If dogs dream do cats? What about dolphins? Elephants? Fish? Birds?
Is there a level of intelligence or brain size that determines if any animal is able to dream or not?
As human beings we are capable of remembering certain intense dreams (fear, sex, excitement/death etc...). Is there any way to know if animals can remember certain dreams?
Do dogs dream? YES!

In fact, all mammals dream. This includes cetaceans (dolphins, whales, etc.) whose concurrent needs for sleep AND oxygen AND dreams have created an ingenious solution. For the sake of brevity I won't expound on this here. Just Google for "do dolphins dream" and follow the yellow-brick road...
