  1. Happy Leap Year, Dakota! that is a horribly sad thing to say you won’t be around for the NEXT leap year….but I know what you mean!! I hate when our pets age..it is HORRIBLY sad! I think I love my pets more than most humans!!

    • Wow Lee!!! I sure do plan on being around for the next Leap Year! BOL! I just meant I didn’t want to wait for lovely Eva for ANOTHER 4 years!!! BOL! I’m not planning on going ANYWHERE!!!

    I’m blushed. I’m speechless. I’m honoured, Dakota!!

    Let me take a deep breath first… Well…

    Are you sure you’re READY???

    Over the moon now,

    PeeS: How strange, Caren! I just told a friend about this Irish Legend just about three hours ago and she said she has to tell her daughter when she is home as her girl has already been waiting for the proposal for some donkey years.

    I love this post! What a sweet surprise and it almost made me fall off my chair.

    Have you watched the movie, the ‘Leap Year’? It’s hilarious and sweet, I love it.

  13. Hey Dakota,

    So sorry I won’t be proposing to you buddy (only cos I’m a boy and I like girls!) – but I’m very impressed you know of this tradition – my Mum was talking about it and was surprised to discover her friends here in the US didn’t know of this – I think it’s a great idea!!

    Sadly I’ve not had any proposals today, but I don’t know if I could really commit just to one girlie anyway? Tee Hee

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hi Snoopy my buddy!
      First! I am sooo happy your comment didn’t go into spam this time! Geeze!!
      Also…did you enter my birthday give-away yesterday? If not…get over there!!
      Yep my Mom has known of this tradition for quite some time!

      I bet there are LOTS of girl doggies who would like to date you Snoopy but I sure don’t blame you for not wanting to be tied down. (or leashed) BOL!!

      Thanks for stopping by my buddy!
      Barks and licks and manly love, Dakota

  14. I had no idea! Thanks for sharing, and good luck with Eva 😉

    • Hi Cynthia! Yep! It is! Barks and licks and love, Dakota
