Dogs Laugh, Cats Laugh Last
That “long, loud pant” you sometimes hear from your dog isn’t just a weird bark -- it’s actually the sound of a dog laughing. Or so says a researcher at Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service in Washington state who, ABC News reports, “has studied everything from hamster culture to elephant self-recognition.”
Hamster culture!? Everyone knows those little hairballs are total philistines! There have never been any great Hamster painters, and that one dance they know is laughably amateurish!
Anyway, we would like to emphasize that this new study does not mean that dogs are better than cats. While dogs may laugh, cats laugh last! (See picture at left.)
