Vivace, our beloved pet of almost 14 years, died today after a long struggle with a respiratory infection. I adopted her when she was a little baby on May 26, 1996, the very day I graduated from college. She was small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and she ran around my apartment in South Baltimore so quickly that I immediately thought of “Vivace” as a perfect name for her. She moved with me to Connecticut and eventually moved in with Erick in Florida when I moved to Germany. She has stayed with him ever since 2002.
She grew to 5 1/2 feet long and loved hibiscus flowers best of all.
Vivace will be missed.
Ligeia, Mindy and Erick
