny things and they can put on a variety of funny and crazy positions but nonetheless in my opinin they haven't a sense of humor because they aren't beings who are able to communicate through speech.

I think it's true that animals have a sense of humour. Many people record videos as their pets behave ridiculously. For example, dance or move his head to the beat of the music.

I also had a funny situation with a dog my grandparents when I was six years old. Max was huge so I was afraid of him and always walked to the shed with my grandfather. One day I couldn't go for a grandfather, so Max ran up to me and put his paws on my shoulders. I got scared and I fell to the ground, and Max just started licking me. I was terrified, and for him it was fun.

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.
