Honestly I first felt sympathy for you for having to deal with the guilt of hurting such an adorable puppy. But then I saw your name. You think it's funny that you fell on an animal 10x smaller than you?

Hope your friend won't hold a grudge! It was obviously an accident and I'm sure you feel enough guilty as it is. :)

That's the sad thing #36, surprisingly there are people who would put their pet down just because they don't want to pay for medical treatment.

It's not that people don't want to pay for it, it's that they don't have the money for the medical bills. Vet prices completely screw people over. There are many things that could be fixed with surgery but people don't have the $5,000-10,000 to pay for it. It's really sad, and I don't think you should be blaming the people that not only can't afford it, but then have to put their best friend down because of it.

We used to dog-sit a puppy who was born with a broken leg, the breeder refused to pay medical fees so he gave it to my moms friend for free. It was too late by that time and she had to get her leg amputated, but she was one of the happiest dogs ever.

#48: Trust me, we don't like charging that much. It's because of the ongoing arms race between the pharmaceuticals industry and the insurance industry in human medicine. Insurance companies try to pay as little as possible, so in human medicine the doctors and pharmacies are billing the insurance companies several times what they would actually charge a patient just to get the fraction the insurance company will cover. It more or less works out for patients because they still only pay their $30

That pup must have a seriously strong tongue to knock a person off balance simply by licking them. Was its name Clifford by any chance?

As someone with balance issues for a lot of reasons I'll vouch that trying to stand up from a squat when losing your balance tends to make the situation worse. OP probably would have ended up landing on the pup's back if they'd tried to do that. And then the pup would have been dead or paralyzed almost for certain. A broken leg is way better than landing on the poor pup's back.
