      Thanks! I was looking for names that were like yellow so this one fit the bill. It's also a pretty flower. It's fun coming up with different dog names. If we ever get another dog, I'll have plenty to choose from.

      Claudia, you are a volcano of ideas! You put so much creativity in your work. I had a client with a dog called Jonquil and never realized it was a gemstone color.

      Such a fun and cool article! I love the layout as well. Really easy and fun to read. I don't currently have any dogs with gemstone names. I do have a boarded horse named Ruby though!
