Rocket your signature says she's 8 weeks.. if she's only 8 weeks then is she even heavy enough to stress those joints anyway?

That's good advice. Thanks

MaggieRoseLee When my puppies are small, if I hold them in close, they don't mind being held. As they get older and heavier you'll probably just find it easier to let her take them herself.

Picking her up

I live in an apartment on the second floor so whenever I wanna take Parsa out she needs to go down two sets of stairs. Right now I pick her half the time and let her walk the other half (mostly up the stairs).

Is the bad for her? I know dogs are not fund of being held in the air
