My mom owns a small mutt that has been shaking the last couple of days. I just heard about it yesterday. He also yelps in pain once in awhile. My mom wont take him to the vet because of money. We barely are making it with the economy the way it is. My mom has to also see a doctor for serious problems but can't because of it. I don't know what to do about the dog. I love him so much. He is about 10 years old and my mom told me that she doesn't think he will make it. My mom's boyfriend used to be a rancher so he is used to death in animals and doesn't seem to care. I have no money. I'm 17 and broke. I'm crying as I type this because I don't know what I can do. My mom texted me saying this is how it is for the poor. I don't even live at home. I live with my gram. I just want to take the dog and atleast let the dog live peacefully. There is no way I can afford the vet. I told my sisters to give the dog some aspirin, so I hope that he will get better. Does anyone have any advice for me? Everyone is probably going to bash me, which I really don't need. I just want the dog to be fine and he's not. I feel really guilty, but there is nothing I can really do. My gram is picking me up soon and I want to take the dog with me, but she probably wont let me.
