Wine Dogs Get Happy at Yappy Hour

Outer Barks

Duck, NC

An absolute must on every Wine Doggie's schedule when visiting the Outer Banks is Yappy Hour, held at the Outer Barks at the Shoppes at Scarborough Lane. Hosts Kevin and Robin Carey ensure that everyone has a doggone good time.

On most Wednesdays, the field behind the store is filled with all kinds of games and entertainment to keep for vacationing furkids and their families.

and Roy can impress the ladies with his prowess in the pool..

Even this year's rainy afternoon couldn't dampen the Yappy Hour spirits. A little drizzle is no reason to let those specially prepared Arf d'Ouvres that Munchkin loves to munch or the potent Dogquiri cocktails Roy enjoys sipping go to waste.

To help everyone stay dry, the venue was moved to the deck in front of the store. Munchkin wasted no time diving into the turkey fritata and apple spice cake that Robin had prepared.

And Pomeroy savored the cool Puppachino.

The Wine Dogs met up with dogs by the dozens, including dachshounds and labs, a Maltese duo and aptly named Beefy the Bull Dog. Munchkin and Pomeroy also got a chance to show off their artistic skills with a little paw painting.

The Wine Dogs finished the evening with a shop-til-you-drop run through the store, which stocks their favorites from Bark Vineyards... Barkundy, Sauvignon Bark, and Pinot Leasheo. Munchkin picked up a copy of Yorkie Diaries for beach reading.
The only think missing was Robin, who was taking one of the Outer Barks Keeshondens for cancer treatment. The Wine Dogs send puppy prayers, and remind everyone that donations at Yappy Hour help the Friends of Pooh, a 501(c)(3) non-profit or-ganization to help Dare and Currituck County dogs and cats with cancer receive the necessary treatment.
