Safe for a puppy to carry weight?

Hey guys!

Anna is 4.5 months old now and about 42lbs. I'm a huge huge hiker and it is my hope that one day Anna will be able to happily go just as far as I can. I have slowly built her up to 6 miles, always careful not to push her, though it seems like she is never tired.

During my work week I will walk her for 40 minutes while doing, light obedience. I will also play fetch for what seems like hours **never ending fetch**

She has a back pack that I put 2 filled bottles of water in (one on each side to even out the weight) just looking for a way to tire her out. My question is- I know she is still growing, is this safe? She doesn't seem to be bothered by it at all
