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.
Member William Kennedy of Louisiana, USA born 1988.
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!?"
