I'm afraid the op hasn't been back for a while - so I'm sorry to hear about your dog. What I'd say is that if she has decided she doesn't want to be touched, respect that.

For quality of life in general, there is a scale used to assess our pets' quality of life when they are seriously ill. I understand it was developed for cancer care but the principles apply to any life limiting condition. What is their quality of life in relation to Hurt, Hunger, Hydration, Hygiene, Happiness, Mobility and More good days than bad days. You can find more detail here

There is a saying, better a week too soon than a day too late. It's a terrible decision but one that responsible owners have to face. If it helps, there are pet bereavement counselling services you can access.
