Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.


Friedrich Nietzsche - German philosopher (1844-1900)


(This quote was suggested to Sharon by Zanymuse. Thank you, Brenda!)

I like laughing. Hilarious!

Suffering - not so much. Sad

But sometimes the heart is just too heavy to laugh. Shrug!

Well, that is odd, Brenda. Because this quote is one that was prepared before Sharon left me in charge. All I did was add the image. Confused

Shrug! This must have been sent to Sharon when she was under the weather. It is not the type of mistake she would generally make. Lovey dubby

I wonder, is it truly man alone who laughs? I have seen animals that seem to be laughing at each other and at people. Sometimes I think Pyxle laughs at/with me. It is a funny sound she makes and her eyes seem to brighten. There are also chimps and orangutans that seem to laugh.

I'm glad you brought that up! I must agree. Whether it is considered laughing or not, I don't know. But for sure, dogs definitely seem to be so happy at times that their mouths break into severe smiles, which appear to be uncontrollable. Just like laughing!. Great point!

Animals with a sense of humor, frankly I doubt, I do think they try to emulate us which corresponds with their desire to please us. Humor is essentially an emotion, a reaction to circumstance. It is us humans that try to identify human traits in our dogs, cats and try to explain their behavior, perhaps adjusting it to something that we can identify with. At times we find them funny but do they find us funny? Rolling on the floor laughing

The opposite of laughter is to cry, we do that too.

Fortune favors the brave.
Tickling is no laughing matter.

A dog’s tear ducts drain the liquid back towards the throat and nose area instead of spilling out unless their tear ducts are clogged. They express emotions like joy, grief and fear. They seem to find humor in playing keep away. I do believe they have a sense of humor and it is often expressed in their facial expressions. Shrug! Even scientists disagree on the subject of what emotions a dog has.

Brenda, please don't think we disagree here, I have a dog that seems to display many human qualities but how many of those are copied from us?
They are intelligent without a doubt. I Love my dog I do and he knows it, I'm his master and his slave.

" I'm his master and his slave."

And that sums up all the best dog/people relationships. Thumbs up

A guy goes into a pub with his cat, he boasts to his drinking buddies that his cat can talk!
His friends laugh and say if that cat can talk the drinks are on us, one guy chirps up and says, "come on cat talk then". The cat looked up, blinked and said, "Me how"?
