Thanks Kalacreek, we're only going to Toowoomba to get him, but he'll be traveling from Dalby so he'll still have long trip to ours. I'm sorry to hear about your friends loss that would have been awful. It sounds silly but I didn't realise how vulnerable they are, it's almost like bringing a newborn human baby home! We'll talk to the vet/breeder about him spending some time at the markets with us and the wet sand. But I have asked my sister to puppy sit on market days until we can take him with us which she was more than happy to do Thanks for your help!
