Newton needs surgery to remove multiple pulmonary bulae present in her lungs as a complication of a Blastomycosis which developed this spring. After a week in the hospital on oxygen, multiple tests, x-rays, CT scans and over 4 months of medication we have almost beat the 'Blasto' however now we are faced with a very rare occuranrance of bulae left in place of the fungus. Newton's mother Lucky lives with her and she also developed Blasto three weeks after Newton. Lucky's presented as skin lesions and infections rather than in her lungs. It then moved into her eyes and she is now blind in her right eye. We have used up all available savings to treat the fungus and now Newton needs to have this operation in order to hopefully stop the bula from erupting and causing air to escape into her chest cavity which would make it extremely difficult for her to get any air into her lungs. 

Lucky came to me as a rescue from Northern Ontario. when I agreed to foster her so she could have her puppies in a safe place with verterinary care near by and then be spayed and given a new, safe home. She was 2 1/2 years old and this was her 3rd pregnancy. Only 1 puppy survived from her last litter. In my care she gave birth to 9 beautiful, healthy puppies. Newton is one of those puppies. After caring for Lucky and her puppies for 8 weeks and finding them all forever homes we just could not bring ourselves to rehome Lucky and her and Newton became a part of our family. 

My 2 beautiful girls are part of our family and we have scraped up thousands of dollars to nurse them back to health. We were barely managing the medication cost and check-ups when this newest complication was found. If you can find it in your heart to give any amount and/or to pass our story along we would be forever grateful.
