      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Lost Female Yellow Labrador Retriever

Recommended Posts

Please let me know if you have seen her or have heard of her in your area....

Our female yellow lab (kinda reddish in color) has been missing since the evening of 9/28.

She was last seen at County Road D and Labore Road at the Little Canada / Vadnais Heights / Maplewood border. She was wearing a black collar with multi colored dog bones on it. She is just over one year old. Our hearts are aching. Just not knowing if she's hurt, dead, or if someone has her and isn't turning her in, or if someone has turned her in to somewhere we haven't called. She comes from a family with four kids and a "big brother" chocolate lab. His heart is aching, too.

Please, please, PLEASE...if you know anything, anything at all, please let us know. We can be reached at 651-486-7524 or 651-235-7561.

Thank you so, SO much....

I saw a "reddish-colored" lab in my neighborhood recently, but I'm pretty sure the dog was a male. I'm not 100% positive it was a male, as it was about 50ft or so away. Can you describe the dog in more detail?

It's probably not your dog that I saw, as I live on the East Side of St. Paul, but I figured I'd ask.

I will keep an eye out for it again.

I hope you get her back safely!

Thank you for the email, Paul, I appreciate it. Our lab is actually Fox Red - I'm just not sure how many people are aware of that color - so we've been saying yellow but a bit reddish. She is 1 year old and weighs in around 50 pounds. She was lost wearing a black and gray collar with multi colored dog bones on it, no tags. I wouldn't be surprised if she was found in your area. They say dogs can travel in excess of 10 miles when lost. I hope the additional info helps, and thanks again.

Yes, we have checked with shelters, vets, humane societies, etc. We have put out over 200 flyers and will do another 200 tomorrow evening. We have it posted on [YouNeedAuthorization], some lost pet sites and have an ad in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. We keep getting emails that people are stealing labs for the hunting season. I don't think some people realize how deep a missing dog can affect a family. All of our spare time goes to trying to locate her. We hope to have her home soon. Thank you for your advice.

That's a great looking dog!

The dog I saw in my neighborhood doesn't look anything like your dog, and I saw it again and it's definitely a male. But, I will keep my eyes open. I wish you the best in finding her!

I hope all goes well!

    • I work nights, so don't see any weekday games, but of the weekend games I have seen, tonight was the best of the year.
    • I’ll second the Hustler recommendation.  I have a fastrak 54” and couldn’t be happier. Put about 350hrs on the last 4 years. Had a 42” JD before this one, and darn near cut my mowing time in half. If you got the hustler route, get the front flex springs.... they ar worth the money
    • I just don't like the look for some reason. I also have a full mount and went with a closed mouth. 
    •   I have heard that from most Taxidermist.  But, it's really cool for the Nonhunting relatives and their kids when they come over for Holidays to see the teeth!  
    • Thanks for the input, my lawn is very flat just a ton of maple trees! 
    • Off to the dehydrator this venny goes!! Num num!
    • I got a hustler raptor SD last year with a 54" deck. I cut about 2 acres also and my mowing time has be cut down by half. I chose to go with a 54 instead of a 60 beside cause of uneven ground and road ditch. zero turns don't side hill very well so if you have hilly ground I would try one out. I used two of my neighbors one was a john deere witch I like a lot and a country clipper  I didn't like that one.  It had a joy stick that controlled the drive  I thought it was very touchy mowed my yard twice with it      
    • Thats not a natral pose for a black bear leech 
    • Well the 42” 14 year old craftsman LT1000 is heading to the hunting camp so I need a new one for Home. I cut about 2 acres with lots of tree so a zero turn only makes sense, looking 52 - 60” deck and have about a 5K budget to work with. Ariens ikon has me intrigued but also looking at a couple used stand up Wright’s with less than 200 hrs. Also looking at the z series. Thoughts? 
    • here comes the tough games, vegas tonight, whom we beat at home, and the tougher game against a last place coyotes tomorrow who we are 0-1-1 against the year. I will say it again, we need 3 points this weekend, all the teams on our tail are winning.
