I never reallt thought about what I'd do if a dog got hurt... If it was Sasha, there's no way I could pick her up. She's 130lbs, and I'm 140, but still... Zoey I could. Bella, maybe. Depending on the situation at hand. If one of us was going to get hurt, then, yes, I could pick her up (I can pick her up, just for fun.)... But If it was her dead weight, and I had the option to get help carrying her, I would... Hmm, good thing I want a Border Collie, I can carry one of those.
