I'm finding out it doesn't really matter what species. Teenagers left to their own devises make bad choices. Willa has not only reached that phase but is embracing it and making it her own. For instance, enticing Sophia and Dorothy to engage in a duel was a bad idea. They know how to defend themselves and are willing to butt heads with anybody.
Chasing down Blanche though was an even worse idea. Not that Blanche would defend herself. Because she won't. In fact I think she actually enjoys the chase. But, sadly, when Willa caught Blanche she nabbed a chunk of wool from her behind. After that, I was the one she need worry about head butting her this time. That wool is for me and Blanche is not a squeak toy.
So Willa is grounded again. Grounding teenagers rarely works. It's often worse for the parents than the child. Grounded teenagers are bored and lonely teenagers. Willa has taken up trying to "talk" to the neighbors dogs all night long for entertainment. Which, as you can imagine, isn't getting us nominated for any neighbor of the year awards.
In an effort to give her one last chance, Bandit has volunteered to stay with her during the day to keep her company. He said he needed the exercise, anyway. But I don't think he realized what he was getting himself into. Babysitting a teenager is hard work. He'll sleep good tonight even if she doesn't. Poor fella.
