      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 .

Doggie Daycare?!?

Recommended Posts

A new place in my town opened up - called Doggie Daycare. My wife is set on bringing my lab there on Wednesday. She is very excited about it! She wants to have our pup go there one day a week.

I need some help here guys; in my head I can not justify bringing my dog to "daycare" ($20/day). Our dog has the run of the house while we are working and is usually home alone a max of 9 hours. She is spoiled (obviously).

So please help me justify bringing my dog to daycare!?!

I would say that if you dont have time when you get home from work to get her some exercise then you could bring her there. I dont think a dog minds sleeping the whole day away.

The only benefit i see is that your dog isn't just laying around the house getting fat. if the dog has the opportunity to run and play with other dog i think it would be good exercise and a good time for your dog to socialize with other dogs. If the dog is just in a kennel not interacting with other dog and/or people then there is no reason to bring the dog there.

My lab has run of the house when the wife and I are gone as well. She just sleeps, like yours.

If I sent my lab there, she would just get nervous and drool alot. I think there would be too much anxiety for me to justify it but each dog is different. Yours may not be weird like mine.

Then there is always the chance of the dog contracting things like kennel cough, or a dog fight yada yada yada...

Not for me... dogs aren't people. You can get as much socialization when you are with your dog around other guys and their dogs... plus YOU control the situation.

Just another ploy to capitalize on a situation because people have forgotten that dogs are dogs and not children!

If you want your dog to go to 'daycare' make sure all vaccines are current including bordatella... God help us!

Good Luck!

Ken, I agree with you 100%; I can not believe that we have come this far with dogs! I think my rational for doing it will be only to keep the wife happy

I can think of a few things other than this that I would rather do to keep my wife happy! DOH! whistle

Stand you ground or it'll be you that drops off the dog and picks it up. smile

Watch out they might have a dog psychic on staff.

Of coarse the dog will tell her she wants to spend 3 days a week doggy daycare.

I'm sure the dog would love it, it would also love t-bone's for dinner every night too but he still gets the same stuff he's had for 10 years.

It's like the time my mom told me I should let the dogs ride in the truck instead of the insulated kennel when its cold. She said they don't have any room in there. I then explained that they can stand up and turn around, much more room than I have when I am in a car.

Dogs are great and I love mine to death but in the end they are just dogs.

Next she will be paying for the webcam so she can watch your dog from work while it is running around the daycare.

    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
