Gin Gin our rabbit is passing right now.

For the past couple of days, we've noticed our old pal not eating.
He's been getting less responsive and today when I came home from work, we found him laying limp, slowly breathing and very unresponsive.
I hate myself right now for attempting to give him a bath in order for him to snap out of it, because now he's wet, and if you've owned a rabbit, you know it's a chore to dry that coat.
He laid in the water of the bathtub. Limp as ever. I had to keep his head above the water that poured off of him.
So now we're outside together in the sunlight, he's laying in a towel. And I'm sticking by him while he goes.
Gin Gin has lived a good 8 or so years now. So fellow pet thread posters, would you join me in seeing him off?
Goodnight Gin Gin. We love you.
UPDATE: He's passed. I never left his side while he went through the process. I buried him with tears and said a few words. I'm certain, another rabbit is being born at this moment, and I hope it will enjoy life as Gin Gin did.
Nor speak of me with tears
But laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you
I loved you so -
'twas heaven here with you

Gin Gin was so lucky to have you by his side as he crossed over. Lots of love and hugs to you
Your post has me in tears. Gin Gin passed knowing he was loved and wasn't alone. That is the best that any of us can hope for. Again, I am so sorry.
