    Balance is the best since they are tipsy topsy. LOL I always do one arm between both the front and back, and against my chest to even out the weight. Tyson is HUGE. When he was smaller, I could pick him up like a baby, he'd put his paws on my shoulders and Id pick him up under his butt. I can't do that anymore, he'd break my back! But for getting in and out of the truck, def need the hubs on one end, and me on the other.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    The best way to pick a bully up is, as a few have said, is put one hand between the front legs from the front and cradle the chest in your hand, and the other hand from the rear between his rear legs cradling the under their bum, fingers toward the belly.

    @Davidh, not to sound stupid but doesn't this put his boy parts right in your hand and puts them at risk of getting crushed? I hold by the front legs by the chest and cradle behind the back legs. I really don't pick them up too often but I don't want to do it wrong and risk hurting them.

    @brutus77 on a male you just kind of cup his testicles in your hand, so not to put pressure on them. I guess it's easy for me, having a fair large hand.

    Thank you Rosalie. His cute self is huge. He's always the biggest bully at the vet, LOL He is slightly overweight, but not by much. Vet wants him down at least another 5lbs she said... 10lbs if we could. But he's always been big... bigger built, and very defined chest. My handsome boy.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Hee hee.. he sure does. He looks like a cartoon bully, lol. OH, and like David said, yeah... cup the goods... or go by the side inside leg. I lean his entire body against mine... but this is only to get him in & out of the tub -- I for sure couldn't do anything longer or higher. LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.
