      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 .

Isn't paintball paint water soluble? If it isn't I'd suggest time. I'd just let it wear off unless leaving it on would endanger your dog's health. How'd your dog get shot?

I would call the cops on the neighbor, i think animal cruelty is a gross misdemeanor.

One good think about it, she is staying home. Maybe it taught her a lesson! The guy is just a jerk of sorts. Rather not get in to a big hassel with him!!! Thanks anyway, guys. I guess some people just don't like pets. jps

well congrats on being the bigger man, i know if someone took a couple shots at my dog with a paintball gun, they would prob be getting a little of their own medicine. But i have always had paintball paint come right out of clothes in the wash, most of it is water based, so a couple good baths for the dog should take it right out.

If that guy hits your dog in the eye it will be likely to lose it's eye considering the velocity those paintballs go at. Is that something you want. I can guarantee that eventually he will start shooting at your dog's head. If you let your neighbor dominate you by doing this he will use even worse judgement and do even worse things in the future. Do not submit to your neighbor's "low brow" mentality. Have an adult conversation with him and come to a reasonable solution to keep your dog in your yard and not in his. Remind him that what he did could land him in jail and suggest that he think twice about harming your dog again. What he is doing is not responsible adult behavior. Don't let someone act like a thug and not call them on it or they will walk all over you. On the flip side, you need to hold up your end too and keep your dog out of his yard. You said there isn't much you can do. Well, there is something you can do. Invisible fence, or a real fence, or a kennel with a run are a few solutions.

I agree with GSPman on this one. I would confront the person and give him your phone #. Tell him that you have taken steps to keep him in your yard, but if it happens again to please call and you'll take care of it. If he has your contact info and still harms the dog before you are notified, then you can press charges. Most cities also have ordinances about using a paintmarker within city limits unless on a licensed field or something like that. I've been in a few paintball games and man they really have some heat (300ft/sec.)and leave a nasty welt. I think you could easily dammage a dog's eyes or ribs with a direct hit. Look out for your best friend and take some responsibility at the same time.

Paintball paint comes off with soap and warm water. Sounds like it's bath time for doggie!!

As far as the shooting neighbor goes. I'm not going to get into the discussion too much as I know how things go around these parts. Good to know doggie got hit with a paint ball and not a 22. Hopefully a lesson was learned. Not with a gun, but I've painted dogs in the past.

Why is the dog at the neighbors anyhow?? Shouldn't he be at home. Not trying to start some thing here but I have so many stray animals in my yard I am sick of it. I have been tempted to get a paintball gun and paint the kitties pink.

I agree its better a paintball than a 22 or pellet gun. Also not the dogs fault for roming the neiborhood. If it was a one time occurance you should have been notified. I have used paintballs on dogs, it does not hurt, it stratles them and also lets the owner know that the dog was probly not were it should be. I also let the owner know before hand. As far as the cruelty it is the owners responsibility to take care of the dog, a paintball is less sever than a car, another dog, or wild animal.
