    No, and she won't laugh at your jokes since language to a dog is just noise. She can learn to recognise command words and will respond to the tone of your voice and read your body language behaving accordingly. But, if relaxed and happy, a dog will smile by drawing it's lips really wide (without opening it's mouth). On the other hand, you can really upset a dog by obviously laughing at it. Warning, if you are ever in a situation where your face is close to a dog, especially one you do not know well - keep your mouth shut, smile if you like but don't show your teeth.

    LOL. Great question. A dog's not going to laugh at something you tell him, because he doesn't know English...however, pretty smart dogs seem to find things funny sometimes. I've taught my dog to howl, which drives my mother crazy. Now our dog only does it when both of us are around, so I can laugh and my mother yells. Then the dog runs away and looks very pleased with herself. I get the feeling if she could laugh, she would be at that time. :)

    No but they smile.

    Instead of giving your dog a belly rub, give him a belly tickle. Tickle is belly and you'll see him smile.
