Nacho is our old man Puppy. My husband and I got him when he was just 8 weeks old right after we moved into our first apartment together. My husband has never had an animal before so I insisted that we get a puppy so that he could go through the entire process of it. Also, I wanted a puppy. We went and picked out Nacho. He’s a pit bull. My husband worked really hard on training him. We used to walk him all over and we even rode bikes with him jogging along side us.
I am convinced that Nacho was the first to know when I got pregnant. He used to sleep on me and suddenly he would only sleep against my back. I started to think that maybe something was going on and 8 weeks later I got a positive pregnancy test. I was actually pregnant for a while but all my test kept coming back negative… It was about 8 weeks already before I got the positive test. Anyway, that’s a different story.
I was a little nervous honestly to have a pit bull and a baby but Nacho has always been great with the kids.
The house that we were renting was in the process of being foreclosed so we needed to find another place fast. That’s when I found out that bully breeds are not easy to move with. We found tons of places that we liked but all of them wouldn’t allow a pit bull. So we kept looking because Nacho is part of our family. We finally found a perfect little place in Stamford and the landlords loved pit bulls so they didn’t mind at all about Nacho. We lived there for 5 years and then bought our own house. Nacho came with us again and now we have 2 kids, 2 dogs (we adopted Max a year and a half ago. He’s half pit bull half rottweiler and all mush) and a turtle.
Nacho is starting to get on the older side. He just turned 12 this year. We noticed last year that his was limping a little and very stiff . The vet recommended a few products to help with this hips and arthritis. Currently we use:
Doggie Dailies Glucosamine for Dogs: 225 Soft Chews, Advanced Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs with Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, Hyaluronic Acid & CoQ10, Premium Joint Relief for Dogs Made in the USA
Doggie Dailies we use for his joint pain. We noticed that it helps his ability to move easier. It says it’s good for skin and coat health although I haven’t noticed much of a difference.
Hemp Oil for Dogs and Cats – 1000mg – Premium Hemp Extract – Advanced Formula – Grown & Made in USA – Omega 3, 6 & 9 – Supports Hip & Joint Health, Natural Relief for Pain, Separation Anxiety
Hemp oil we use for to calm him down. We noticed that it helps with his anxiety. He doesn’t bark at the wind nearly as much as he used to.
NaturVet Buffered Aspirin Medium Large Breed (75 Count)
Aspirin we use for pain relief, inflammation and it has a therapeutic effect so he should just feel good when he takes it. I can tell he actually really likes these because he will eat one out of my hand with nothing else.
These are the products that we use for our aging puppy and they seem to really help with everything. Before you try anything I would speak to your vet first.
