      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 .

Female heat cycle?

Recommended Posts

I have a 15 month old female brittany and as far as I know she has not had a heat cycle yet. Some tidbits here: my dog spends the day in the outside kennel and she comes in and spends the night in the house, she did have a navel hernia repaired "hope this has nothing to do with this" and she is always humping our spayed 5 year old GSP. I know the 1st heat can be lite but I haven't seem it yet. Shouldn't a female dog usually have the 1st heat cycle from 6-12 months? Thanks Rick

Hi Rick,

A female should come into heat around 10 - 14 months and then every 6 months give or take a little. I had one come into heat at 8 months when she was with another female who was in heat. I have also had a female who never did come into heat. After we found her a new home, she came into heat for the first time at 3 years of age.

The dogs first heat cycle is usually pretty light and some females will kept them selfs licked clean so you will not notice the discharge. However her backend will still swell up to at least twice the size of normal and that you should notice.

So 15 months is a little late, but not unheard of.

Thanks for the reply Tom, I am just becoming abit concerned that this female has not had a heat cycle yet "that I have seen", and like I said my dogs come into the house in the evening for all night and than go back out in the kennel for the day. I will wait another month or so and than take her to the vet for an opinion.
