I used to believe dogs and other animals could talk if they wanted to -- I guess because I watched it happen in so many cartoons and etc -- but that they just didn't want to.
after i saw the first doctor doolittle movie i thought i could talk to animals so i would just get in front of my dog goose and just start talking and he would look at me and i was convinced that he was listing to every word i said
My mom used to tell me that all cats had a devils hair at the end of their tails, thats why we couldnt have one. Now im all grown up and she has a cat of her own that she spoils rotten.
When I was growing up, I always wanted a German Shepard dog. My Mother told me we couldn 't have one because no one in our family spoke German so the dog wouldn't be able to understand us, and we wouldn't know when he was hungry or had to go outside...
I used to believe that I could become a cat if I tried really hard. I would crawl on the floor like a cat and meow like a cat. Since I meowed so much, I would actually answer someone's question with a meow on accident. This went on for awhile, until fourth grade, when the teacher asked me a question and front of the class and I meowed.
Since there was no explanation given for why cats became pregnant, I concluded that it was just something that happened - no real cause.
i used to believe that dogs were made from dogwood trees
I used to believe that all garbage bags on the side of the road were filled with kittens that people had thrown away. I think it originated from a Tom & Jerry cartoon. I would cry and beg my mom to stop and pick up the bags but I wouldn't tell her why. I thought she would refuse because we already had 2 cats. It was torture on road trips but mom just thought I was environmentally conscious.
I used to belive that if a dog licked you on the mouth and his slobber got in your mouth that you would die..then again that was when i was like 5.
When I was about 6 my babysitter was telling me about this other girl she babysat for and didn't really like. She said "She's got this kitten that she goes on and on about. She thinks the sun shines out of that cat's bottom". I had never heard that phrase before and was amazed that someone my age could really believe that about a cat. Oh dear, looks like I was the stupid one...
When I was about 8 I was convinced that my dog possessed the ability to speak but I had to teach him the words first. I spent many afternoons trying to get him to say something but to no avail.
I used to beleive that when a dog cought up with the cat, he would eat him!!!!!
My mother recently told me that I believed our dog was highly intelligent and mimicked human behavior. I thought this because oftentimes when I was sitting on the floor playing, he would come up behind me, rear up on his hind paws, and drape his front legs over my shoulders. I thought he was hugging me as an expression of his affection and had learned this from watching us. I don't think an explanation is needed as to what he was actually doing... Lord only knows how my mother didn't laugh in my face when I proudly informed her the dog had hugged me again!
My father used to bathe our dog in the bathtub. When it was time for me to take a bath, he would tell me not to stay in the tub too long because I might get pregnant with puppies. Yep, as a child I believed him.
I used to think if a cat were to eat dog food, it would make it bark. If a dog ate cat food, it would make it meow. I used to sneak a taste of dog food once in a while (it was good). My parents told me if I ate that stuff, I would turn into a dog. If I ate cat food... well, you know.
When I was younger, I believed that my dog Sasha(a Basenji) was an alien. She didn't bark like other dogs and her tail was curly. I thought that didn't bark because she could actually talk and that her tail would unroll and become like an antenna so she could talk to the other alien dogs. Everytime we left the house she would go under the porch. I thought she had a computer and radio's under there to talk to her species. Haha... I once crawled all the way under to see if there was anything. When the movie Cats & Dogs came out, I was an adult, but I thought maybe instead of an alien, all this time she was a secret angent. Haha... I still kinda wonder sometimes... She's way past the point that most dogs die.
When my daughter was 3, she saw a cat using a litter box. She thought it was building a sand castle.
I used to think dogs had jobs, their own cars, went shopping for groceries..and to the bank on their own..we never saw them do this, because we were in school, during these times..I watched Snoopy as a child..
I was about two or three, but I vaguely remember we had a yard full of cats. I remember walking among them and wondering where all these things were coming from. I thought they dropped out of sky one by one.
I used to think that when I slept with a cat it would keep all the bad ghosts away.
I still think that!
