Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry that I haven't replied sooner but testing takes time. Here's my update:
I didn't fully try the Velcro because when I placed it between the TP and TS it made a large gap that seemed to kill the charging.
I did try poster tack. Not sticky enough to hold on but sticky enough to "dirty" case back.
Elastic doesn't fit around/hold well because of the shape.
Laying it flat isn't really flat. It is very wobbly.
So, at least for now, I am using the wall charger so that the TP lays flat on my night stand.
About the cords:
There are no teeth or claw marks on them. It seems to be a combination of the shape (round and tall) and the looseness of them. He seems to knock them loose. All of the other plugs on that power strip are shorter, square, and tighter.
We tend to be careful about wires because our first lab puppy, many years ago, was a wire eater. She ate wires I didn't know existed.
Also, we're not banning him from our bedroom. We've never banned any of our animals from the bedroom. They all can be trained, and he will be. It's just the problem of now.
One final thing...
I didn't buy the TP case originally. When they were on firesale, I picked it up. Now I am glad I did and I am really impressed. My TP has taken some serious tumbles during this and there is not a mark or crack on it, but my case does look a little more worn. Yeah, HP got something right.
