Help Save Macaroni

My name is Matt and this handsome puppy is Macaroni. He's a 6 month old golden retriever and is the happiest puppy I've ever met. He loves meeting new dogs and makes it his mission to always be the dirtiest pup leaving the park. I am in the Army, but am fortunate enough to be able to bring Mac to work with me everyday, and he has become somewhat of a team mascot. Wednesday morning Macaroni woke up and was having difficulty breathing so we rushed him to the emergency vet. The cause is still unknown, but within 12 hours he had developed severe pneumonia, a fever of 105, and fluid built up in his chest cavity. We have done everything the vet has recommended and have surpassed a $11,000 vet bill just to keep Macaroni stable with an IV, supplemental Oxygen, a chest tube to keep his lung from collapsing, and the deposit on surgery. Thanks to all your amazing support, right now Macaroni is getting  prepped for surgery to open up his chest and remove the damaged portion of his lung at Summit Veterinary Clinic in Tacoma, WA (253-983-1114).   At this point I am reaching out to friends and family to help save Macaroni.

Every penny you can offer will bring us one step closer to getting our best friend back. Please spread the word to anyone you can and help us save Macaroni.

Macaroni is home and happy. Still a little drowsy from the pain killers but we're spoiling him every chance we get. A few more weeks and he'll be running around and playing with other dogs like nothing ever happened. At least the stitches are on his chest so it doesn't affect his favorite sleeping position.

Macaroni is free from his IV and Oxygen tubes now and is a much more comfortable and happy puppy. Couple more days and he'll be coming home.

Macaroni is doing great! He's on and off oxygen but is up and walking around and eating regularly. Their biggest issue now is keeping him from getting to excited and wagging his tail so much haha. I've gotten several messages from supporters asking me to raise the goal to cover his bill but I feel like that would be like moving the finish line halfway through a marathon. You all have been so much more generous than I could have imagined. As of this morning Macaroni's vet bill is at $11,767 but he should be coming home in 24-48 hours. At about $350 a day that'll put him just over 12k haha. Thank you all so much for your support, Macaroni wouldn't have made it without you.
Sorry for the picture, he was too excited to sit still.
happy puppy

05 December Update:
Macaroni is doing great! He's off Oxygen and able to get up and move every few hours. He's even eating a bit now. The surgeon had to remove his entire left lung last night but he's healing slowly but surely. His vet bill is right around $12k now so you have no idea how much your donations and support mean to us. Thank you all so much!
