What needs puppy proofing?

If you try to remember back to when you brought your first puppy home, what were some of the things that you needed to puppy proof?

I tend to keep an eye on the puppies and just see what draws their attention more than creating a checklist. However, if you needed to write up a list, what are some of the things that come to mind?

Electrical cords are the first thing that come to mind. What would be on your list?

House plants. We put all of our house plants up high.

Cords on mini-blinds come to mind. Also, I am very careful with pens and pencils lying around, particularly on easy to reach surfaces like coffee tables.... I have had more than one pen dismantled and there are some little parts in those pens!

Well, I was going to add all the things Lincoln chewed on, but then it started to get unreasonably difficult.....any chair with low rungs, any wood table, wood molding, drywall, etc.

Wow, could Beamer get his tongue into the socket holes? Scary!

Oh, I also was remembering their amazing scissor-bite antics....Lincoln used to be able to peel off the stickers on things with his teeth!

Add to the list: plastic hampers with those holes in them....it is like a game to them to see how many socks and pairs of underwear they can thread through the holes

I wound washcloths around the low rungs on my dining room chairs and secured with masking tape as 2 of my 3 love to chew on wood.....!
