      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Sunday I let my dog out of the house like always and like always she chased the squirrels at the bird feeder For some reason one of the squirrels got a late start and she was on him and ran him around the corner of a building and immediatley I heard a bellar and almost a scream, she came running back bellaring like crazy front leg straight out. After I got her calmed down I went around the corner of the building and immediately there was an angle cut, 4 inch log, exactly chest height. She must have took it head on. Didnt think alot of it then yesterday I notice a baseball size lump of fluid on her chest, so I called the vet, put her in her kennel and went to wrok. I came home early for the vet trip and the bulge was now like a grapefruit and the swelling extended between her front legs. Her whole chest was a soft, fluid sponge and you could tell it was weighting her down.

The vet popped it and out drained a watery blood mix with the consistency of syrup, horrible looking. I bet she filled up a pint jar and is now on antibiotics and anitinflamatories. Hopefully this works or else they will need to pen her up and clean her out and install a drain plug \:\(

Scary for a first time owner and reason enough to buy a chest protector before next years hunting season. Had that been a 1 inch branch no doubt it would have punctured her chest. Hopefully a chest protector would eliminate that concern to a degree. Do many of you use them?

I use one from Cabelas. Not for the chest protection thou. I use it to help her nipples from getting raw. After a few litters the front nipples hang down about a 1/2 inch. They get red and raw after a day in the field. Looks sore but it does not slow her down at all. Springers run all day long.
