From ABC News out of Spokane, Washington, researchers have identified a type of "long panting" sound that Dogs make to be the equivalent of a "laugh" and that it appears to make other dogs stop barking.
"When they played the sound of a dog panting over the loudspeaker, the gaggle of dogs at the shelter kept right on barking. But when they played the dog version of laughing, all 15 barking dogs went quiet within about a minute. "
