Well, I think my dog would like it, but I can't try it because she's 50 pounds of gangly legs, tail, and muscle (built like a sturdy greyhound). I can pick her up and she doesn't complain or struggle, but it's not like I could cuddle her like a baby. She'll try to lie on my lap while I watch television but there's too much of her to fit She looks at me disapprovingly while she tries to curl up on my lap, because she can't decide which part should be on me.

Our 7 lb Chihuahua lets me carry her like a baby. I started doing it when she was a puppy to let her know WE were the boss. She does not have the total temper of a Chihuahua (thank goodness) but a lil comes out every now and then. I can pick her up and flip her on her back and rub her tummy and say, "Nina be a baby" and she will. Pathetic I know. She also sleeps in our bed, between us, under the covers. REALLY pathetic. She is a bum this week as the 9 yo is home w/ the flu so Nina is always by her curled up right now. Even the kids can carry her like a baby.

My husband can carry our beagle mix like a baby (he's just a tad too heavy for me to do that!). He loves to be carried that way... he leans his head on DH's shoulder and usually falls asleep pretty quickly in that position.

My labs are 105 and 80 lbs. I'm not sure they'd fit in a baby carriage let alone carrying them like a baby!!

She is an APBT puppy, she's about 8lbs or so right now. My mastiff far bigger now, 50lbs, can't carry her around anymore but she is still a lap dog. I might show her soon and see how she does, hopefully decent. The APBT won't be shown until late spring/summer but I know she'll do awesome, no doubts.

You got a new puppy?! She is adorable! We are thinking about getting one more, from the same litter my father and sister's puppies are from. We might get this little male that's white with a red nose and green eyes! I know you said that the white puppies can have some health issues, but we would gladly deal with that. He really is the most beautiful puppy!

OMG! You have a 105 pound Lab?! I thought Labs were only 60-70 pounds or so! Well, I don't know. My Chocolate Lab was really big as well, he was around 90 pounds. My black Lab was only 65 pounds though.

Thanks. She is great, of course who doesn't think that about a new pup. She is chocolate brindle, red nose, its hard to see the brindle much in that picture.

Oh I didn't know they had pups. At least I didn't remember maybe? Mine came from over there actually, I don't think she is used to this cold lol. I'll be getting another around march/april, then I'm all puppied out. No more for sure, no matter what!

Do you have pics of their pups or the one you might get? How old are they? Maybe you posted this before and I probably missed it since I haven't been on. I have white dogs and they don't have health problems. My white males grand mother was white/rednose with yellow/gold eyes.

My doggie is 30lbs and a Cocker Mix....and after having back surgery I try to be very careful about who and what I lift. My dog is a little iffy with being carried. He gets nervous and and latches on to my shoulders as tight as he can. I can never lay him on his back and carry him like a baby because then if he cant see anything he gets all worked up. However, when I am sitting down he loves to be held like a baby to have his belly scratched!

The dogs are too big to carry like a baby, but my cat loves it!

We have one dog that likes to hug. She'll sit next to you on the sofa and suddenly put her paws around your neck and cuddle in for a hug!
