When I was in the second grade a friend had a dog called an American Eskimo, a tiny little toy size weighing maybe ten pounds. I didn't understand that the American Eskimo was actually a Spitz, not the kind of Eskimo dog that pulls sleds and id a lot bigger.My friend was also confused and thought her dog was a real Eskimo sled dog so we were amazed that these tiny dogd could work like that.We decided the explanation was that the Eskimos must use huge teams of ten pound huskies to do thr job, I always imagined maybe 100 tiny dogs hitched up to a sled.I only figured out the truth when the teacher showed us a video still very confused as to why the little dogs were also called Eskimo.Only as an adult did I learn that the little dogs were actually spitz from Germany and they changed the name during the war.I can still re my silly image of 100 tiny dogs pulling a huge load thru the icr and snow!

As a youngster and under the misdirection of a manipulative older sibling, I believed dogs were all boys and cats were all girls. If a cat and dog had a family, the litter would be a mix of boy puppies and girl kittens. A couple of years later my sister shook my world by pointing out next door's dog was female!

I used to believe that you could just choose what gender your dog or cat was - like if you said it was a boy, it was male, and if you said it was a girl, it was female.

Until I was 10 (Im 12 now), I used to believe all dogs were female and all cats were male (It's the other way around, strange isnt it?). I even drew a picture of a female dog showing her mate (a cat) that she had his children, and her children were not mixed, the boy babies were kittens and the girl babies were puppies. And also, in that picture, the parents and the babies had there own blankets (The mother dog's blanket was red, the father cat's blanket was blue, the puppies had pink blankets, the kittens had blue blankets.) And the babies were in what appeared to be a dog or cat bed. I also drew a picture of a female dog and a male cat getting married. My sister, on the other hand used to believe all dogs were boys and all cats were girls thanks to some cartoons. She even drew a picture of a dog, a cat, and their babies just like mine. Except the cat was the mother.

When I was younger me and my two sisters used to believe in an imaginary dog. It looked like the dog off Dr.Who and it used to chase us in our bedroom and we had to climb up to the top of our bunk beds to runaway from it. I can remember once when we all were sat on our bedroom floor, then we sensed that the robot dog was coming so me and my sisters ran to our bunk bed ladder and i was the last one to climb up it, on the 2nd step the dog grabbed hold of my foot with its mouth. Then it began to drag me away and so my sisters started throwing toys at it and that is all we can remember. It used to come nearly everyday and we all can remember climbing on to the window still and throwing toys at it. It was probably all our imagination but it felt so real and we all remember it.

My dad sold purebred hunting dogs. One customer came to buy one, and he was really impressed with my little mongrel dog. My dad said, “Mary, this man said he would give you $50 for your dog.”

I said, “Okay, but what does a dog want with money?”

When people said "cats have nine lives", I thought it meant when a cat did something that could kill them, they could come back to life (or "regenerate" like on "Doctor Who") and they could this eight more times before they finally died.

This was further fueled because it was often used in cartoons about cats.

When I was a child, I used to believe that the idiom "raining cats and dogs" meant that there were really animals falling from the sky, so I didn't understand when my parents told me that having a dog was too expensive !

I once thought that when cats curled up into a ball to fall asleep, that they were then "stuck" like that for at least a few minutes, which is why they had to stretch when they woke up. I also thought that when a cat was asleep curled up in this way, they looked just like Russian hats. I thought that since my cat was curled in a ball fast asleep, I had just enough time to put her on top of my head and turn her into a Russian hat. My cat put a quick stop to this notion by immediately running down my back with her claws out.

I had a dog (yellow lab named Luci) that was sick. The vet prescribed Prednizone for her. When I was told she needed this I was mortified because she had been spayed (traumatized me!!) and that no animal had been near her pregnant zone!! Imagine my embarrassment when everyone laughed hysterically at me. :(

I used to think that Kittens and Cats were completely separate animals, by watching cartoons, I got the impression that Kittens were cute lovable creatures and Cats are viscous monsters. I always used to say "I want a Kitten, but I don't want a Cat".
