      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 .

car sick dog

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody has problems with their dog getting car sick? I have only one problem with my beautiful chocolate lab, she can't go for car rides longer than 20 minutes. My in-laws live in Crosslake MN, about a 3 hour drive. Mossy will physically shake and pant the WHOLE ride. When we stop and let her out suddenly she is fine. Our vet said give her Benadryl, which we have tried and it has not worked. We have set up play dates for her before a trip so by the time we leave she is dead tired. Still she shakes and pants. Oh, and she has to be in the front seat or it is much worse. So 60 pound Mossy rides on my wife's lap for 3 hours straight. Help!!! Has anybody encountered this problem and what have you done??

I have a shepard Mix that was the same way. I let him ride in the back seat and he would shake and drool like crazy. I decided to put him in his crate, mostly to save the upolstry in the car. After I started to use the crate he rides much better. He now rides for 4 to 5 hours at a time and sleeps the whole ride. I think he feels safer in his crate, rather than having free rein in the back seat. Just an idea it worked for me.

Mr. B

Are you sure it is being car sick and not that Mossy is scared or nervous about being in the car? My lab acts the same way but only when my wife and I are having a heated discussion.

Not really sure what can be done, but it sounds to me that Mossy is nervous about the car ride.

I agree with Mr B! It sounds like the dog has a fobia about riding in the car.

Hows your driving??? grin.gif

Seriously tho i would try a crate. the key is making sure the dog is very comfortable with the crate before you take her for a drive. Most dogs that are crate trained find security in the crate.

good luck!

I have the exact same problem with my Lab/springer mix. I looked it up on the internet and one site suggested dramamine, so I tried that. It has worked a few times but you do have to make sure you give it to the dog a good 2 hrs before the car ride. But as a side note the dramamine will really take the life out of them for awhile, very sleepy and just plain lying around for a bit.

My setter would get carsick until she was 6mo. old. Then she out grew it. According to my vet this is quite common with younger dogs. Also, letting her travel out of the kennel seems to prevent the "virtego" effect causing carsickness. After she's hunted and tired, the kennel is her "happy place" and nothing bothers her.

I was watching TV, and I think it was an add from Pet smart. They have a new drug that was just approved for motion sickness for dogs. Check with your local Vet. Maybe they have heard of it by now. CAJ

I had a carsick dog too. But she outgrew it. My vet also said this is not uncommon amongst young dogs and usually they outgrow it, especially with larger breeds which most hunting dogs are.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
