Is it time to put my dog to sleep?

Hi,

My 14 year old German Shepherd may be getting near the end. For a few months now she has had difficulty standing and walking. She can still go out for a (slow, short) walk but she falls frequently and has trouble getting up especially on a hardwood or tiled floor. She has been losing control of her bowels and frequently defecates without being aware of it. For the last 24 hours she's had diarrhea and doesn't know that either. I've had to clean the carpet 5 times and don't even know how to go about cleaning her - she never liked baths at the best of time and I can't imagine getting her in and out of the tub now! I am actually concerned that she is a health hazard - everywhere she goes there is likely to be fecal matter so apart from the inconvenience I'm worried that she could make us sick.
Am I being selfish and lazy because I don't want to clean up crap any more or is this a sign that it is finally time?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
