So, last night I was working in the bedroom when I heard a knock at the door. (Even when the door is open, Geordie usually knocks.) I went to him and asked what he wanted, and he said he had to pee. So, I threw some clothes on really quickly and headed toward the front door. Geordie didn't follow. I tried to encourage him, but he wasn't budging. So, I asked him what he wanted, and he pointed out of the bedroom door. I said that I didn't understand, would he say that again, and he pointed (forcefully, I might add) out of the bedroom door. The next time I asked if he would touch the thing that he wanted, but he again forcefully pointed out of the bedroom door. So, I started walking in the direction he pointed. After a number of steps, I realized I could smell something burning. Oh no! My rice! I completely forgot that I had put a pot of rice on to steam! I grabbed the pot off of the stove and turned it off, then I rushed over and hugged my little boy and told him "Thank you!". I am so happy my dog alarm went off before anything serious happened. Never mind that Lassie dog, my Geordie is a real hero! (I think that when he said that he had to pee, Geordie was using the expression that he knew would get me moving the fastest. Plus, I don't think he knows how to say "The rice on the stove is burning.") As I was running water in the pot, I heard a little "Ahem" behind me. When I turned, Geordie was there, reminding me I owed him a reward. I offered him all sorts of tasty treats, but he chose a mini Milk Bone. My guy is a man of simple tastes.
