My mom told me that cats had secret pockets... and I believed her. I would pet the cats until they got annoyed with me, feeling around for their pockets.
I used to believe that, while we were potty-training our dog, he was able to read the newspaper we always put him on to train to pee on that and not the house, since he always used to look down, and, sometimes I even asked him what the news was. Let's just say he looked at me, and then at the floor, and I took it to mean that the news that day wasn't very good. I was only 7.
When I was about 9 we had a cat named Bob and we fed him Iams cat food. For the longest time I thought he was eating "Lambs".
My 3 year old son was sobbing his heart out one day. I asked him what was wrong. He said our dog, a male, was laying an egg and he didn't want puppies. He actually had vomited up knickers.
I used to think that claws were only for cats, while dogs just had paws. I also thought that dogs only had round ears, and cats only had triangular ears.
So, we had a dog named Rodin when I was a kid, and he was doing well until he got cancer. The only reason I didn’t kiss him goodbye before he was put down, was because I though cancer was contagious and didn’t want to contract it.
I had the IQ of a toothbrush. 😞
I used to believe that greyhounds chssed after a loaf of bread.
I used to believe that doberman pincers were called dogman snippers
I thought that the difference bewteen male and female dogs were their ears, male dogs had pointy ears and female dogs had ears that drooped to the side.
When I was 7 I believed that when I got very old I would turn into a cat---being a woman. When men got very old I thought they would turn into dogs!
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 used to believe that all cats were female and all dogs were male, even though my friend had a female dog and I eventually got a male cat.

I used to think "Dachshund" was pronounced "Dashhound". I called them Dash Hounds until I was 12 or so.

I used to believe that old black Bananna skins were dogs lips that had fallen off.
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.
When I was 5 I thought the dogs and cats we saw around the neighbourhood weren't grown up, and that adults dogs and cats stood as tall as adult humans.
I used to think that my dog had a camera hidden on top of his head, so his previous owners were always watching us.
