Does Your Pet Have A Sense Of Humor?

Eko never laughs at any of my jokes, but neither does anyone else, so that is not a good test of whether Eko has a sense of humor.

“I’m laughing at you, Will – not with you.”

Now, of course pets don’t have a developed sense of humor, but Eko certainly gets a kick out of joking with both dogs and people.

Eko never steals toys because he wants them, he steals them because another dog wants them!  He thinks it is a hoot to play keep away

And when other dogs aren’t looking, Eko cracks himself up by pushing his nose against their backs and then sprinting away to start a game of tag

My laughter is positive reinforcement for Eko.  If I laugh at something he does, he will do it repeatedly.  Hence why anytime I have my laptop open, there is a good chance Eko will plop his head right next to the screen

Similarly, the best tool to teach Eko to swim was laughter.  I would laugh when he swam to me and he loved it

Whether they know it or not, I feel like most pets are comedians.  What does your pet do that makes you laugh?

  1. Eko has the best smile too, so easy to be happy around him. When ever Blossum and Mr B are on the sofa together, she makes sure one of her paws is on him. If he gets up (usually to go to the fridge for a snack). She moves into his spot. Even if he’s gone for less than a minute, Blossum will be in his spot when he comes back. We laugh at that ‘little game’.
