Re: How to post pics.

Max, did you right click on the image in imgur and select copy image address?

I resize the pic to 600 pixels on my computer before I save it to imgur. That makes it the proper size to begin with. Then copy the image address and paste it into the insert image tab.

Pretty simple really.

Re: Any tips to stop dog from counter?

Fortunately, a water spray bottle does the trick with my setter. He HATES it and just pointing it at him makes him stop whatever he's doing.

If he makes the slightest move to look my way, the bird is either still some distance off, or was just there moments ago but it's not right there. When the bird is pinned 10ft away, not one hair m...
