Celebrate Family Fun at BlissWood

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Not only is BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch a great place to get away, but it’s the perfect location to get together! We love helping guests celebrate special occasions like weddings, girlfriend getaways, and Texas family reunions!

We recently hosted a fantastic family reunion here at BlissWood. Our location in Texas Hill Country ended up being a convenient meeting spot for a big family that was traveling from all over. Reunion guests hailed from New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio.

When you host an event at BlissWood, you have your choice of 10 spacious houses and cabins on the ranch, as well as 8 more units at our nearby Oasis. This group took advantage of the accommodations at the Dog Trot House and thought it was just right for their big gathering. They had a blast playing games, swimming, and just hanging out.

There are so many things to do at BlissWood for family members of all ages. You can hike, bike, canoe, or fish. Relax and play a game of horseshoes or just take in the beautiful scenery while you spend some quality time with your family.

And what would any reunion be without food? When you have your reunion at BlissWood, you can have meals catered or you can dine at our award-winning Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant. Our last group enjoyed a Saturday night dinner at the restaurant and in addition to a great meal, found the ambiance to be top-notch. They were impressed with everything from the food to the table settings to the service!

And as a little added bonus, one of the reunion guests adopted a foster puppy that was staying at the ranch from All Border Collie Rescue. It always warms our hearts to connect an animal with a loving home after a wonderful visit!

Give us a call today at 713-301-3235. We’d love to help you plan your own family reunion!

Stetson the Sochi Street Dog

Friday, June 20th, 2014

We love animals here at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch. We have a whole host of animals who live here and BlissWood owner, Carol Davis, does great work to help animals in Texas with All Border Collie Rescue, a nonprofit dedicated to finding forever homes for Border Collies.

If you remember the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia earlier this year, you probably recall hearing about their street dogs. Sochi’s abundance of stray dogs made the news during the Games, when authorities began rounding up and killing dogs. When the world caught wind of this terrible development, a number of animal rights groups stepped in to help save the dogs of Sochi.

Many Olympians joined in with the rescue efforts, taking home dogs themselves. Web sites popped up urging people around the world to help and save lives by adopting a dog from Sochi.

Carol Davis found Dog #153 on one such site. The site described him as a beautiful dog with a great personality. Many of his canine buddies from the streets of Sochi had already been rounded up and killed, but Dog #153 was caught by an animal rescue group. Carol took action and began the adoption process. It was a long process – it took months to make the arrangements and help from people on both ends but, in the end it all worked out for the best.

This lovable pup is now a world traveler. He finally made it all the way from Sochi, Russia to Houston, Texas. When all was said and done, he had flown 7,000 miles before arriving at Houston Intercontinental Airport.

Dog 153 is no longer a number. Now he goes by the name Stetson and he’s adjusted quite well to ranch life in Texas! Stetson is having a great time exploring the 600 acre ranch here at BlissWood and enjoying life. He’s one lucky dog!

All Border Collie Rescue’s Dancing for the Dogs

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Everyone looks forward to the weekend, but we’re especially excited this week. We’ve got big plans! This Saturday, BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch will join All Border Collie Rescue for a night of dinner and dancing. On June 7th, we’ll be attending “Dancing for the Dogs” at the Crystal Ballroom at the Rice Lofts in Houston.

The event will feature performances by world-class ballroom dancers, including Top 24 International Latin Competitors, Katia Kuznetsova and Cristiano Callegari! Attendees will even get a chance to see BlissWood owner and former competitive dancer Carol Davis take the floor with Cristiano Callegari!

Additionally, there will be performances by two canine musical freestyle teams from The Texas-Six Steppers dog freestyle dancing troupe. The evening’s emcee will be Shern-Min Chow, news anchor and reporter for Houston’s KHOU.

It will be a fun night, but it’s also for a great cause. All donations from the event will benefit All Border Collie Rescue. We love the work that All Border Collie Rescue does. They’re dedicated to caring for dogs in transition as they look for permanent homes. Since 2008, when All Border Collie Rescue was founded, they’ve rescued over 1000 dogs. BlissWood’s Carol Davis has personally fostered around 200 of those Collies!
