(note this is not our house, but it is the exact gate we bought)
well, the puppy proofing has begun. and by that, I mean we (Tim) assembled a few (two) baby gates. i somehow convinced him that we needed fancy baby gates for the puppy bc we could re-use them again for kids. win!
well, these gates happened to come with ikea-like directions. you know, the picture-only type of directions. would it kill them to print a line or two? just point us in the right direction here. so, anyway Tim decided he'd put one together...which is good since i had started one then given up.
i started to worry when he told me we'd have to DRILL the gates INTO THE WALLS. what! i did not see anything about this in amazon description or reviews. and let's be honest, permanent gates? sounds a little like prison.
In his defense there was a drill pictured, but i'm still not sure what they meant by that. good thing i intervened, and we figured out with a little tweaking that the gates just used a standard baby gate pressure mounted system.
i may or may not have left a message on their 1-800 number voicemail at this point. they called back THREE days later. good thing we didn't drill them into the walls, or i'd have been a little less pleasant about their timeliness in returning my call.
i just want to get a cabinet locking/kid-proofing thing for under the kitchen sink where we have all the cleaning stuff. then, bring on that puppy! any advice for puppy proofing? i should also mention we have new couches...this will most likely not go well.
