10 Days Post Op...bend at the knees ok?

I have a dumb question. I am at Day 10 post op. I have a new puppy. New puppy needs to be attached to leash for trips outside to potty. I am home alone today so it is up to me to take her out (or deal with accidents on the floor). I still am not supposed to lift, and she is a little porker at about 7 pounds. So...my question is this: Is it okay for me to squat down at the knees to grab the leash and hook her up? As long as I am using my leg muscles to lift myself back up? Or is this doing damage and I just can't feel it?

Hi (((Look2))) I'm so glad that you feel good enough to take the puppy out for "walkies". I use to be a dog groomer and use to get questions like this all the time. But usually it was from my older clients. Here's an idea that works very well. Can someone setup a "ramp" so that puppy can get up up on a couch or chair? Have puppy "sit" and then hookup leash. Okay, well "help" puppy sit and hookup leash. If you can do this and follow the exact same steps each time, your puppy will understand what it means when you walk to the ramp. You can use a treat to help him walkup. Soon he will automatically walk over to the ramp and he will be cueing you to walk him. I hope this helps!
Happy healing and congrats on the new puppy!
