I'm so sorry to read this. I wish I had something that would help. Just enjoy the time you have left with your precious pup and make her happy. It will be tough but worth it to know she felt comforted in her remaining time.

Edited to add: something which may make her more comfortable is a calming scent diffuser. Like this https://www.amazon.com/Comfort-Zone-Diffuser-Single-Refill/dp/B000J3HZWE

The excessive thirst (waking you up in the middle of the night to refill the bowl) makes me think there might be a medical issue going on. I would take him to the vet to make sure there aren't any issues going inside that are making him act out.

If there aren't any medical issues, your vet can help you decide whether medication is appropriate to help treat the anxiety. There are options for everyday medication, and for use on an as-needed basis. Some regular vets prescribe medication for anxiety, and some do not - so, don't assume you have to go to a behavioralist, which is expensive and therefore turns some people off.

If you do go to the medication route, I would suggest looking into the Pet Prescription Drug Card Program. It is free, and actually can save you some money. There is a link to price out the cost of the meds for different pharmacies near you, so you can see which are cheapest. Your vet may expect you to fill the Rx at their office, but you can usually request a written Rx (depends on the state). There are also programs at places like Walgreens where you pay an annual fee, and then discounted medication.

Other techniques you could try: Canine Lullabies, a DAP diffusor, an x-pen to contain him to an area that he can't scratch up (ie not near a door) if you don't want to go the crate route), a Thundershirt, or daycare.

You haven't failed your dog. If you had, you would have thought "oh well, his anxiety will go away on its own!" or just ignored the anxiety altogether. The fact that you have worked so hard thus far, and are trying to find more options means you care, and are willing to put in the work. It is also great that you recognize that dealing with anxiety requires management and techniques, and not a "fix". Sadly, there isn't one. But, you clearly know that and are willing to put in the effort to help your dog, and that right there is evidence that you aren't failing your dog at all!

I've found great success with the comfort zone diffuser. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000J3HZWE/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1397828471&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40
Just plug it in a few minutes before you leave next to your dog's kennel. The effects are almost immediate. Your dog will mellow out drastically while you're gone.
