Default She's chewing the cords

I tried to turn on the table lamps when I got home and they wouldn't work.

They were fairly new LED A19's so I looked around and saw a couple of bite marks in the wire.

Thank goodness they are remote controlled so no power was applied.

So now I'm thinking I gotta secure these lamp cords to the wall so I don't come home to a fried puppy.

Hot dogs and Korean food are one thing but fried fur baby is just too sad.

Look at that picture. I believe this dog is innocent of any charges.

Just in case... maybe these would work?
