    I just took my pup for a carry to experience a few things and I have decided I definately need more arms!
    Otto will be 8 weeks tomorrow so he's still having to be carried everywhere. I took him for a carry along a main road and into a field with sheep to show him the outside world. He was happy to stay still on the journey out as he's still a bit unsure about traffic expecially big lorries but as soon as I got into the field he decided the smells and sights were far too interesting to stay up in my arms and started wriggling like anything to get down. He calmed down once we were back alond side the road and had a crazy ten minutes tearing around the garden when he gets back.
    I think I can safely say he likes the look of the great out doors. I just can't wait until he can go there on his own 4 paws. He's heavy enough already, I dread to think what carrying him will be like in 3 weeks! :eek:

    Hiya

    The furthest we have been with Nelly pug so far is the vets in the car for her first jab. She was surrounded by the biggest dogs ever including a massive Rottie! I think I will take her for a carry out to the high street later.

    Hope you are getting on OK. :)

    It's great that he's excited about the world around him.

    I have been looking at this sort of thing: The Outward Pet Sling only £28.99
    Not sure what Otto would think of it or how long it would hold him for. He's currently putting on 100g a day!

    I made one of those for Henrick when he was a tiddler, really hurt my back but it was much easier than carrying him in my arms.

    Some great suggestions there, thank you. I think I'd better do some experimenting!
    Isn't it amazing how many more people smile and talk to you when you have a puppy in your arms!

    I was going to suggest a pushchair. You could put a harness on hm and strap him in so he can't jump out.
    I did this with my exs jrt when he hurt his leg and wasn't alowed to walk far.
