Memories of Demi
My little Demi. It seems like only yesterday that we walked into "Just Puppies" at Kristine's constant urging to see the litter of minature schnauzers especially the little "runt". We asked the salesperson to show us the mini schnauzers and when I picked you up and you gave me a wet puppy kiss I knew that I had to have you. So on June 13, 1998, you became a part of the Tabb family. Was I ever so glad we went to see the litter. My little Demi we miss you and love you so terribly much. I miss our truck rides where you would sit on my lap, lean your head out of the window and let the wind blow in your face. I miss our boat rides, jet sking, and 4-wheeling together, the list goes on and on. We did everything together and you were always at my side. I know now that you are safe and being taken care of at "the bridge". My little Demi your MIMI & PAWPAW will always love and miss you. HUGS & KISSES.

4/11/11...My little Demi, today makes one month that you left for the "Bridge". It has been so hard without you being around. We went to the lake house a couple weeks ago and it just wasn't the same. The short drive seemed like an eternity. I missed you sitting in my lap looking at the scenery most of the way. Uncle Wayne even said it wasn't the same at the lake without you being there. We missed you terribly boat and 4-wheeler riding. Kristine went and picked up your ashes while we were gone and brought you home. Your Urn is so beautiful with pictures of you surrounding it. Last week I filled up the hot tub. We miss you hanging out with us in the tub in your little float boat. Annie misses you a whole bunch. There is not a day that goes by that we haven't shed some tears. I left you a chicken sandwich from chick-fil-a that you love so much. We love and miss you very much. I'm leaving for now, but will be back soon my little Demi.

4/22/11...My little Demi. Today is your birthday. You are 13 years old. Happy Birthday my little Demi. Your a teenager now. Today is also Good Friday. It's hard for me to believe this is the first birthday we won't celebrate in 13 years. My heart aches. I miss you bunches my little Demi. I saw your brother Joe the other day. He looks so good. I keep asking myself why did you have to get that terrible kidney disease.It's just not fair. Everyday I wonder if i did everything humanly possible to give you the best care. I feel so guilty that I had to let you go to end your suffering. Please forgive me my little Demi. I love you so much. Are you and Gabbi running and chasing squirrels together? Ya'll loved chasing them. Enjoy your birthday with all your friends at "the bridge". I'm leaving for now, but I will be back soon my little Demi. Hugs and kisses.

4/24/11...My little Demi. Happy Easter. This is our first Easter in 13 years we are not together. I miss you so much. Are you and your new friends having a Easter egg hunt? You really liked boiled eggs, but then you liked them any kind of way. Yesterday we boiled crawfish. Kristine, Daisi and Zoe came. I missed seeing you play with the crawfish that had fallen out of the tub into the yard. You were so funny playing with them with your little paws. Daisi and Zoe were searching thru the house I think looking for you. They also miss you. I love you very much my little Demi. Enjoy your Easter with your friends. I'm leaving for now, but will be back later. Hugs and kisses.

4/25/11...My little Demi. Well Easter has come and gone. We didn't do much of anything on Easter Sunday. Cleaned up a little from the day before. I missed you when i was blowing the deck off. You would stand and let me blow the wind in your little face. My how you enjoyed that so much. I stare at your beautiful Urn and think of our special times together. I love and miss you more than you can imagine my little Demi. I know that you and your little friends had a gre..at Easter. I'm leaving for now, but will be back later. Hugs and kisses.

5/5/11...My little Demi. I just wanted you to know that I do visit you here at "the Bridge" everyday even though I don't leave a message. You can't imagine how much I miss having you by my side everyday. The pain of losing you hurts so bad. I miss and love you very much. I'm gonna leave now, but I will be back later. Hugs and Kisses.

5/11/11...My little Demi. Today makes two months that you left for "the Bridge". I know that you are very happy running and jumping and chasing squirrels with Gabbi. Our hearts are still very heavy without having you with us. We love and miss you so very much. Annie misses you dearly. She now has diabetes and has cataracts in her right eye. The eye doctor says she is most likely blind in that eye and that the left eye will also get cataracts. We will then do cataract surgery on both eyes so that she will be able to see again. Even though she is a min pin she has a lot of your habits. I saw your brother Joe the other day and he said he loves you and misses you. Well my little Demi, I am gonna leave now but I will be back later. Love you always, Hugs and Kisses.

6/1/11...Hi my little Demi. Well last friday we went to the lake house for memorial day and we took you with us. The drive there didn't seem as long as the time before because we had you with us. Even though you weren't physically there your spirit was. We stopped at your favorite rest stop, and at chik-fil-a. Once we arrived at the lake I felt really good because I know you enjoyed going there. We had a good time with Wayne and Darlene. They felt your presence. We all felt your presence. We miss you so very much my little girl. Are you and Gabbi chasing those squirrels? Tell Gabbi we love and miss her to. Our heart still aches for you each day. I am so glad that we have good memories of our times together. Well my little Demi, I'm gonna leave for now but i will be back later. Love you forever, Hugs and Kisses.

6/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today makes three months that you left for "The Bridge". Our days and nights are so lonely without you being next to us cuddling. We miss you so very much. Ms. Debbie was walking your brother Joe last week. He looks really good. I'm sure that he misses seeing you in the front yard. He does take a look to see if you're around. Ranger misses you to. He is forever trying to jump over the fence to come into the back yard. He stands at the fence looking through the cracks to find you. Annie misses you to even though ya'll weren't the best of buds, she did look up to you. There is not a day that goes by without having thoughts of our times together. I sit and stare at your pictures and i keep looking over my shoulders looking for you. Demi you were very special to us and I thank you for chosing us to be your parents. Well Baby Girl I'm gonna leave for now but will be back later. Love you and miss you. Hugs and Kisses my little Demi.

7/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today is four months that you left for "The Bridge". Words just cannot express how much we miss and love you. There's not a day that goes by without thinking about you. We went to the lake house for the 4th of July. We took you with us. We stopped at your favorite rest stop and at chick-fil-a. I got our usual chicken sandwich that you love so much. The 4th of July which was not your favorite holiday was real quite. There was no popping of fireworks that you hated so much because of the drought we have. You might have enjoyed this one. I can remember holding you so tight while kids on the street were popping fireworks. You were so scared. Your brother Joe has been having trouble walking on his hind legs his mother told me. She was taking him to a specialist but i have not heard what they found. I missed you so much while we were at the lake house. I didn't even ride the 4-wheeler because you were not there to ride with me. My little Demi I am gonna leave for now, but will be back later. Love and miss you. Hugs and Kisses my little Demi.

8/1/11...Hi my little Demi. Well last week Me, Chase and Annie went to the lake house and we brought you with us. We stopped at your favorite rest stop going and coming. You really enjoyed those places. I can still see you wanting to smell everything in site. I let Chase use the riding mower to cut the lots because I didn't want to because you weren't there to ride with me. You enjoyed riding on that mower. It was pretty darn hot there, so we mostly stayed inside. Demi we miss you so very much. Are you and Gabbi running and playing with the other fur babies? I'll be ya'll are. Your brother Joe is doing ok. The doctor thinks he is getting arthritis near his hind legs, but otherwise he is doing ok. Miss Debbie doesn't take him for long walks anymore. Well my little Demi, I'm going to go for now but will be back later. I love and miss you so very much. Hugs and Kisses.

8/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today makes five months that you left for "The Bridge". My heart aches just as much today as when you first left. We love and miss so terribly. The hot weather is now on us, my how you hated to be outside on these hot days, but you were by my side everytime i went outdoors. How I miss you being next to me. Brought Annie to Eastex Vet last week to get her blood sugar checked and I saw your picture that you sent to them on the wall. They all asked how I was doing and that they really adored you, you were a very good patient. Of course that wasn't your favorite place to go. I guess you and Gabbi are chasing squirrels. Tell Gabbi we love and miss her to. I'm going to leave for now my little Demi, just know that your are loved and missed. I will be back later. Hugs and Kisses.

9/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today makes six months that you left for "The Bridge". My how we miss you. Demi you brought so much happiness and joy to us each and every day. Our lives are so lonely without you. We love you. Today is also Gabbi's birthday. Are you and her being bad girls chasing those squirrels? Tell her we love and miss her to. Well we didn't go to the lake house for labor day. It has just been too hot. I haven't seen your brother Joe in a while. I don't think that he can walk as far and long anymore. Next time i see Miss Debbie I will ask her how he is doing and let you know how your brother is. Well my little Demi it's time for me to go, but I will be back.
Hugs and Kisses.

10/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today makes seven months that you left for "The Bridge". We miss and love you very much. This fall weather really makes it so much worse as this was your favorite time of the year. You enjoyed staying outdoors with the cool crisp fall weather. Sorry to say, but Annie left for "The Bridge" last weekend due to problems after her surgery. Annie had 2 ruptured disk and was unable to walk so surgery was her only option to walk again.The surgery went fine, but she began having breathing problems on the 3rd day and sadly we had to let her go. I hope you can find her so that ya'll can run and play and be the best buds forever. We should get her ashes tomorrow and she will be next to you. It is so lonely without having both of you to play with. Well my little Demi I'm gonna leave for now, but i'll be back. Go run and play with Annie and Gabbi. Hugs and Kisses.

11/11/11...Hi my little Demi. Today makes eight months that you left for "The Bridge". Our hearts are still so heavy and forever will be of losing you. We miss you so very much. We miss your greetings when we would come home from where ever we went. You would always jump into my arms. Thanksgiving is coming up and this will be our first one without you. As usual we are planning to go to the lake house for Thanksgiving. My how you enjoyed going there. Are you and Annie and Gabbi playing together? Tell Annie we love and miss her very much. Her passing is still a schock to us. Let Gabbi know we love and miss her also. Well my little Demi I'm gonna leave for now but will be back later. Hugs and Kisses little one.

11/24/11...Hi my little Demi. Happy Thanksgiving. This is our first Thanksgiving without you. It hurts so bad you not being around us for this day. We miss you so much.

There is not a day that goes by that we don't think about you. We miss you so very much and we will love you forever. You were such a great companion. How lucky we were that you let us become your parents. Sometimes I think I see you walking next to me, maybe that is your sign to me. I guess that you, Annie and Gabbi are playing together every day and having fun. Tell Annie and Gabbi that we miss and love them very much. Well my little Demi, I'm gonna go for now but I will be back later. Hugs and Kisses.

12/25/11...Hi my little Demi. Today is Christmas, Merry Christmas. This is our first Christmas without you. My how we miss and love you so much. Last night we opened gifts.

Santa brought you your favorite treats. We shared them with Zoe, Daisi, and Sammi Jo. I hope you don't mind,they really enjoyed them. They said Hi and that they miss and love you.

Our holidays were filled with some joy, but they were also filled with sadness.Well the fireworks were pretty wild this new years. You would have been so scared. You never did like the noise of fireworks. We would cover you with your favorite blanket and hold you so close and tight. I'm sure it was pretty peaceful at the "Bridge" for you and your friends.
