    I do like Jet, that's going on the list! I might pick a few I really like then see what he is like when he gets here :)

    Also, would love some opinions. Would taking him away on a trip a week after he gets here be too much for him? It's the easter long weekend and I would really like to take the chance to go for a drive to a really nice beach, but it is about 5 hours away. I won't go if it will be too much for him, but I would camp where dogs are allowed so he would be with me 24/7. I haven't had a pup this little in a long time!
    Honestly it would be a great bonding time as long as he has had at least his first 2 sets of shots

    Is that so the OP can say "I can't wait for karma to bite you in the backside" to people they don't like?

    He is an Australian Koolie. They are kind of like the Australian Kelpie or a short coated Border Collie - they are a herding breed and can be used to work cattle, sheep, ducks, etc. they aren't a AKC regained breed so there aren't as many of them around, but there is a registry ad they can be put on the sporting register so you can do agility and herding etc. I would really like to have a go at herding and/or flyball when he is a bit older.

    Loving the name suggestions! I actually don't mind Muddy as a name lol!

    I don't know why but when I looked at that handsome pup the name Dooley came to mind.

    How old is he going to be when you get him? When I got Remington, the vet said to avoid taking her to places where she could smell other (unknown) dogs poop, as there is a virus that is potentially fatal to puppies. A week after her second set of shots, I was allowed to take her everywhere I wanted too. However, we do live in completely different countries, so maybe it isn't a worry there...? It is called "Canine Parvovirus".

    Dad has suggested Rusty which I like too!

    Yes we have Parvovirus here as well. He will be a bit over eight weeks, and have had his first shot. He will be starting puppy classes as soon as I get him, they only require them to have had their first shot.

    Another name idea, I thought of it earlier then dismissed it, but dad suggested it again. In working for a the mining company Rio Tinto. The other worker here called his dog Rio, I could call mine Tinto ha ha! It's actually growing on me!

    So far front runners are rusty, dusty, rev and Tinto!
