Some people prefer diamonds, others rubies. As for us here at Dogtown, we prefer the more unusual Opal. The name opal is thought to be derived from the Sanskrit upala, meaning “precious stone”. With its many colored flashing lights, an opal is so distinctive that everyone can identify it. In the Middle Ages, the opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. It was also said to confer the power of invisibility if wrapped in a fresh bay leaf and held in the hand. Opals are magical aren’t they?!

What would you stay if we told you that we have an equally magical and infinitely more beautiful gem in our possession? Sleek, elegant and graceful, our Opal definitely steals the show and is a sight to behold. Part Husky, her exotic, wolf-like appearance and friendly disposition is immensely appealing. She makes friends so easily with both the human and fur-kind, it’s a wonder we’ve managed to keep this treasure under wraps this long! Like the Andamooka Opal, our girl is a rare find and only the best will do for her. She simply loves cuddles and does not say no to extra kisses.

With her beautiful white hair (think Daenerys Targaryen and all that fire and ice), Opal attracts many a handsome fella along the way. Couple that with her playfulness and agility, she really knows how to keep the boys on their toes! We can only imagine the chaos that would ensue should she decide to pull a Khaleesi move and emerge from the ashes in all her splendor with her (toy) dragons in attendance! Not a male heart will stand a chance!

Opal now needs to venture out on the back of Drogon, her most trustworthy dragon, in search of her forever home. So clear out your backyards folks, visitors of the magnificent kind might just be making a pit-stop soon. Because really, who wouldn’t want this gem of a girl in their lives?
