Being from England is no excuse.  LOL!!   No really, everyone has troubles with this, it really is a ridiculous system.  I even had a hard time with it at first. We're working on improving it, but in the meantime there are two ways to add pictures to your post.   EDITED UPDATE:  HAHAHA. I  just got it that you were answering a question from someone else in regards to where you were from.   I thought you were making a joke that you were from England and didn't know how to upload pictures. I was baffled, and thought that was such a funny thing to say, but now I get it.   Just a dense American here. 


1. The easiest way is just to add it as an attachment.  Down below the text box where you type your message, you'll see "message attachments".  You browse and upload pictures right off your computer.  The picture won't actually imbed, but it will provide a link that people can click on to see the picture.

2. Or you can imbed them into the body of the post - this is a little more complicated.  Check out this link to get directions.

Good Luck!  Let me know if you still have troubles

Oh that is terrible.  I am so sorry for your loss.  That is one of the reasons I am an advocate for House Rabbits, but even bunnies inside can sometimes get hurt or sick and so I understand your feeling of loss. I have lost a bunny too.  It was due to an illness called e.cuniculi.

 It's hard I know.   It hurts so much!!  I know it's hard to go where they were staying and see their empty cages, and I know your routine changes now, but time does heal pain.  I still hurt when I think about my bunny, but it's not as sharp, and I can think about all the cute things now that make me happy.

The bunnies are now in peace, and you can use this opportunity to educate others who have rabbits about the dangers.    The sadness you have about the loss of your bunny companions can be turned around, and you can actually help save someone else's bunny.   You can tell them that it's best to have rabbits inside, but if they must  have theirrabbit outside, to make sure that closures can lock so other people can't get in.  And that if they have younger siblings, that may be forgetful, then to set rules for supervision only, or get a lock (key or code) for their pen.

So because of what has happened to your bunnies, you can help save others.   Once you are able to heal, just spread the word on how to keep bunnies safe.  

Again, I am sorry for the pain you feel.  I'm sending you thoughts of peace and healing. (hugs!)

i know i must go over the loss but i still cant get over the image of their cold, lifeless still bodies. it keeps running through my head. i know i didnt mention it but they were both brutally murdered and i do not wish to specify how as it is very upsetting. if maybe the foxes had taken their whole bodies then maybe it woudnt have been so bad. i couldnt even look at them myself, my brother had to remove their bodies and bury them for me. thanks again for all the support you have given me binky, and im thankful that through me owning rabbits i got to talk to such helpful people.

ASG, I am so sorry to hear about your bunnies.  I know how hard it can be, just a couple of years ago we lived on a farm and had a couple of pet goats.  They were the sweetest girls but we had decided to move into town.  We were happy to have arranged for them to be taken in by friends with a farm near our new house and were looking forward to being able to visit them.  On the last weekend before our move we came home from some shopping and found both had been killed by a coyote.  It was a horrible scene.  My husband almost collapsed from grief as they had been especially close to him.

Please know that it does get easier as time passes and, though you will never forget them, try to think about the good times you spent with them.

Sending warm and healing thoughts to help you in your grief.

i know it's hard. About 6 years ago my cat was mauled by two stray dogs in my front yard. I couldn't believe it. I think what was worse is that I was gone somewhere that day (basket ball game??) and my parents had called animal control to get rid of the body. So I never saw her. It took me a LONG time to get over it. I still have dreams about her... This stuff happens, I still don't know how they caught my cat- this was a cat that was quick enough to catch birds and grasshoppers, and would catch something every week.

You did the best you could for your bunnies... they are in bunny heaven munching on huge carrots looking down and binking for you.

ASG I have lost a bunny too, she was poorley and she died at home with us which I found so distressing and it hurt like hell for ages, but you did a fab thing in taking them in to your life to give them  love and you should feel good about that.  its hard now but it does get easier x 

We buried our bunny in the garden and now she has a tree to mark 'her' spot x she pop's into my thoughts all the time and its nice to have a place to call hers x

RIP bunnies x
