We are located 2 hours from Austin, San Antonio, and San Angelo.  We meet people in Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Burnet, etc. if you do not want to come to the ranch.
I have just been inspected by the AKC again.  I received another "In Compliance" on all items.  The inspection included everything from cleanliness, room for animals, and DNA testing of puppies.  I have a copy if you would like to see it!!!!  Last inspected by AKC on March 20, 2010!  Please be aware of who you are purchasing your new family member from.  All puppies should be vet checked, received vaccinations to date, come with a health guarantee, have a microchip, and be socialized before being purchased.  Find out how WE ARE DIFFERENT by clicking here!!

We successfully adopted the above puppy from Peggy on April 15, 2003.  Everyone in our family couldn't be more pleased.  Dulcie has fit right in with us.  We have 4 kids so Dulcie gets plenty of love. We have received many compliments from friends and strangers of how pretty Dulci is.   Even our vet stated the she is a beautiful West Highland Terrier.

  Puff (on the left) is nearly seven years old and Pete (nearly three years old) is on the right with our daughter, Olivia, in the middle.  
Both of these wonderful pets came from your ranch and we are so thankful for them!  My daughter loves them so much and they are SO good with her.  They are very patient and love to play with her.  Thank you again for enriching our lives with these wonderful dogs!  We can't imagine our lives without them.

Sincerely,K, K, and O Ashy  TX

Cavachons are a designer dog.  They are a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon cross.  They have
very sweet dispositions and make great lap dogs. They possess the best traits of both breeds.  Cavachons recently got voted the #1 designer dog and are also very healthy dogs. 
  These are our new Cavalier King Charles Spaniel males.  The Cavalier is sweet, gentle, playful, and willing to please.  It is amiable towards other dogs and strangers.  Outdoors, it loves to explore, sniff, and chase. All of our dogs are checked several times a year for heart murmurs, eye and hip problems.  We have not had any problems.  Our puppies are checked twice before they leave the ranch.
 
JUST A NOTE FROM SAMMY AND PEGGY

We strive to do everything we can to provide you with a healthy, happy, well adjusted, highly socialized puppy.  Every puppy in our kennel is picked up and played with at least twice a day by an adult (not including the time the kids spend with each puppy).  Our puppies are raised in big pens under a unique system that makes our puppies easy to house train if you follow our instructions.  When our puppies are six weeks old and weaned from their mother, we put an OPEN crate in the pen along with lots of toys and teddy bears.
(One of these is sent home with each puppy).  They are also introduced to the reward system.  They recieve a sweet treat for doing what we request.  Since we do spend 7 days a week with our puppies, we learn of their different personalities.  We "color code" each puppy by it's personality.  We know which puppies are more aggressive or more laid back.  We also mark ones that roll easy and settle down more quickly.  This helps us relate the personality of each puppy to his new parents and family.  We also strongly suggest that your puppy be neutered.
We are happy for you to come to the ranch to pick out your puppy and see the parents.  However, we also know the daily hustle and bustle of life.  We will be happy to meet you with a puppy half way up to 2 hours from Mason free of charge.  Anything over that, we charge a nominal fee.
We take special care of our babies and want to make sure they will have a happy home once they leave us, therefore we do not do email.  We only reserve puppies after speaking to you on the phone..
Please feel free to give us a call if you are interested in having one of our babies join your family.

Thanks.  
Sammy and Peggy
