      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 .

Passing a sock

Recommended Posts

At what point do I need to get concerned if my dog ate a sock and has not passed it?

He is still passing stool and eating like normal. He has not shown any changes in behavior, but it has been over a week. Will a sock in a system cause harm after a certain amount time?

da chise - from what I read - it looked like your dog had a sock in it for over two weeks. Is that accurate?

Any thoughts or experiences with this and timeframes to pass a sock? By the way, it is a child's sock and a 65 pound dog.

I know of dogs that have passed woolen mittens and a childs stuffed toy several weeks after they went missing. I think as long as your dog is enrgetic,eating normally and having regular stool, he should be ok, but if your worried a call to vet wouldn't hurt.

I did call the vet the day the sock vanished and was told to watch him, but just give it time for now. I just figured it would have appeared again by now.

When I called the vet's office again on Friday (after a week plus timeframe) the vet tech seemed a little more concerned, but was going to speak to the other vet that was in. They never called me back. I am not looking for non-required vet bills to be on the ultra safe side.

He is eating fine and full of energy. I will give it more time.

I'm sure if he is acting healthy then he is fine. Watch the nose to make sure it doesn't dry, that's a sure sign of something going on. If he starts to act a little differant take him in.

Just keep watching the dog. While I don't know exactly when my pup picked up the sock, her regurgitating symptoms stopped shortly after she passed it and started presumably when she swallowed it. So yes, approximately two weeks.

My 13 m/o lab has eaten 2 of my wifes socks. I've seen them pass from both ends! Amazing! I do know a friend that dropped 3Gs on surgery for bowl obstruction.

If he puked it up some place, I would find it. Unless he ate again. I live in town and have underground fencing. He does not leave the yard.

Thanks for the comments - besides the 3G's surgery comment. I do want to hunt this fall. I need the funds and the dog to do it.

Ron White had a joke about his Bulldog Slugo that apparently ate and excreted a golf glove that had writing on it. He was picking up the dog doo, when he came across the golf glove in the [PoorWordUsage] - and he said "I had to go into the house to get my reading glasses, because i can't read [PoorWordUsage] without my glasses."

Well, I thought it was funny at least...

Good luck with your dog!

Apparently, my dog can hold a sock is his stromach for 3 1/2 weeks without passing it. While duck hunting this weekend, he vomitted over the side of the boat. Sure enough, one children's sock fully intact. He showed no real signs of illness for those 3 1/2 weeks. Had it not been known that a sock was missing (and he had the other one in his mouth), I would have never suspected that anything was wrong with him.

Made my day, even my weekend. We even did well on ducks as well.

    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
