      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 .

11:30 a.m.

The College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University in Pullman has assigned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Steve Martinez, to Chocolate's case. After an in-depth review of the radiographs by Dr. Martinez and the radiology department, a tentative plan has been developed for extensive surgical procedures to attempt repair of Chocolate's two front legs. Surgery would be followed by four to five weeks of physical therapy at the WSU facility. Tentative costs have been set at $5,000 for surgery and $1,500 for physical therapy with total costs of up to $10,000 possible. Until doctors actually are able to evaluate the injuries during surgery, however, all plans are subject to change. Donations for surgery and physical therapy continue to come in to Meadow Hills Veterinary Center. Watch for further updates this evening.

10:30 a.m.

Isaac and Sonia Ayala, who rescued Chocolate, were here to visit the very excited dog this morning. They expressed sincere appreciation for the outpouring of donations and good wishes from the community. An anonymous donor even dropped off a bag of treats and a blanket at the Ayala residence this morning.

9:00 a.m.

Chocolate is in great spirits this morning! He has a voracious appetite and Dr. Swailes has added an extra meal to his feeding schedule today. Chocolate loves to go outside and has a vigorous tail wag for everyone who says hello. Updates on surgery should be available by noon today.

That is a sad story about the poor dog. I can't believe he takes that yellow ball with him everywhere. He sure seems like a great dog. I sure hope it all works out for him.

Just a little update for those of you interested. A member of another forum stopped in and said they have raised $11,000 for Chocolate's surgery and rehab.

Update on condition

Video of Chocolate:

Look in the vide section for injured dog

7:00 p.m.

Chocolate arrived in Pullman at the College of Veterinary Medicine's teaching hospital. He has settled in comfortably for the night (with his yellow ball) and will meet with his surgeons early tomorrow morning. The surgeons will examine Chocolate thoroughly and take additional X-rays to determine which surgical procedure will have the greatest chance of success in this case. Bone plating, pins, bone grafts, even an artificial elbow joint have all been discussed as possibilities for Chocolate. Check our website tomorrow for further updates.

3:30 pm

Chocolate left Meadow Hills Veterinary Center for the WSU Teaching Hospital. Transportation was provided by Ann and Bill Stokes, who generously donated their time and vehicle to make sure Chocolate was transported safely and treatment could begin as soon as possible.

I think you mean the many humans have been generous enough to help out this particular dog in need, and the person that finally rescued it but could not have the resources to help it.
