Say "Hello" Gracie...I Mean Geordie

It wasn't that long ago that I discovered that Geordie could talk. He has managed to say quite a number of words, but now he will only say this one.

If you say, "Hi, Geordie" and wave to him, he will wave back and say "Hello". It is soooo adorable! (Although sometime he says "Herro" as if he were, perhaps, an Akita.) I am trying to get him to be consistent about answering me so that I can make a short movie of the trick. So far, he knows what the camera is and does his Michigan J. Dog impression.

Today a friend of mine made a dress with a picture of Geordie on it. I'm going to try to put a link in this diary entry. I don't know if you can do that or not, but I'm going to try!

Oops, I guess you can't do links here. Her shop address is:

rabbitwhiskers.etsy.com. If you can, stop by and visit. The dress is adorable; she does wonderful work.

 

Puppy's Potty Mouth

I don't have kids, so perhaps I don't watch my language as much as a parent would. Still, I didn't think I had a potty mouth until this incident.

As I mentioned, I am teaching Geordie to say "Hello" when I wave and say "Hi" to him. One day, we were practicing, but he wasn't doing a very good job. I didn't want to reward him until he did better, but he was starting to get frustrated. Finally, I said "Hi, Geordie!" and waved to him. He waved back and said, "T ' He** with you!" Oh gosh, isn't this just like a little kid!?! They pick up all the things you don't want them to!

 

Guess What We Found?

For the past week and a half, I haven't been able to drive anywhere because my truck has been stuck in ice. I'd like to go out tomorrow, though, so I took Geordie with me while I checked on the ice situation. When we got to the front of the truck, he start barking and yelling and making an unholy noise. I know what that means: he found a critter. So, I popped the hood, and what did we find inside? If you said 66 pine cones stuffed in my engine, you're right!!! I let Geordie walk around on the engine while I pulled them all out. I'm hoping his scent will deter the critter from coming back. And I thought it was bad when I found a dozen walnuts in there a couple of years ago!

 

Geordie and the Rottweiler (Don't worry; it has a happy- ending.)

As all my stories start...

Geordie and I were out for a walk when we met a friendly Rottweiler. I waved and yelled, "Hi, pup!" , and since I've been teaching Geordie to say "Hello" when I say "Hi", he called out "Hello!" to the Rottweiler! Oh why isn't there ever anyone around to hear these things?

 

Happy Birthday to Me!

Geordie celebrated his 3rd birthday on Sunday! I found a "dog cake" at the store (by Canine Cuisine), and I mentioned to my Folks that I was going to give it to him for his birthday. They came to the party with candles and a camera. We all sang "Happy Birthday" to Geordie and got pics of him standing next to his cake. He was thrilled because he likes to be the center of attention, and he likes food. He got a new Loofah dog to play with, and he got to eat the whole cake by himself. He had a bit of a tummy ache that night, but he's all better today. In all, I think it was a winner of a birthday for a 3-year-old of any species!

 

Can a Dog Over-Wag?

Last night, my friend stopped by with her little boy. Geordie never settled down for the whole visit. He wagged very hard, very fast, plus he ran back and forth barking the whole time. By the time my friend was ready to leave, his normally erect tail was curved around his bottom...and it stayed that way. He never yelped, and I know no one pulled his tail. When he tried to sit down, he looked really uncomfortable. I touched his legs and his tail, and he didn't seem to have any injuries. So, I wondered, can a dog pull a tail muscle?

(The good news is, his tail is back to normal now.)

Just a quick note to let any friends who stop by know that we are wishing you a beautiful and joyous Easter! Don't go overboard with the goodies!

 

How the Geordie Weordie Woo Got Its Name and Other Stories- Not By Rudyard Kipling

When I (Geordie's Mom) was just a baby, my mother tried to teach me manners at the table. One day when I burped, she prompted me, "What do we say when we burp?" I thought for a second then threw my hands in the air and yelled, "Piggy Wiggy Woo!" My Mom said it was very difficult to keep a straight face around that kind of answer. In the years since, in my family, if someone burps, you say "Piggy Wiggy Woo" instead of "Excuse me".

If you have a terrier, then you know how they love to burp. If Geordie eats the slightest thing, even a piece of kibble, he lets out a good one. This has earned him the nickname, "Geordie Weordie Woo". In case you've ever wondered when you read his nicknames on his pet page.

 

Stinky Mac Pooperson At the Halloween Party

Last weekend, I took Geordie to a Halloween party at the local pet store. I dressed him in his tuxedo kilt, and he looked like a perfect little gentleman. When I look at him loke that, I don't see a dog, but a little person.

I guess that's why this incident struck me as so funny. We were walking past a kiosk at the store when I felt a tug on the leash. I looked back and saw Geordie standing up on his hind legs, holding onto a shelf with his hands and pooping. I have no idea what made his do it that way, but to see a guy in a tux do such a thing got a lot of attention. Leave it to my dog to be such a goof.
