LOL my dog Scooter is the same way, although he's not a GSD. He is very strict on rules and order. Sometimes my old girl, Wooby, can't hold it all night and poops in the house, and usually I clean it up right away. A couple of weeks ago it happened when I was sick with the flu, though, and I decided to leave it until my medicine and caffeinated tea had a chance to kick in. Nope! Scooter stood in front of me staring, and every time I so much as shifted my weight, he'd run into the other room, then back and forth for a few minutes until he realized that I wasn't following him to clean it up, then he'd come and stare at me again. After about 10 minutes of this I got so annoyed that I went ahead and cleaned it up, at which point he sighed in contentment and went to sleep on the couch. LOL
He also enforces bedtime and used to enforce a polite wake-up routine, but as he's gotten older he tends to sleep in so not so much that anymore.
