We used to believe that if you saw an ambulance it was terrible bad luck and the only way to neutralise it was to hold your collar until you saw a four legged animal. Several times this made me late for school.
I used to believe if you pulled out a cat's whisker, the cat would die.
i used to think that white dog pooh that you used to see a lot was what little white scottie dogs did
I used to believe that all cats were girls and all dogs were boys. Don't ask me where kittens and puppies came from!!
My sister's friend thought cats were just small dogs when she was younger.
i used to believe that when a dog grewn big enough he could turn into a horse.
When i would see a really big dog i would tell my mum: "big dog almost horse". My mum kept telling me the dog wasn't, but i just new he would! i kept this going till i was about 6 years old.
When I was little I used to believe that dogs hated water but that was all my mom would give them so I would always poor coke and milk into the water bowl thinking my mom wouldn't notice.
As Hebrew speakers, me and my younger sister watched tv, in the age I knew English and she didn't. So in some place at the show, she asked me in what language the show is. when I told her it's in english, she said "yeah? so why the dog's barking in Hebrew?" :)
I used to believe that my cat was really just a boy trapped inside the cat's body by a curse. It made me sad because I used to think if the boy's spirit was freed, my cat would be gone and never love me again. I know that's wierd...
when i was little, my father told me that Frankfurt sausage-like dogs once have long legs, and the reason why they have short legs now is because they ran too much.
When I was younger, I used to think that barney was a giant purple and green puppy!
i used to believe that all cats were female and all dogs were male
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.
When i was little i was so scared of cats, because i taught the turned in to tigers if you saw them.
I used to believe I could communicate with dogs and cats in their languages. I still do. My husband even calls me Doctor Dolittle.
I used to believe that the expression "The room was literally not big enough to swing a cat" referred to the swinging of an actual live cat by the tail, at arms length, completely around one's body. I have come to understand, with some disapointment, that the "cat" is actually a "cat-o-nine tails" -- a type of whip used for dicipline aboard ships, whose quarters were often insufficient to swing the device with the sought after level of vigor.
i always belived that my dogs were actually people inside a dog costume... so i wouldnt do anything bad around them... i wouldnt even change or go to the bathroom around them!!!
I used to think that my dog was the "BOOGIE MONSER" because he would always go and sleep under my bed!
When we were little our parents got us a dog, a big German Shepherd. It was kinda mean and ended up biting our babysitter, so my mom took it back to the pound. When she got home she told us a police officer came into the pound looking for a police dog, and he adopted Pepper. I actually believed this until I was age 15 when I finally realized she was just trying to make us feel better!
My mum would always talk to our cats and ask them if they wanted food, then she would give them some and they'd eat it. I thought that when you were an adult you could actually understand animals and they would talk to you like the ones in movies.
