Yes, animals do feel and express deep emotions just like their human counter-parts.  They become depressed when a companion dies and mourn for their loss. See http://www.deathofmypet.com  for more information.

Many experts (myself included) agree that animals, birds and other animals feel their live deeply.  This isn't a new topic.  In fact, Charles Darwin wrote about animal emotions way back in 1872.  His studies were on dogs who grinned and monkeys who chuckled when tickled.  

Pure Joy in Animals

Just now, our dog Rosie heard my husband say "Think I am going to take the dog on a walk in the sunshine."  Rosie went from a solid sleep to bouncing with joy and anticipation.  Was our dog grinning? Oh yes, she was one happy camper.  She knew that a walk in the sunshine meant a trek to the river and an opportunity to play in the leaves and chase sticks and snap at flies and all sorts of wonderful exciting times with her "fur family."

Barbara King, professor of anthroopology at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA says: "Tody, after thousands of years of friendship, there is a great deal of attunement between humans and dogs, not only in terms of comprehension of each other's gestures and body language but also emotionally."
