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 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.
I use to believe if you didn't pay attention to a cat it would eat you when you were sleeping.
When I was about five years old I had a small plastic jack russel terrier with a green collar on(I still have it lol)And our neighbors had a jack russel totally identical green collar and all! And I only saw him when we left to go somewhere or when we came back from where ever we went(they were our nearest neighbors and since we live in a rural area they were about a quarter of a mile away)And I always thought that my plastic dog and their real dog were the same dog!I thought that when we went somewhere he became real and rushed over to their house and sat and waited for us.I was scared to death of my toy dog and when ever I went to bed I would just stare at him sitting on the bookshelf with my other toy dogs(I had alot more than one lol)terrified.And one morning when I woke up he was sitting on the night stand staring at me(I didn't know it at the time but my mom knew how dreadfully afraid I was of the thing and she put him there for mean-ness)I immediately started sobbing and ran to mom she told me that she put him there and I could have killed her.Then she said"Go and get him and I'll show you that rufus(my plastic dog) and sparky(neighbor's real dog) are not the same dog!".So I went and got him and my mom drove me up to the neighbor's house and their dog was sitting in his kennel and my plastic dog was still in my hands.I'm 12 now and still have that toy dog some where in my closet lol.
Becuase of Lady and the Tramp(The movie) I thought all little dogs were femals and big dogs were males.
Thank god to animal planet for setting me straight
My mom told me whiskers helped cats keep their balance when I asked what they were for. Due to this, I thought if I ever cut my cat's whiskers off or even accidentally plucked one out, they would go around bumping into stuff and be mad at me forever.
I used to believe all dogs were boys and all cats were girls.
