Please don't let him die on me, TINKY MY CHIHUAHUA

Have you ever watched your your closest fur friend die slowly,only knowing that any lifesaving surgery is WAAAY out of range.Trying everything in your power to help him,but knowing only money is needed to save him. It's heartbreaking to an animal lover.I just lost my 21 year old girl " Booboo" earlier this year.I just can't,I just can't lose  two in less than a year.
   Tinky is going to have to have surgery,I'm broke ,not by choice,I hate living this way.People have been downright hurtful ,Saying things like," If you can't afford the vet bills,you have no right having pets".When we find that special pet,rich or poor ,welcome them.Do we expect health issues in their future,some yes,but I was blindsided.The only way I keep my wits,is to just love and enjoy every little thing about them.People don't realize how special it is to have  the love and loyalty of a dog.I adore them.Please,I feel horrible, my heart is breaking watching him slowly fading.My Tinky is 11 years old, not old yet
   My day started out by intending to take Tinky to the emergency clinic in Latham,NY.I called first and explained what was happening:
Tinky has a reverse sneeze which makes him sound like a duck,but lately he's actually coughing, gagging, and having issues breathing,totally making me flip out when I see him struggle.
    The vet said ,over the phone,it sounds like a heart issue,were not equipped to do x-rays,he may need a other testing,you may need a technician,you be better off taking him to,"Capital district emergency clinic" they said the exact same thing,were not equipped to do x-rays today,sounds like a heart condition.You need to bring him to "upstate emergency specialist clinic ,in Latham again....So I'm panicking,I tell the story of TINKY,and even they said,there are no techs here today for x-ray,and the specialist isn't here.Saying again, we're not set up for that,call during the week sometime"SOMETIME" she said,along with "that really sounds like a heart condition',I went on also to explain his pain in his hips which he is losing mobility in one,,he just started losing the ability to walk as well and I can see his pain,isn't there something you can do for at least his hips?she said no,we need x-rays,I went on and asked" How much am I looking at for x-rays,the exam,she said it's $165 to just walk in the door,And XRAYS, START AT $300.I only had $250.I just broke down and cried on the phone.
       So out of desperation,I applied for
Care credit........ denied
Scratchpay......... denied
And fell through every hole looking at grants.
     So,I have no money and a sick puppers,I'm not ready,I love my dogs SO MUCH,my daughter once said I'm too obsessed with them lol
        PLEASE,Help TINKY,my heart is breaking again,I'm asking anyone,if you can spare,please don't let this little guy go yet,I see in his eyes he wants to live.But,no vet would see him,he needs XRAYS,,VISITS TO A DOG CARDIOLOGIST,TRACHEA OPENING TO BYPASS HIS THROAT.SURGERY ON HIS HIPS,AND HEART disease TREATMENT.....SO FAR,(oops sorry about caps) all I give him is CBD oil to take the edge off his pain, allergy medicine,Turmeric for inflammation,hound honey for his coughing.and it's frustrating,it helps with  symptoms,but not a cure.Im trying to earn money other ways,but my back  is shot and it pretty much isolated me from,oh ,life.But he needs serious medication.Im asking for $ start the treatment he visits,medication, X-rays,surgery,which I haven't asked for money for that, yet.
   I've exhausted every grant loan,pet ins,making arrangements with vetrinarian...
Would you
Could you please give him a fighting chance,as well as saving me from going through on the hell of losing my best friend. I love him SOOO much,they all keep me sane and grounded.Hes still playful,but,he needs a Chihuahua overhaul.
Thank you for at least reading my plea,Any donation would be greatly appreciated,I don't put these things out there, because I'm embarrassed that I can't get him proper treatment,and people can be mean about that.So please,I feel like my world is caving in with what Covid has done last year to this year,please have an understanding heart,and PLEASE don't be mean or say rude things,this is hard enough without the negative remarks,PLEASE,Be blessed everyone,don't overlook your blessings at this time,be thankful for who and what you have in your life instead of things you don't have.Our blessings are still there,You just need to focus on what you love.
