      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 .

shaking head episode

Recommended Posts

My lab just the other day started shaking her head uncontrolably. It goes on for about 15 seconds the stops for 15 seconds, this continues for about ten minutes. Some one told me that it was a siezure but from what i know about them it affects the whole body and not just her head. Shes wide awake when it happens and she has even been walking around while it happens. It just happened for the cecond time about an hour ago. Any body have any clue of what would be causing this.

My first thought would be to check the ears. If one or the other smells, more than likely she's got an infection. Wax build-up, or a tick may have wandered in, are other possibilities. Try doing a vigorous ear wash,and see what comes out, if nothing and condition persists, it's time for a trip to the vet. Severe infections can ruin a dogs hearing forever, not worth the risk.

Yep, ears! Happens to my lab quite often. Need to be cleaned out real good and then it subsides.

I think i might have misdiscribed the shaking part. Its not that shes shaking like she just got out of the water where her ears start flapping. I guess i can say its like a bobble head motion where her head bobbs and her body isnt affected. And shes not doing it on purpose like to get rid of an itch, i have actually tried comforting her and holding her head some what tight and it just keeps going.

There are at least 2 types of seizures. Petite and Grand Mal. Petite is just as it sounds, very small, sometimes un-noticeable. These can be as simple as a blank stare for a few minutes to a twitching of a muscle. This is possibly whats going on with your pet. Grand Mal are the "big shake all over" types that most associate with as a seizure. I am not a Dr so there may be more types. ( I had 2 Grand Mal when I was a teenager. ( Yes, MANY years ago.) Ha

Anyway, the only way to know for sure is ask the Vet. There are meds available for treatment of seizures. I would assume some are applicable to dogs.

    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.
