This is her life story.  Miki Inveria was the stage name of Princess Gayane Mickeladze.

Her association with Maltese dogs began in the mid 1950’s when she inherited her first Maltese ‘’ Lou Lou “ after her  mother’s death.

Afterwards she was never without one and became an expert on the breed, publishing the definitive ‘ Maltese Dogs ‘ in 1980 with an introduction by her friend, Christopher Fry.

Her memoirs, which she started writing ten years before her death, have been collated by her nephew Dr Henry Stanford. They make fascinating reading.
