    Something new - an ad on Pet Talk (for some)

    We are trying something new, and you may have noticed an ad at the top of Pet Talk. If you are not seeing the ad (a Eukanuba one, with a Lab in it), but have an extra space at the top, then you - like me - are probably on a Macintosh. Do others see it? What do you think?

    I noticed the extra space at top and was just about to e-mail you to ask. So, like you, I don't see the add.

    Karen, for a while I've been thinking... how about putting the text "Today's Dog of the day" etc. under the pictures? Everything would also align with the rest, and you could even make the pictures a little bigger. Well, I guess you put it there to save space below.

    See what I mean here!

    well I saw the space, but thought maybe it was because I´m now using my regular comp and not the house one which has a different screen display (size)......

    I can't see the ad either. I am not using a MAC. I'm using a self built PC. But still no ad.

    Thanks folks - Eukanuba only wants US and Canadian viewers for this campaign, so people outside of that area may see nothing, as they could have it geo-targeted. Or it could be a flaw in their system.

    I saw it a minute ago. It had a German Shepard in the ad, not a lab. I cant see it anymore though.

    Thank you Kay for the beautiful sig!

    I guess it rotates different breeds of dog. The one I saw had a Lab, but different dogs is also good!

    I can't see it either. I have my laptop (PC) set to disable a lot of stuff, but banner ads aren't in the category.

    I've been seeing the ads on almost all pages all day.

    I've tried it in both IE 7.0.57 and Firefox 2.0.0.3 and both are displaying ads.

    I have NoScript on my Firefox browser which blocks ads, but I know there is an ad there. Where the ad is are the words 'Ad blocked by KPF' - KPF is my firewall.

    No ads here. I haven't seen any all day, and I am on a Dell computer. Will see if they show on my laptop at home.
