I used to believe dogs ate cats
My sister was convinced that when she grew up she was going to have puppies instead of babies
When I was little, I used to believe that my pets were actually robots who were spies for my mom. Whenever I did stupid stuff, I would bribe them so they wouldn't tell on me.
***I used to belive that if you barked while you where saying something to a dog, they could understand you. i never really tried it because i felt dumb.
And i also believed that if you just barked that you where saying something to them so by there reaction you could tell if what you said was good or bad.
When we were 9 years old I told my friends who were afraid of dogs that steam comes out of your ears when you're afraid and that dogs will chase you if they see the steam. When we were 25 one of those friends was covering her ears, I asked why, and she pointed to a dog. I laughed at her for days.
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 i was a little girl, i thought that cats were females and dogs were males. i was always confused when watching Tom and Jerry!
Once when I was a kid and visited some relatives, they told me they used to have a dog but had to put him to sleep because he got sick, and they were worried he might attack their son. I thought that they were worried they might have to kill their kid too if he got infected...
When I was about 8, while walking in the woods with my best friend, we heard a dog barking. She whispered in a scared voice that it was a German Shepherd. I gasped, not knowing what a German Shepherd was. I assumed it was some type of freaky monkey/monster combination.
When I was younger I thought that my little dog was going to someday grow up, grow arms and legs, and marry me.
I once told my younger sister when I was about seven that if you smile at a dog, it thinks you're frowning at it and if you frown at it, it thinks you're smiling at it. She went around frowning at our dog for years.
I use to believe that cats and dogs were the same species; cats were girls and dogs were boys.
As a child I believed that cats, when they died, became owls and always accompanied you.
Once I was told that cats see humans as just more cats. I still have no idea what that meant, but it tricked my mind into thinking that from a cat's-eye view, humans were all giant cats wearing clothes and walking upright. Then I started believing for some reason that if humans WERE cats, all the men and boys would have brown fur and green eyes, and all the women and girls would have white fur and blue eyes. Dunno where THAT came from.
I used to believe that when each family was out of the house, my dog Nikki, and my godmother's dog and cat Sasha and Bandit would get together and have parties where they would do nothing but dance all night long. I always thought Bandit would win the prize for the best moves.
I had watched an episode of some show, I think it was The Wonder Years, where they had to get a dog "fixed". Of course, being a family program they didn't say what "fixed" meant, and I didn't know what it was, except that on the show the dog kept barking all night before they got him "fixed" and then afterward he didn't. So, at my tender age, I thought that getting your dog "fixed" meant that the vet would make it so the dog couldn't bark any more by taking out its vocal chords or something. I believed this for a couple years, too.
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.
When I was 3 or 4 my dad told me that if I touched a cat and I din`t wash my hands right away my thongue would become blue and I won`t be able to speak. I realized that this wasn`t true when I was about 12. Guess what, now I have a cat and when I touch it nothing happens!
When I was younger, my dad took us all to Sam's Club to shop for a tent so we could go camping. I didn't understand the concept of a miniature display tent, so I asked him why all the tents at Sam's were so small. He answered, "Well, it's about time we bought the cat a new tent." I honestly believed for quite some time that my dad had bought the tent for the cat and would wander around the house at night trying to catch the cat camping.
I used to believe that my cat Oliver used to be an alien from outer space because his left eye was green, and his right eye was blue!
