I'm just shy of 6' and redheaded to boot , but I STILL get comments about Kharma walking me . . . even as she's being quiet and walking with a loose leash.

I'm 5'6, and walk "a big fluffy black dog" so yes, I get comments on how "she's walking you".

I had a conversations with someone about it the other day. I actually shy away from the idea of owning certain breeds due to me being small. I would love to own so many breeds but I often wonder how I would manage to pick them up if they had hurt themselves.

Paige, that's a concern of mine too with some of the giant breeds that I love so much. I'm pretty strong but I would not have an easy time lifting 150 pounds or more of dead weight into a vehicle large enough to transport such a dog...

When I would walk Anko people would cross the street to pass us, maybe they were thinking it.

Strider is up to my waist now. I'm 5'9" and 125 lbs, mostly people just tell us we look alike.

Oh I know I'm strong. But again 150 pounds of dead weight would be rather difficult for me. I think I may have to stick with the medium-large sized dogs and avoid the extra large ones I love so much.



I also really like how I can just scoop up Spanky and give him kiss attacks whenever I want.

I hadn't really thought about that extremity, Paige, but I can pick Kharma up - whether she wants me to or not, lol. And when she doesn't want to be lifted, she either goes to extreme squirm or completely limp

But, with a large, injured dog, you're going to be moving it onto a coat or blanket or something that you can either pull or get someone else to help you carry that way.

I'm 5'7 and 126 pounds and this one guy asked me if my dogs were walking me... He passed me on the road. I had a 45 pound dog, and a 86 pound dog. Ug. It made me so mad. Its only 136 pounds of dog. My new dog coupler is so much easier if it would stay together!!! I'm thinking about taking it back, it has broken once, and I had to return it!
