That's kind of the weird thing about it for me. I've never cried at any funerals for my family members even though I loved them, but I cried like a little ***** when my dog died.
I've cried at them all, honestly. I cried when Harry Kalas died, that tells you a lot about me. I really care a lot about people, even if I've never met them. Pets the same.
Good luck Indy, but in the end, if its recommended that the dog be put down, its the right thing to do, it just is horrible dealing with it. Stay tough, I know I'll have a hard time when it comes to my dog passing away. Shes a big Sheppard mutt, 10 years old and starting to get arthritis... Such a great dog, it'll be tough when she goes.
Pay the $60 or so for a physical exam, you owe it to your pet. She is obviously in pain and suffering. NSAIDS and other analgesic meds can be cheap and help with pain. How do you know her leg is dislocated? It could be so many other things, some simple or some more complicated. Don't make a descision on euthanasia on your own without a diagnosis or consulting a vet.
I've had to do it before. It's a hard thing to do. But if the dog is in pain, there really isn't much of a choice to be made.
It is a ****** thing to do, but you don't want your dog to be in excruciating pain.
Best of luck
