Pets born on Leap Day


A Leap Day baby can have a parent who is also a Leap Day baby.
They can even have a sibling, or any other relative, who was born on February 29th.

What about pets? Humans are not the only things born on Leap Day!


Maddy, born February 29th 2004

Member Sue Barratt of Wigston, Leics, England, UK born 1952
and her Leap Day Dog

Maddy was born Leap Day (2004) which makes her extra special to me
being a Leap Day Baby myself (1952). She lives up to her name MAD
by name and MAD by nature!

The reasoning behind her name is, she was from a litter of just two. Her
brother was called Robin Hood and Maddy was naturally called Maid Marion.
According to legend Robin Hood had a pet name for Maid Marion which was
Maddy. It also means, in Old English, My Lady, which she is.

and his Leap Day Dog

My dog, Fang, was also born on Leap Year Day, just like me!
2-29-00 is his and 2-29-88 is mine. Is that not weird!?

Boston was born 29th February 2012. He is a rescue dog and came to his 'forever'
home at around 5 months old. He is a crossbreed (Jack Russell Terrier/Hungarian
Vizsla). He is a registered Therapet and very much a puppy at heart!
