"...A group of researchers says dogs 'laugh' by making a long, loud panting sound...to other dogs, it is at least a sound worth keeping quiet to listen to."

Hmmm. My dog sits in the bathroom when I shower in the morning and makes a long, loud panting sound when I get out.

. . . ? ? ? ! ! !

I'm gonna kill her.

Hey, what do you expect, humans are ridiculous, taking off their "fur" and getting wet behind a curtain, going "potty" in the "large swirling water dish" (everyone knows the place for that is outside on the grass). http://www.cosgan.de/images/midi/frech/a090.gif

Seriously, that description of dog "laughter" seems pretty accurate to me. They usually "laugh" when they are playing...listen for it, you'll pick it up easily.

And those lousy humans, putting their excretions in a dog's favorite watering hole!

Maybe you and Jim could record these and put out a best-selling 'Dogs Laughing' CD; I can see you at the Grammies already---then there's the cross-over factor to consider, too...

Let's just hope our wet-nosed friends are laughing with us, not at us. ;)

I haven't heard the panting while I'm in the shower (whew!).

Except when I sing (gulp!).

My dogs whine enough, it makes sense they can laugh as well. :D

hrm... I think it may be time to lock the dogs out of the bedroom...I can live with eyes and noses, but it's hard to ignore laughter. It would put me right off my stroke!

My dog used to run, tail tucked and yiping when I got out of the shower...or got dressed\undressed...
