      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 .

Question about a dogs first time in heat?

Recommended Posts

Ely Lake Expert

My GSP pup now about 11 months old went into heat during the last month. We have kept a good eye on her. She hasn't left my side when she is with me and my parents say she is always near them when I leave her with them. My concern is that her nipples have gotten a bit bigger and look almost a bit swollen. Is this normal with going into heat or do you think she somehow snuck away and got pregnant? She really doesn't get out of sight,I sure hope she is not pregnant. frown.gif

It's normal. Also you'll find her vulva will be enlarged and probably bleeding from time to time. In a couple weeks things will start to return to normal.

Well that makes me feel better. Also you are right about the blood, I have been wiping some off the floor for the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to stop now.

My brittany jumped on the lap of a buddy and bled on his shirt. He noticed it later and wondered how blood got there. He checked his fingers for cuts and was dumbfounded on how blood got on his shirt. He is still mad at me for this. The bleeding didn't last long.

Buy some childrens "pull-ups". Cut a hole in the back for a tail and stick em on your dog while she is in the house. Works like a charm. Kinda silly looking but you have zero blood to clean up. Just gotta get the dog used to wearing them and your set.

It's not over yet. Usually the first couple weeks after the bleeding stops is the time to really keep your eyes on her, and the sneaky neighbor dog.

I like the pull-ups idea, but I doubt my dog would put up with that for too long. She'd have it torn to shreds in short order.

They have doggie diapers too. They have replaceable absorbant pads you put in the diaper. It works but it is a pain in the keister.

I thought there was no way either of my girls would put up with a "pull-up". I just got after them for the first night they had them on around the house. Both girls now keep them on in the house accept when they are crated. If I were to leave it on while they are in the crate there is zero chance the "pull-up" WILL NOT get shredded.

Hey Ryan she was alone with Buddy for awhile the first weekend...

But they usually cant get pregnant until 11 to 15 days after the bleeding starts.

a) English Shorthaired Pointer

B) German Setter

c) Germlish Shpointer (say it out loud with German accent!)

d) GESSP acronym
