Old Town Ellicott City is back up and going after May 27th’s devastating floods, sort of. The top end of Frederick Road has had repairs, the sidewalks are in, enough for people to use, and some business were damaged less than others and were able to repair themselves better than others, but The Wine Bin was back up and running as best it can for what roads were open.
Because The Wine Bin wanted to help more local businesses, there were a couple Main Street businesses there selling T-Shirts, Dog Bandanas, and more at this Yappy Hour. Almost so many that there wasn’t room for us, but we made sure there was room for us :-).

People were supportive of their favorite businesses.
Another 2 shops teamed up to sell shirts and more
And they had food available too. These guys pizza was cooked on site in a brick oven and was amazing.
HarborQue was also there with delicious food.
And some of our favorite attendees showed up and showed their Ellicott City and The Wine Bin pride.
The place was packed too, which made us feel better, and I got to see many of my favorite regulars and some of them were very happy to see me, despite the hot temps at the start of the event.
One of the adoptable pupsters came over to join us for a little break as it was slightly overwhelming for him, and hot.
Just two cuties we liked.
Look at this little one. Their eyes! Yes all the treats you want.
Weimaraner friend of ours. He likes to see us too.
Beautiful personality on this golden mix.
And our big dog friends came out too. Look at those eyes,.
Some just stare at me till I photograph them.
And our Boerboel friend was back, and remembered me, and got me all drool covered when I went to say hi (Yes I love to be drooled on at events like this).
Wiggly lab pupster had fun.
Poofdles are always fun.
Despite being hot, this dog loved saying hi.
Sometimes they get distracted.
Or get deep in thought.
But look at those eyes. This dog caught my eye all night.
Our buddy just loves the camera.
Mommy can we keep him?
We will call him one eyed Dan (not really his name).
And Steely was fantastic, though probably a bit hot all day. He is a staple there at the Yappy Hours.
One of the other things we got to see was the #ECStrong bandanas that one of the vendors was selling and many people bought them. It was awesome to see.

Fred (black Lab) and his buddy both had the bandanas.
