Nudie Nudie Nudie and Update on my Wills

Update ~ My Wills is getting better and on Friday the vet will decide if he needs surgery to remove the gland that was badly hurt.  Wills is off of pain pills but still has antibiotics.  He has wagged his tail some.  He has been very receptive to my treating his wounds.

Now on with news from our Nati City.
This happened on April 12th ~ before I was hurt.

Nudie Nudie Nudie I, Sweet William The Scot, saw a Nudie!
I was screaming look Lee look.  Well Lee looked and the car stopped.
See we in Cincinnati were told on the news that Photographer, Harvey Drouillard, who has made his name taking pictures of nude models in front of well-known public landmarks across the country, had made Cincinnati his next stop.
Yep Great American Ball Park on Opening Day.
Here is a link to the funny cartoon that ran in our paper.

Look Out Boston you are next!
We saw the nudie in this very spot.
Drouillard said “Once I found out all the history -- like the Underground Railroad, as soon as you crossed the Ohio River you were free -- the whole city is about freedom and expression,” he said. “So I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m skipping Cincinnati."
Yep the nudie went up these steps.

Drouillard initially recruited volunteers via an ad on Craigslist.
He has also recruited a “getaway driver,” as well as people on the ground who have already taken photographs of the city for planning purposes.
For baring it all, volunteer models got an 8x10 photo, food and beverages courtesy of Goodfellas Pizzeria and “an adrenaline buzz they will never forget,”  Drouillard said.

Why do I have to put my bum where the nudie was?
I don't have my scarf on, OH NO I am a nudie!

He is coming back in July for a huge group shot right in the center of my city.
He didn’t know about the conservative nature of Cincinnati.
So much dark history, if you will, happened specifically in Cincinnati. A lot of the obscenity laws in the entire country are based on things that happened in Cincinnati.
Robert Mapplethorpe and Larry Flynt had contentious court battles here.

If you want to see the nudie we saw well the link above will show her half way down the page fourth row on the left.
She was at the Elsinore Arch (also known as Elsinore Tower) a registered historic structure in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Constructed in 1883 for the Cincinnati Water Works. It's said to be inspired by the Elsinore Castle (Kronborg) featured in Hamlet.

"He said the photos are not meant to be vulgar, it's not meant to be obscene or pornographic. It's really meant to be about the art. I hope people aren't shocked, you know. If you see us and you don't want to be in the shot, just go the other way."

Well I, Sweet William The Scot, went the other way with one eye open till they left.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Signing Off 
Sweet William The Scot

    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  3. I have to say that Sweet William I find you so much cutie and more artsy than any of the nudie photos.
    Have paws crossed for you that you continue to heal and you do not have to have surgery.
    Your friend,

  4. First of all we are sooooo glad you're feeling better. We were going to send you an email last night. We'll keep our paws crossed for NO surgery.

    That's interesting about the photography. We've seen it in several cities around the world. How exciting to be in your city. Love that castle...great place to explore...and obviously see some DIFFERENT sights.

  5. We are sooo relieved to hear that William is off his pain meds and feeling a little better, woohoo!!!!! Paws crossed that no surgery is needed and he continues to improve quickly.
    Looks like great place to visit, not sure I'd want to take my furs off and pose nudie though! But what an interesting place
    Loves and licky kisses

  6. Sweet William I am so glad you are feeling better and most of all in NO PAIN!! Your Lee is a good nurse.
    Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. I know you were glad to get out and about.
    Hugs Madi

  7. Oh my, that's quite an art project. I have never heard of that photographer. I get the idea, but not sure I would want to see it. Pretty funny that you were in the exact spot.

    So glad you are feeling a little better. My paws are crossed tight for no surgery!

  8. He has been to many Opening Days (once two in the same day) and never a nudie there.

    1. Well Kismet this photographer is going to be at the 86th All-Star Game in my Nati City in July.
      Come get you photo in the group shoot.

    2. But he wasn't at the 2011 ASG in Phoenix. I would have noticed.

  9. We are glad you are feeling better! A wag is a good sign. We hope you do NOT need surgicals! We have never been to your city but you present a compelling case for stopping by!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    PS - Tomorrow the Blogville Barkers debut in their furst practice!

    Aroo to you,

  17. William! We had no idea you'd been injured! We are sending extra-strength POTP to you and hope the vet gives you the paws up soon!

    -Ruby and Otto

  18. We're so glad to hear you are feeling better. We will keep our paws crossed for you. Mom wouldn't let us look at those pictures...but Walter tried to peek anyway.

  19. HEY SW!!!!! OMD, that is such good news!!! I am so happy you are gettin' betters, and that you are off the pain meds (hey, I could use some! BOL!!! jk, they don't mix well with margaritas!). I'll keep my paws crossed that you won't need the surgicals!!
    Nows, about all these neekid peeps runnin' around your city....just be glads one of them is NOT my Ma...that would be REALLY scary!!! BOL!!!
    Ruby ♥

  20. I'd definitely get nekkid for a pizza.

    Glad you're feel better Sweet William.

  21. So glad yer feelin' better, Sweet William... I thinks you looks better "nekkid" than those folkses did... just sayin'....bol, bol!!

  22. Sweet William I am so happy that you are getting better. I will keep paws crossed for you when you go to the Dogter. I love how you show us the coolest stuff where you live. Thank you and guess what I am a nudie too(snickers)

    Loveys Sasha

  23. Oh noes, SWTS...we did not know you were under the weather. :-( My mom's computer died and she's been very lax on reading up on my friends. She and I hope you are doing much better now and it sounds like you've taken a turn for the better! As for the nudie stuff...we would much rather see a handsome scottie than a nudie in pictures of your city! By the LAX airport, there is a place that advertises "nude Nudes!". We laugh every time.

  24. wow that's not bad, a photo and a pizza and 5 minutes of fame (or more LOL). at last that's more than my momma will get when she goes nekked to the dog show with me :o) William, I hope so much that you need no surgery... I cross my paws for friday and I send POTP to you and Lee for good news from the vet.
    easy rider

  25. First off, we are very pleased to hear that our buddy's tail is starting to wag again - we really have been very worried about you SW and we say a prayer for you each morning and each night.
    Now about these naakid hoomans, mom says you'd have to pay her A LOT more than a pizza, a drink and an adrenaline rush to get naakid in a public place *BOL*
    We're keeping our paws crossed for good news when you go to the dogter.

    BIG licks and POTP
    Wallace and Samuel

  26. So glad you're feeling a bit better! Keep that tail wagging and we will keep our paws crossed for NO SURGERY!!!

  27. Good to hear William is on the road to recovery!

    Lucky that peep isn't being nude in our part of the world... They would be VERY cold!!

  28. Really, what is all the fuss about. As if wearing no clothes was wrong or something.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (always proud to be naked!)
    PS Gail and I are so pleased your wound is getting better SW. But please you will continue to take care, won't you?

  29. I'm so glad that you're getting better, Sweet William. I bet that seeing the Nudie helped ;)

  30. Happy to hear you're doing better. We will keep sending our POTP your way. Boy, we always thought you had some fun adventures, but this one beats them all!

    Braeden, Seth and Riley

  31., Sir William got to see a nudie! BOL It seems you may have been more "Sweet William on the Spot" than Sweet William the Scot, catching that nudie in the act. I think the next time that photographer comes to your Nati city he should take a nudie photo of you...sans scarf, bandana, etc. That will get people's attention, don't you think? They'll say "Hey, what you got on under that kilt?" and then realize, you don't have your kilt on! BOL
    I am glad you are feeling better my friend. I sure hope you got our little package we sent you.

  32. I was just popping over to check on my sweet friend, Sweet William the Scot. How are you my buddy??? Just like a strong Scottie, you're handling it well my beloved friend. We'll still send you our hugs and strength from down here in Virginia.

    Your Pal, Stuart

  33. Glad that you're doing better SW


  34. Wow, I'm so glad your ouchie is getting better and I'm crossing paws you won't need surgery! Sending more healing vibes and magic powers to your dogtor too.
    OMD nudie peeps! Scandalous. Teeeheehee We're nudie all the time and no one notices. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Furiend

  35. Paws crossed for you on your Friday Vet visit.

    1. Thanks Bentley ~ I got the last appointment of the day. The vet said to schedule so there would be no one after me and she could take her time. The vet Lee has taken her other Scots to and me retired this year and two young women vets have taken over. Things change but Lee wishes the old vet was still here for this.SWTS

  36. I know what you mean. The older Vets have so much more experience than one just coming out of college. Paws crossed and prayers being sent your way. Good Luck.

  37. Sweet William how was your vet visit? I sure do hope things were healing and you don't need surgery

  38. We were thinking of u and the vet visit.

  39. Happy Mother's Day
    Thinking of you.

  40. First, Happy Mother's Day Lee, we luvs you! Secondly, sending tons of POTP for Sweet William, so sorry he has been injured and is suffering :( Will keep him in our prayers with Mom.
