Musings on life, by Bella – the cat-ish dog
Bella on transportation, also known as how to carry a bitch
Because of my delicate size and extreme cuteness, people often want to carry me around. But don’t be too jealous, sometimes it’s a bit of a hassle as many people don’t know how to properly carry a bitch. For all of you that don’t know, I’ve listed appropriate carrying positions below.
1. Hip balance/My impression of a doggie purse
This is an appropriate way to carry me. It allows me to keep an eye on what’s going on (because, let’s face it – I am an excellent judge of character or danger) and it allows you to get me treats with your other hand….which you should definitely do.
2. Across the chest/My head on your shoulder
This is also a good way to carry me, as it allows me to give menacing glares to those behind us or smirk at those that wish they could be carried.
3. Baby/I am a princess pose
This is my favorite way of carrying a bitch. It allows me the greatest comfort while still letting everyone know that I am a princess…hmmm I’m not sure which one of those things is more important.
Anyway, not all dogs like this pose. But then again, not all dogs are fit to be divas. 😉
Picking dogs up is also apparently confusing. Do not ever try to pick me up by my back legs – you’re making me look like a dog wheelbarrow and I will voice my displeasure. If you do this – you sir, are an ass and you are not allowed to carry this bitch.
