      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 .

I've heard of it before - it's not common, it's disgusting, but some dogs just eat it. I suggest an online search or check out the Just Labradors HSOforum - it's full of info. That particular topic is covered there.

I think you have to try some yourself to get a good grasp on what it is were dealing with here. Is it tasty, can't resist, or addicting. then you will be able to make an educated decision.

Just kidding, I don't know, my pup was doing that junk a couple months ago too and I just gave her a few love taps and scolded her and took it away and gave it to my buddy to eat, and she quit doing it. My guess is the dog will quit it after a few stern disaplin sessions. Mine did I think, she was the first one for me. dogs just do grose things from time to time for no good reason.

Most of the time it occurs right after they get done eating. I wonder if it still smells like food? Maybe try switching back to Dog chow, they never did that when we fed them that food before.

OK, to be more serious, this behavior is one sure way of contracting worms, so you should try somthing.The dog I had that did this was eating rabbit terds and got hookworm. we got it cured but still a bad deal.I would keep up on worming and may even think of a stool sample for the vet.Pluss try to find a way to stop it.

Bill Engvall does a funny bit about this topic. He said he went to the vet and he gave him somethng to make the turds taste bad. Goes on and on about what could make a turd taste worse. Bet there's no "kissie kissie for da puppy wuppy"

I herd from a guy to try meat tenderiser sprinkled on the food and after a few days it changes the odor and they get a habbit of leaving it alone, Go figure, I have no Idea if it realy works, but a gal that works with my wife has the same issue and she was going to try it.

I have a 3 year old yellow male lab that likes to eat the bird seed out of the bird feeders. Drives me nuts looking at all the seed in his [PoorWordUsage] in the kennel. I put his collar on and zap him when he is near by but don't catch him all the time. Hope the bird seed doesn't hurt him. kooba.
