      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 .

Losing a buddy

Recommended Posts

dakotakid31

Well i have read other members tributes and postings about losing thier dogs and its always hard to read- We will soon be joining that group as we just got the lab results today from the Vet. Our 8 yo golden ret. has a rapidly spreading canceres tumor in his snout of all places.Brought him in last week because we thought he had a tooth infection but got this unexpected news instead.She gives him a "few weeks". He has been a great pup since we got him. Loved going to S.Dakota and up North grouse hunting along with our chocolate lab. Not looking forward to seeing what effect this has on her since the have been together almost thier whole lives. He has also been my 5yo sons best buddy and this will be his first experience with death which is going to be tuff. We were hoping he would make it till spring so we could give him a nice place to rest at the cabin but thats not going to happen unfortunatlly. What have the rest of you done with your dogs when they pass? How much is cremation? I could get a pick ax and dig a hole up at the lake and i still might end up doing that but wanted to see what others have done. This will be our first dealings with this. He is still alive and happy now but i just want to have things planned so we can enjoy the rest of the time we have left with him. Thanks for any info.

DakotaKid sorry to here about your buddy. Really sucks when you have to go thru it. I cremated my dog about a year ago last fall. Wasn't too bad around $75-100. Came back from the vet in a nice tin. Then in the spring we buried her next to a tree in the yard and put a real nice stepping stone with her name on it. Daughter thought it was really nice and will often put flowers on it during the summer.

DKid...

Sorry to here of the bad news. It is a tough road we hoe, but a responsibility we except the day we pick them up as pups. Give him a couple of wonderful weeks and really spoil him. It'll help your soul. Don't try to "buy" the extra day. When it's time, you'll know and tell yourself it's the right thing to do. It's hard, but know that you are doing the right thing. Your chocolate may act a little confused the 1st few days, but will get into a new routine relativley quickly.

I agree cremation is the way to go in the winter. I'd hate to lay them in a shallow grave only to find a coon or 'yote dug them up. Make sure to tell the vet you'd like the remains and on that "oh so perfect day" lay your buddy to rest. You can take your time and find the right spot and the right day...

Good Luck on this journey, we're all here behind you pulling for you. When you're ready, tell us a little more about your buddy!

Good Luck!

Ken
