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.

I used to believe I would one day marry my cat. I was completely serious about it, and even started designing little cat vails.

I used to think that cats with pink pads on the bottoms of their paws were girls and cats with black or brown pads were boys.

I used to believe cats rubbed against you to be affectionate. I then learned that they are actually marking you as their own. I am glad my cats don't pee on me.

My younger brothers and sister used to believe that dogs ate cats and they were mortal enimies of each other. (at least i finaly explained to them that dogs did not eat cats and that they could be the best of friends).

My family bought a dog when I was 5 years old. I didn't really believe that a dog was a different species. I thought there was a little person (and I mean little, because we had a miniature schaunzer) inside a furry suit. Sometimes, I would look into his eyes and think, "I know you're in there."

My grandfather and grandmother owned a daschund sausage dog. When we used to visit, I would sit and hear stories before my parents woke up. By the time I was eight, I believed that this dog had opened the bowling for England in the ashes, caught and bowled Bradman, been parachuted into Germany, stealing the plans that lead to D-day and biting Hitler, and had finally swam the channel home.Until I got back to school and boasted to friends. I look forward to having grand-children of my own.

We had a neighbor with a little white dog and when I asked what kind of dog he was, she said "It's a toy poodle." WOW! But it was so REAL looking!!! I was totally blown away! I kept surreptitiously searching for the switch to make the dog turn on and off, and trying to figure out where was the battery compartment, and was disappointed that they didn't have these things in the Christmas catalogs. I might have even started to suspect that our neighbor had been just fooling, but then one day I saw some other tiny dog, and I wondered: Could this by chance be another of those amazing toys? So I asked that dog's owner "Is that a toy dog?" and the answer was YES! Having received this further confirmation, I went on for YEARS thinking "toy dogs" were robots that looked absolutely life-like. This really was mind boggling and I spent a lot of time contemplating this amazing technological breakthrough.

When I was 4 or 5, we had a dog named cinnamon. She had been sent to a friend`s for awhile because we wanted some puppies.Well, my mom made some really delicious cookies and I asked what they were flavoured with. I, not knowing where cinnamon was, was mortified when mommy said "Cinnamon."

When I was a kid some boy told me that if you threw a towel over your dog and talked to it, he'll repeat your words. Needless to say I found out the hard way what he told me wasn't really true.

Years ago, before my grandparent's dog, Rufus, was neutered, he was pretty frisky. One day, when my sister was about ten years old, she was playing with Rufus when he all of a sudden started getting "jiggy" with her leg. Since she didn't know that facts of life, she just told Dad "Daddy, Rufus wants to rumba!"
