About that thing how to hold a puppy, I think that on picture is showed the best way to did that, as that is how he don't feel any pain, because you're holding just his skin. It may not look like it is the right way, but many times I heard it is. Anyway those white puppies are super cute, they really put a smile on my face.
And also, when my dog was a puppy I gave him a milk. And he didn't have any problems.
