1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

My dog had a fit !

    Morning ,

    My jack Russel has been a little unwell of late and is undergoing investigation work at the vets. He's been up and down in mood and energy . Some days he seems fine then others its all he can do to get out of bed :(

    He's had blood tests which came back fine , xrays which showed a slight enlarged heart and what appeared to be lung worm ! But we had the results from a lung scrape back on Friday which were negative for worm ?

    Vet put him on antibiotics for a trace infection they found on the tests , and yesterday JJ (the dog , oh who is almost 9)
    Seemed to be on the mend , barking at the postman and obsessed with the rabbit that has taken up residence under our decking , he's eating fine and drinking as normal.

    Last night he was curled up on his bean bag next to the fire and I was sat on the floor next to him watching telly , the wife had gone to bed .
    All of a sudden he's flips on his side and is fitting !:eek: I screamed for the wife to come down and call the vet Richard ( he lives in the house opposite me ) JJ was still convulsing and struggling to breath , then he just froze ! No movement and stiff with spit dripping from his mouth , as I supported his head I really thought he'd gone . As the vet came into the lounge JJ's eyes started moving and his breathing returned to normal and he struggled onto his feet :confused:

    Richard gave him a bit of a check over and listened to his heart and lungs and checked his gums . We are going to take him for a ct scan when Richard can get him booked in.

    This morning he seems normal if a bit tired as am I after couldn't sleep and kept on looking down the end of our bed to check on him .

    That bloody terrified us last night :eek:

    Spent all day watching him , he's been out in the garden and had a short walk with me up my perm which I hope done him some good .
    But he's just not right , just can't put my finger on it but he's just not him :confused:

    Got to go to work tomorrow but feel that's the wrong thing to do , I really don't know what's for the best ?:(

    no im affraid not , vet is not willing to knock him out for a few more days after the fit , as his breathing is still not right :(


    In other news we have been stitched up by the insurance company :mad: we just renewed with them and all the documents were emails so I never noticed that now he is over 8 yrs old they only pay 55% plus we have to pay a excess as per normal .

    The Ct scan is gonna cost. Loads :eek: so I may have to sell my guns and rc helicopters to make sure we have enough to pay . I'm not bothered as he is more important .

    Nowt worse than seeing your dog having a fit!One of my collies has had three now and the vet still says monitor it!thankfully it's been over a year since the last one,I will never forget the first,he collapsed on the ground shaking and frothing at the mouth and was all rigid then he stopped moving and yeah I thought he'd gone.I was in the middle of the sheep field at the time,all I could do was cuddle him,luckily he came round and I rang the wife to bring the land rover.he took a few days to come right,kept banging into things and was disoriented. i wish all the best for your little doggy and all goes well :)
