Annoying beeping

So one day my Mommy came home and my Bro was extremely upset!
He was yelling at her left and right and she did not understand why until she heard our security alarm system beep three time. She went over to the board and pressed the status button and a voice came on, telling her that the system's battery was low.
Now, you have to know that my Bro gets EXTREMELY stressed out when the alarm system gives out warnings like that; he is bothered by those beeps to the point of panic.
He was trying to climb onto my Mommy and carried on like that while she was trying to shut down the beeping. She called the company and the lady was telling her how to take out that low backup battery. By this point my Mommy was upset because my Bro was so stressed out.
It did not help matters that the lady on the phone told her to pull on the cover the wrong way...
After my Mommy told her what she really thought of their system, she finally figured it out how to get the battery out and arranged with them to have the Technician come out with the new one, the very next day.
So my Daddy gets home that evening, and this is what our alarm system looked like...

He asked what happened to it and my Mommy told him that it would not cooperate and it was making Leo very upset. So I guess this is what happens when somebody or something is messing with my Mommy's babies. Good to know!
The next day, the system was whole again...
and my Bro was calm...

You might ask why do we need a security system with Meee and my Pack protecting our turf??? My Pawrents would tell you that it is for our own safety because in case of, God forbid, there is a fire, the smoke alarm alerts the company immediately. I guess that makes sense.

These days we are very busy getting ready for our Florida trip.
You should see the list that my Sis has on what to pack (bathing suit, sunglasses, sunscreen lotion, lots of treats and lots of food, bottled water, etc.)
My Bro and I are just trying to stay calm throughout the whole process... 

Today him and I had our Spa day :o)
I'll try to post picture while on vacation!
The joke of the day:
~ A man went to a restaurant and ordered a steak with baked potato. About halfway through dinner he called the waitress over and said: "Madam, this potato is bad."
She nodded, picked up the potato, and smacked it. Then she put it back on his plate and said: "Sir, if that potato causes any more trouble, you just let me know." ~

Poor Leo! One of my passed away Yorkies "Tuck" used to be so afraid of the smoke alarms when they went off, and we just couldn't turn them off fast enough. One time I think I even knocked one down to get it to stop.
Leo and your mom are going to really need that vacation after that. Take care

My brother also has panic attacks about noises, alarms and pretty much anything which he does not understand. It's ridiculous :)

We sure can relate to that alarm beeping problem and going to all lengths to shut it up! I had that problem back in the summer and no matter what the woman told me to do, the thing would start beeping loudly again. The technician could not get her for almost a week! I ended up covering the entire thing in duct tape until I could barely hear the beeps about the low battery. You should have seen the technician's face when he walked in to check on it! About a roll of duct tape was covering the areas where the sound comes out!! It was freaking Holly out too...the constant beep beep beep!! Glad you got yours fixed! Lots of love, Holly and mom
