how to understand the “That's what I thought you said”?

"I'm Selby, the only talking dog in the world!" Pinky squawked again.
"That's what I thought you said," Selby said. "Now, you aren't Selby, I am. So shut your beak before you give away my secret and ruin my life forever."

    There is some context missing here. The dialog says that Pinky squawked the same thing AGAIN. So before that, Selby probably told Pinky to repeat what he said because he wasn't sure that he had understood correctly. "That's what I thought you said" means "Okay, I understood you correctly the first time. It was not a mistake on my part."
