My Cavaliers and I
A born dog fancier, I met my first Cavalier King Charles
Spaniels in 1972 on the London Underground. I fell in love on the
spot, and acquired my first Cavalier soon thereafter: Azorese
Pandaemonium. Panda was my best buddy for nearly ten years.
I bought Lucia as a companion to Panda. I hoped
for pups, but though Lucia had a litter, Panda unfortunately wasn't the
sire. That litter was the birth of my kennel, Ubiquity
Cavaliers--puppies very occasionally! We kept Lucia's son Micquey.
Lucia outlived him by quite a few years, living to the ripe old Cavalier
age of 17.

By then, we'd acquired Emily, a smart, sweet, beautiful
Cavalier whom we lost a couple of years ago. Emily has had one
litter of Ubiquity Cavaliers, which resulted in Sparquie, whom we also
Sparquie and Emily
Sparquie enjoyed being an only Cavalier for a short
while after we lost Emily, retraining me to take her for long walks in
the morning. And then we adopted Lexie, who helped to keep Sparquie, and
me, young! But we recently lost Sparquie, so Lexie is now getting
used to being an only Cavalier, at least for now.
My Cavaliers keep me company during what otherwise is a rather
solitary career of writing and contract lawyering. Emily and Sparquie were
the inspiration and barking force behind
Once a Cavalier. And, of course,
Lexie is both an inspiration and a character in the Kendra Ballantyne mysteries.
There is no sweeter, friendlier, more loving dog than a
