I thank the Lord that you recognized Cinders' last call to you and that you gave her the kind of send-off that she truly wanted. You are apparently correct in saying that you and Cinders were soul mates because you were so perceptive of her needs. It is surely a blessing that you two were united for the final phase of her physical life. If you believe as I believe, you will see her when you reach the Rainbow Bridge. I have had many wonderful dogs in my life and I look forward to reuniting with them at the Rainbow Bridge. It doesn't really matter what pet you have, it matters that you bond and love each other.
