    Big boy Ruggles can jump in the back of the Rav no problem, and he can jump in the back of the Land Crusier, but I don't want him to--he could hurt himself. So in the Land Crusier I lift his front paws on to the back, then hoist his rump into the suv!

    This is how we lift Liz since she is big and heavy. For Amy I will try the one arm supporting the chest and the other behind the rump. Right now, we've been lifting under her arms, but she arches her back so all four legs are splayed out at odd angles. Her eyes bug out and she snorts like we are killing her! It's to be avoided at all costs!

    That's how we pick up Mabel, too. She's 45 pounds.

    My guys are in the 60lb range. They can't (or won't) jump into the truck so I have to pick them up. I grab from front between the legs and then under the rear and move quickly cause they don't like it. To make it easier on all of us, I got rid of my truck, so they get to ride in mommy's car till I decide what I want. (Wasn't really fond of the truck anyway!)

    When I switched the dogs to raw, I would weigh the dogs every week... which requires me carrying a dog while I step on our bathroom scale. I do the @Sherry way. Now, the trick is trying to see the numbers on the scale while carrying a 60lb bulldog.

    I got Bullied and loving it!
