Mia definitely has a sense of humor and I swear she laughs. I don't know what science says about laughing dogs, but a friend of mine swears her PWD laughs also.

There are two things that make Mia laugh, AFAIK. The first is when she mistakes a fallen tree limb for a prey animal and rushes after it. I swear she comes back laughing at herself. The second is when we play hide and seek in the house. I start her off in a down stay in one room, then go hide somewhere else. Sometimes while she's searching, I sneak around and hide in the spot where she was in her down stay. She thinks it's hilarious every time!

As for my friend and her dog, there's a certain trail in our area that involves crossing a river on a fallen tree. Her dog laughs when he knocks her off the tree into the water. I have to admit, that would make me laugh, too! It would seem that dog humor is mostly slapstick, around the level of The Three Stooges.

What does her laughing look and sound like?? I'm laughing just reading this. So cute.
She looks like she's chuckling! She has a broad, open smile, but she's breathing heavily - not as much as a guffaw, but at least as much as a chuckle. It's silent except for the breathiness of it.

Love this! Rory does it too. His favourite thing when we’re visiting my parents is to sneak a lick on my mum’s face when she’s not paying attention. When he gets her he gets the biggest grin and will do a similar laugh-like thing to anyone else in the room. ‘Did you see that? Got her!’

Yes! That is exactly the kind of silliness that would get a dog laughing!
