The children in my husbands family were fascinated by dogs since they had none while growing up, so his parents told them that if they watched a dog while he was "doing his business" they would get pink eye! To this day, my husband still gets nervous if he sees our dogs going to the bathroom.
I used to believe that If you dont talk to your dog it doesnt learn how to bark until my mum asked why I was talking to the dog :s
When my second cousin was younger my grandfather used to sit on the lid of the toilet and put the shaggy rug by the sink over his knee. He then used to open the door a crack and call my cousin and his sisters over to pet the carpet, calling it the 'dog', to see if they would actually believe him. His older sisters didn't fall for it, but for about three years he thought my grandpa had a shaggy white dog that lived in his bathroom that only came out when my grandpa called it.
Years later at my grandpa's funeral my cousin told the story as part of his eulogy-the priests were actually laughing hysterically.
When I was little I some how got the idea that cats only pooed and did not do any weeing. When I told my mum that cats could not urinate, she though it was funny and told me that it was totally wrong that cats do not wee and if a cat could not do a wee, they will eventually burst into a big gross explosion of urine, blood and guts.
A cousin was at my house one day to see our two cats. She said that she wanted a cat. I told her that if they had babies, we would give her one. She told me,"Two girl cats can't have babies!" I thought they were just like on Jurassic Park, where the dinosaurs changed sexes and had babies!
When I was little, our cat had kittens, which she kept for a while in a cardboard box that we provided for her. Since I heard the kittens collectively called a litter of kittens, I called the box a litter box. Several people laughed at me at the time for that, and I had no idea why. Later when I learned what a litter box is, I found it very curious that cats have litters of kittens, but a litter box is what cats poo in. In fact, I STILL find it curious.
One day when i was 5 or 6 i was hangin out at my grandpa's house, being so young and not really knowing about baldness i ask him "what happened to your hair?"...He told me that the dog ate it, "THE DOG?" i said "HE ATE IT???". "yup" grampa said.. needless to say i never looked at that dog. Even today. all i can picture is Duke chewin on grandpa's hair!
i used to beleive that my dog was made of cheese because she was that cheese color and i tried to dip her in fondue and eat her.
When I being Potty Trained we had two cats, Achllies and Troy. Well, one day I went outside and pulled off my training pants and started going poop. I thought I was a cat I guess, because when my mom saw me and sked what I was doing I responded, "Kitties poop outside!"
My mom hates it, but the rest of my family loves telling it and I always tease her about hating it.
I also would kiss the oldest, Achillies, goodnight cause I thought he was my Grampa.
I used to think that girl dogs were called meters and male dogs were called ometers because that's what my parents called them. Turns out that they made up those silly names for dogs while they were dating and it kind of stuck. Problem was, I didn't know it wasn't a slang word for dog ... like pooch or mutt. Had something to do with O'Cedar Mops commercial or something. LOL!
When I was very little, my parents told me that cats didn't like water. I thought that this meant they didn't even drink water. So I was surprised when I saw Drummer, our cat at the time, drinking some water from his food/water dish.
I used to believe that dogs and cats could make babies together !!
when I was 4, I used to believe I was a dog.
When i was little I had a dog and everytime i would hear a dog bark i thouht that the dogs thought that they were speaking english in there mind but when they tried to talk it came out as a bark and not english.
i have a toy dog from the 'beanie baby' make i managed to convince someone in my class it was a real living dog. i told all my mates and thay laughed when they realized the kid had actually fallen for it. it wasn't until 2 years later when we were in year 6 that he asked me how my 'dog' was i replied "he's not real you know i do have a beanie baby but not a real dog!" i knew that 'said 'the kid'.
yeah right sure you did!
I used to call grey cats "pussy willows" because I belived that a pussy willow plant grows into a grey kitten. I remember getting a pussy willow plant because I wanted a cat!
When I was three or four my mom took the family cat to the doctor. The doctor looked the kitty over and said "you cat has a virus" I missheard this as " your cat is a virus" And promplty yelled at the doctor "thats not a virus thats my kitty!!"
i saw our tom cat back up and spray the grape vine one day, i believed and informed my younger brother, that the cat was spraying for bugs, so we couldn't eat any grapes down there because of poison. i guess i was sorta right. lol
i was sure if laid down with my dog and could breathe in rhythm with her that i would turn into a dog. i thought this would work with any animal. (it doesn't, i spent hours trying...lol)
When I was alittle girl, I used to think that when two dogs were humping, that one was just trying to "push the other one along" or hurry him up. So one day when my family was at a reunion, I saw one of our dogs "pushing" the other one, and I yelled,real loud, "Don't push so hard Freddie, Jannies coming!" Mom got quite a few comments
