    I see it is written by Nick Mays who is decribed as a breed expert. Anyone know who he is? Norma

    Hi Norma,
    I've known Nick Mays for well over thirty years, from the days when I used to breed and show hamsters and mice and he showed and bred fancy rats!!
    He has written many books on all sorts of pet animals and used to have a regular column on pet keeping in the Sunday Mirror. He has also appeared on a number of TV programmes. For many years he has been a journalist and feature writer on Our Dogs and often does the champ show reports for the northern shows (Leeds, Darlington, Doncaster, etc). He has owned Cavaliers for at least fifteen years, all wholecolours I believe. I don't think that he has ever shown. He got his first cavaliers from Jean Grant.

    Nice to see another book coming out to add to my collection.

    One thing springs to mind though, if he doesn't show dogs himself, what is he doing advising newbies how to do it?

    Hi Norma

    He was Chief reporter for Our Dogs for 12 years and has owned Cavaliers amongst several other breeds. I understand that he obtained his Cavaliers from Jean Grant.

    Hi Everyone,
    Nick is also editor of Our Cats, is very well known in the Cat Fancy and purchased his first Cavalier from me - Lorphil Ludo by Lorphil LLadro of Cotterlee dob 26th February 1995 and still going strong. This boy gained his bronze, silver and gold Good Citizens awards. Rufus has a website dedicated to himself - type Lorphil Ludo into google and you can see what our wonderful breed is all about.
