^^^.. Agreed. I've never been accused of being a wordsmith or carefull with my words. But in the long run if you can't do what is best for spook ,do what is right. Its easy to offer advise from a computer to someone you have never met. But its a situation alot have been in. In the end you have to make that call. Prayers
I bookmarked this link quite some time ago, but there may be an organization in this list that could help you out with the cost of surgery. It is worth checking out.
I am like several others you do what you can that benefits the dog. You are doing the best that you can do.
There is a credit card out there just for vet bills. You might think of asking about that as an option.

I know he loves hunting, but he's also a family dog that loves being with people. I'm not a vet and I still have months of praying to do, but if I were a betting man i'd bet spook will make it through it and prolly be able to live atleast the normal life of a pet. Hunting is another question with all the stress he will put on the pelvis. As long as he heels with no pain in the end my prayers have been answered. Like I said he's happy and relaxed at home showing no signs of pain, only signs of boredom from being couped up all day. My training isn't done. I've decided if he can't hunt, i'm going to train him to be the smartest pup in the world.
Thanks to all,

Prayers sent your way! I hope everything turns out ok for both you and Spook!
