It works in the first post in this thread. The gif will animate only when it's clicked on. I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to work and I think it helps save bandwidth, especially for those on dial-up.
Call me a cranky old man, but I tend to prefer not having gifs animate when I'm trying to read, YMMV.
Cute Gozzin, but it looks like you got an errant ellipse near the tip of the bunny's right ear.
