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.

Scared of my alien/agent dog who won't die.

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.

When I was about five years old I had a small plastic jack russel terrier with a green collar on(I still have it lol)And our neighbors had a jack russel totally identical green collar and all! And I only saw him when we left to go somewhere or when we came back from where ever we went(they were our nearest neighbors and since we live in a rural area they were about a quarter of a mile away)And I always thought that my plastic dog and their real dog were the same dog!I thought that when we went somewhere he became real and rushed over to their house and sat and waited for us.I was scared to death of my toy dog and when ever I went to bed I would just stare at him sitting on the bookshelf with my other toy dogs(I had alot more than one lol)terrified.And one morning when I woke up he was sitting on the night stand staring at me(I didn't know it at the time but my mom knew how dreadfully afraid I was of the thing and she put him there for mean-ness)I immediately started sobbing and ran to mom she told me that she put him there and I could have killed her.Then she said"Go and get him and I'll show you that rufus(my plastic dog) and sparky(neighbor's real dog) are not the same dog!".So I went and got him and my mom drove me up to the neighbor's house and their dog was sitting in his kennel and my plastic dog was still in my hands.I'm 12 now and still have that toy dog some where in my closet lol.

I remember thinking dogs naturally ate cats.

I believed that the natural heirarchy of nature in this regard was that mice ate cheese, cats ate mice, and that dogs ate cats. And this, of course, was why dogs chased cats and cats were afraid of dogs.

When I was about 11 yrs old I asked my mom how kittens were born and she said "through their mother's mouth". For many years I believed it and thought nothing about it. I was well into my forties when I found out the truth through a friend.

My mom's friend had a Himalayan. Being a cat owner myself, I had never seen a flat- faced cat that way before, and I asked her why he was that way. She said it was because he ran into the backyard fence when he was outside as a kitten. Every time we went over to her house, I would ask the cat, "And how's your face?"

I used to always color cats either blue or orange. This is because my friend had an orange tabby and because Tom, from Tom and Jerry, looked downright BLUE in a lot of the cartoons!

When I would undress to go into the shower, for some reason my dog seemed to follow me around and try to play with me more than he normally would, which led me to believe that dogs had a perverted side. When i realized he just wanted to smell my upper arms, which were usually covered by my shirt, i got over that fear.

My older brother told me all dogs came from Ohio. You knew because they had an "O" under their tails. I believed him far too long!

I used to believe until I was about 15 that if you had a scrape or cut or a wound, if you'd let your dog lick the wound it would be better than any medicine because my dad had told me that dog saliva is better than medicine. Besides that St. Lazarus guy from church had let dogs lick his wounds...

When I was little i would never change in front of my pets because i thought that they would tell there other animal friends and keep it going until an animal told a parrot and the parrot would say it out loud and tell everyone at school that my animal saw me naked.

When I was little, I believed that if you wanted your cat to have siamese twins, you had to squeeze it's stomach when it was pregnant.
